Rihanna Will Star In All-Female “Ocean’s Eleven” Spin-Off!
It looks like Rihanna has officially been bitten by the acting bug. We just told you the music star would be playing an iconic role in the A&E series, “Bates Motel.” Today it was announced she would also be part of the ensemble all-female cast of the upcoming Oceans Eleven spin-off, Oceans Ocho.
Seven of the eight cast members have been filled and they include Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkafina.
The film is scheduled to start filming in October in New York.
For those who are not familiar, Oceans is a heist move franchise which spawned three films such as Oceans Eleven, Oceans Twelve and Oceans Thirteen. They all starred George Clooney along with the likes of Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bernie Mac, Don Cheadle and Julia Roberts to name a few.
This all-female spin-off comes at a time where Sony’s most recent remake of Ghostbusters failed to garner the box office success many thought it would achieve due to its $150 million budget.
What we know for certain about this film is the ladies will be following in the footsteps of their predecessors by playing robbers.
