Rihanna joins all-female Oceans Eleven spinoff
Hot on the heels of her casting as major Bates Motel character Marion Crane, it has now been announced that unstoppable hitmaker Rihanna will be further expanding her acting resume when she appears in the all-female Oceans Eleven spinoff.
Dubbed Oceans Ocho, the new ensemble heist film has filled seven of the eight titular spots (‘ocho’ meaning eight in Spanish), with a star-studded lineup including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, and now Rihanna.
While the picture is still in casting stages, we can’t help but feel a hint of skepticism towards the Gary Ross-helmed spinoff, what with the all-female Ghostbusters performing poorly at the box office this year.
Nevertheless, we’re feeling a lot of love towards the cast, especially since the addition of our favourite Barbadian beauty RiRi.
Stay tuned for more info on Oceans Ocho as we hear it!
