As you may remember, a couple months back we learned that Warner Bros. talking about making an all female Ocean's Eleven flick — appropriately titled Ocean's Eight — starring Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett!
Well fast forward a couple months and we've got some pretty incredible news as Deadline reports that not only are Anne Hathaway and Rihanna in talks to join the previously mentioned ladies, but Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, AND Awkwafina aka Nora Lum, are also firming up deals!
If you're keeping track, that's only seven women… which means the possibilities are endless for that eighth lady!
Unfortunately, the film doesn't have a shoot date yet as the cast isn't fully confirmed, but if it's anything like George Clooney's hit flick, we're sure to love it!
Not only are we excited about the idea of this female-led flick, but the casting would be incredible news for RiRi seeing as how she's finding more time for acting as she just finished shooting Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
We have no idea whether or not we'll see cameos from any of Ocean's Eleven's original cast like Clooney, Brad Pitt, or Matt Damon, but seeing as how the flick will be produced by Eleven producer Steven Soderbergh, you never know!
Are you as excited as we are for this all-female caper?!
