Continuing on from what’s been an onslaught of all-female driven casts that we’ve seen at the movies in recent years (think Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters, How To Be Single) the upcoming Ocean’s Eight film is bound to garner a lot of excitement from fans.
In case you didn’t know, the film scheduled to be released in June 2018 will be a spin-off of the highly popular Ocean’s Trilogy with lead actress Sandra Bullock taking the role of Danny Ocean’s sister. The plot? Oh, just to steal a necklace from the grand Met Gala (held every year in New York City) and frame the gallery owner.
Other stars in the film include Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Anne Hathaway and Sarah Paulson, who all make up the eight members of the team (and one star-studded cast at that!) carrying out the heist. It’s being directed by Gary Paulson, who’s directed The Hunger Games and being produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh, who both acted in and directed the Ocean’s trilogy respectively.
With this in mind, we’re expecting a lot of fashion-forward outfits as well as a lot of smart and sassy one-liners come summer 2018 and it can’t come soon enough! In the meantime though, we’ll just have these set pictures to keep us waiting.
