It is being said that Rihanna will be starring in the Ocean’s Eleven spin-off Ocean’s Eight. She will be apart of an all-female cast that will include some pretty a-list actresses such as Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and rapper Awkwafina.

Ocean’s Eight will be produced by Steven Soderbergh, who was also the director of Ocean’s Eleven. It’s pretty cool that Warner Bros. decided to have an all-female cast. Casting for the film is still in progress, but the casting directors are definitely on the right path with the roles they have already filled.  

This project would be a great notch under Rihanna’s acting belt. If she does well in this movie, she may have even more movie roles at her doorstep soon. This could definitely be the start of a “Rihanna Hollywood movie takeover”.

The details of the storyline has yet to be revealed, but filming for Ocean’s Eight is set to begin this October.
