Ocean’s Eight is looking GOOD
Ocean’s Eight is the female spin-off of Ocean’s Eleven, led by Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett in the George Clooney-Brad Pitt positions. Deadline reports today that shooting is scheduled to start in October in New York (as previously noted, it’ll be themed around the MET Gala) and that Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina, and Rihanna are close to signing.
F-ck I can’t decide what role I want Rihanna to play. I feel like I might want to see her fighting incessantly with Anne Hathaway as sisters, that is if they’re doing a parallel with the Scott Caan/Casey Affleck situation in the previous installments. And Mindy Kaling as the amateur thief, like Matt Damon. Awkwafina is obviously the bomb expert. (Please don’t make her the contortionist.) HBC, the master of disguises and accents?
Anyway, Deadline’s exclusive appears to be legit, according to Awkwafina’s Instagram:
That’s 7. Who will be the 8th?
