'Ocean’s 8' To Star Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling & Awkwafina?

Rihanna is killing it in all aspects of her career. 

Rihanna is the definition of "can't stop, won't stop."

Today (Aug 10), we foudn out RihRih is pushing her acting career to the next level -- the word is that she's incredibly close to claiming a roll in Warner Bros' Ocean's 8.

The movie, which will begin filming in October, is rumored to have an A-List cast which includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Asian American rapper and actress Nora Lum a.k.a. Awkwafina. They will hopefully all be joining Rihanna in what looks to be an incredible continuation of the thrilling movie series.

Ocean's 11 director Steven Soderbergh will take the reigns as the main producer while Gary Ross, who helped write the script, will be the direct the picture. They have been planning this remake for some time now.

Many will remember the plot of Ocean's 11, which featured George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Andy Garcia. The movie told the tale of conman Danny Ocean (played by Clooney), who looks to score the biggest heist in history. He gathers an all-star team of crooks together to attempt a triple robbery of three major Las Vegas casinos -- who are all owned by the same guy, Terry Benedict (Garcia). The team has to figure out a way to do something that has never been done before -- sneaking into and escaping a ridiculous secured vault with close to 150 million in profit.

This will serve as Rihanna's biggest acting roll to date. The singer who most recently shot the summer 2017 Luc Besson-directed Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, looks to take a large stride -- and build on her already illustrious musical career.

Pandora’s Sound On: Spring Campaign Features Khalid, 2 Chainz And More

To usher in the spring season, Pandora designed a new playlist for select cities to help users enhance and amplify their listening experiences.

"We here at Pandora are launching a brand new campaign that amplifies the moment you’re in and helps you discover your unique sound—the music that moves you, the rhythm that fuels you, the album that inspires you to be you," a statement from Pandora's representatives reads.

Choosing iconic locations across America like Nashville, San Francisco, Oakland, New York City, Miami, and Atlanta, these select places have been given their own individual codes that lead to a customized playlist that coincides with the artist's work.

"We’ve commissioned leading street artists to create wall murals that depict their unique interpretations of sound and spring discovery. Each mural will have a QR code that leads to a customized playlist curated by each mural artist and reflects the music that inspired their work."

Some of the big names in music who appear on these playlists include Khalid, 2 Chainz, John Legend, and Becky G with a host of other popular artists. Though most of the playlist represents the artwork created in these select cities, there are hip-hop and R&B influences that make them exciting to listen to.
