With a heist crew that includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina, how can you not be stoked for Ocean’s 8? Just in case you needed a little extra convincing, Paulson has debuted the first official poster for the Steven Soderbergh-produced sequel / spinoff, and it has one hell of a tagline.
Sandra Bullock has been relatively quiet as of late. She starred in Our Brand Is Crisis and lent her vocals to Minions in 2013, which means the last time anybody actually saw her face (sorry, Our Brand Is Crisis) was in 2013’s Gravity. Presumably, she’s been getting some quality time with the family while waiting for the right script, which has hopefully come in the form of the all-ladies Ocean’s 8 due next year. But today brings the news that the former Miss Congeniality has now laid plans for another future project, and this one’s going online.
If your movie stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, and Anne Hathaway, your movie needs no help in the star power department. Nonetheless, the awesome-sounding Ocean’s 8, a female-centric spinoff of the Ocean’s Eleven franchise, will feature at least a couple of cameos from the old series’ crew. Matt Damon previously confirmed he would make an appearance as master pickpocket Linus Caldwell. And in an interview with Vanity Fair, Carl Reiner reveals he’s got a scene in Ocean’s 8 too.
Any list of the best movie remakes of all-time has to include Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven, a classy, canny update of the Rat Pack heist flick that originally starred Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Angie Dickinson. Soderbergh’s Ocean’s was an even more star-studded affair featuring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Julia Roberts. The critically acclaimed and commercially successful comedy ultimately spawned two sequels; together, the three Soderbergh Ocean’s made more than $1.1 billion worldwide, a number so large it would even impress Sinatra and Clooney’s Danny Ocean.
When they’re not hanging out in city parks wearing cool outfits and plotting fashionably, the cast of the all-female Ocean’s movie Ocean’s Eight is casting around for new members. While the movie’s been in production for some time, it’s just added James Corden in a supporting role.
‘Ocean’s Eight,’ the all-female heist comedy spinoff of Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ might be getting another new cast member. For the past few weeks the film has been collecting star after star like a poker player scooping up thousand-dollar chips, and multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Sarah Paulson is the most recent to be in talks to join the fun.
We’ve heard rumblings for a while about Gary Ross’ all-female ‘Oceans 11' reboot. In addition to Sandra Bullock leading the film, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and Helena Bonham Carter have all been rumored. Now three more spots have reportedly been filled in what is some of the weirdest casting news in a while.
