We were all so excited when more news regarding Ocean’s 8 was announced last month — not only is it a spinoff of the very popular Ocean’s Eleven trilogy, but the impressive all-female cast is just excellent news. The original film definitely helped the already-glowing careers of George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt, so it’ll be exciting to see how actresses Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina do.
“It’s a great opportunity to spend more time with [Rihanna],” she said to MTV News’s Josh Horowitz. “We got along really well when I hosted SNL and she was the musical guest. I’m looking forward to seeing her again.”
It turns out, she had similar enthusiasm with E! News when discussing Rihanna. (To be fair — who wouldn’t?)
“She was gorgeous in every way you can be gorgeous,” she said.
Ocean’s 8, also referred to as “Ocean’s Ocho,” is set to start filming in New York this October, and Deadline reports that Gary Ross is set to direct. The only thing they need to do between now and then is cast a few more parts. And perhaps, secure a few key cameos. Since, hey — we’d never be willing to kick George Clooney off of a set.
