And you thought the all-female remake of Ghostbusters was amazing. Now there is an all-ladies Ocean’s Eleven spinoff in the works. It is going to be called Ocean’s Eight and the cast sounds amazing. Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett have already signed on and deals just closed with Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mindy Kaling. That’s right. They’ve got Rihanna! The film will begin production in October in New York. No official release date has been announced.
Ocean’s Eleven was a remake of a 1960s film of the same name and had an all star cast including Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, and George Clooney. It went on to make two sequels so we are thinking this film has the potential to do just as well if not better since a whole lot of awesome women are involved.
Honestly, we’d watch this group do just about anything including sitting in a knitting circle, but we’ll take them robbing a casino as well. And if we get an awesome Rihanna song out of it, we will be super pleased.
