Actor Emily Blunt will star in Pain Hustlers, a criminal-conspiracy film directed by Fantastic Beasts director David Yates that will be introduced to buyers at Cannes.

This film is based on a script by The True American writer Wells Tower, and is produced by Lawrence Grey through his Grey Matter Productions banner and Wychwood Pictures.

The movie's official logline reads: "Dreaming of a better life for her and her young daughter, Liza Drake (Blunt), a high-school dropout, lands a job with a failing pharmaceutical start-up in a yellowing strip mall in Central Florida."

"Liza's charm, guts, and drive catapult the company and her into the high life, where she soon finds herself at the centre of a criminal conspiracy with deadly consequences. In the vein of The Big Short, American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street, Pain Hustlers is a hilarious, dramatic, and wild journey to the corrupt heart of the American dream."

BAFTA-winning filmmaker Yates is fresh off the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Golden Globe winner Blunt most recently starred in Jungle Cruise, and it will next appear in Christopher Nolan's World War II epic Oppenheimer.
