Warner Bros. is moving forward with its all-female spinoff of Ocean’s Eleven, this time dubbed Ocean’s Ocho, and has filled seven of the eight spots, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett — both of whom have been rumored to star in the movie — will head up the cast of the Gary Ross-helmed heist film that is scheduled to begin production in October in New York.
Like the other Ocean’s Eleven films, the rest of the ensemble is full of major stars including Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter. Mindy Kaling also is joining the cast, with music stars Rihanna (Battleship) and Awkwafina (Neighbors 2) rounding out the group.
Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh, who is based in New York is expected to be deeply involved with the spinoff.
