Rihanna and Anne Hathaway to join ‘all-female Ocean’s Eleven’ cast

The crime caper, titled Oceans Eight, will also star Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter

Rihanna and Anne Hathaway are set to join the all-female lineup of an Oceans Eleven spin-off.

According to Deadline, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and rapper and actor Awkwafina are also close to signing on to the crime comedy. Awkwafina, also known as Nora Lum, was recently seen in Bad Neighbours 2. They will join Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, who were already attached.

Its a really good script but I still dont know if Im going to be in it, Bonham Carter told Entertainment Weekly in June. But its a great script, and its great for women. Just hilarious.

The film will be known as Oceans Eight, which means that one lead actor is still to be cast. Rumours have suggested that Elizabeth Banks may join the film. It will be directed by Gary Ross, known for The Hunger Games and Seabiscuit, and will be produced by Steven Soderbergh, who directed the 2001 remake of the 1960 original, which starred Frank Sinatra as Danny Ocean.

I think its a pretty similar tone, Ross told Slashfilm in June. This is very much an extension and a continuation … Im in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and Im thrilled and honoured to be extending it. Its really fun to work with.

The news comes after reports that the <a href=”http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ghostbusters-heading-70m-loss-sequel-918515″ data-link-name=”in” body link” class=”u-underline”>all-female Ghostbusters reboot will lose $70m (54m), making further instalments unlikely.
