Yes, you guess it… The princess of HIp Hop Ms, Nicki Minaj will be starring in a comedy thriller The Other Woman.
Hollywood Reporter writes that Minaj (born Onika Maraj) will star alongside Cameron Diaz, comedic actress Leslie Mann, Game Of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and model Kate Upton. The film will be helmed by John Q and The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes.
The plot focuses on Diaz, who finds out she is the other woman in an affair with a married man (played by Coster-Waldau). After her discovery, she and the wife (played by Mann) join forces to take revenge on the cheating husband. Upton plays another of Coster-Waldau’s mistresses, who also gets in on taking down the cheater. Minaj will play Diaz’s assistant, a woman who’s on her third marriage, who works at a law firm.
Minaj is no stranger to Hollywood, after providing voice acting for the animated children’s film Ice Age: Continental Drift. Cassavetes will begin shooting the film between the spring and summer of this year in New York. No word of any poolside scenes featuring Upton and Mina in bikinis, however.
