Since Cardi B recently pulled out as the star of the used-to-be-upcoming film Assisted Living, production company Paramount Players pulled the plug on the project until further notice. 

According to Deadline, the $30 million film was just a week away from starting production, and the reason for Cardi’s pullout is that the Grammy-winning artist is overextended. 

In Assisted Living, Cardi B was to play Amber, a small-time crook on the run after she’s wrongly accused of a crime. After struggling to find someone to take her in, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place no one will look — her estranged grandmother’s nursing home.

Though legal action is often the follow-up in a situation like this, sources tell Deadline the hope is to put the pieces back together to begin production later this year.
