Talk about an INCREDIBLE cast! Rihanna, Mindy Kaling and more fierce females are set to join Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett in the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ spinoff titled ‘Ocean’s Eight!’
Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina all have roles in Ocean’s Eight, according to our sister site Deadline. They’ll star alongside Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, who were previously announced. This all-female spinoff of the Ocean’s series is going to be so epic. However, there’s still one actress missing to complete the title. Who will it be?!
Rihanna can truly do it all. The singer has a role in the upcoming Valerian & the City of a Thousand Planets. She also just announced that she will play Marion Crane in season 5 of Bates Motel. She’s nabbed these roles in the middle of working on, releasing and touring for her latest album!
Hunger Games director Gary Ross is taking over directing duties from Steven Soderbergh, who director the original Ocean’s trilogy. Even though Ocean’s Eight is going to be a new spin on the Ocean’s series, Gary isn’t trying to make this film completely different from the original movies.
“We’re different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I’m drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot,” Gary told SlashFilm. “I’m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I’m thrilled and honored to be extending it. It’s really fun to work with.”
The Ocean’s trilogy starred George Clooney, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Andy Garcia. We could definitely see some of the original cast members make cameos in Ocean’s Eight, just the original Ghostbusters cast did in the Ghostbusters reboot!
