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