Rihanna to Join Star-Studded Cast of 'Ocean's 11' Reboot

Prepare yourselves to see even more of Rihanna on the big screen, with the latest news that she’s currently in talks to join Ocean’s Eight. She’s set to join Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina — all of whose deals are almost done being negotiated, according toDeadline Hollywood. For RiRi, this acting credit follows her movie debut in 2012′s Battleship and is a follow-up to the announcement she’ll star in the next season of Bates Motel and 2017′s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

The Gary Ross-directed film will be a female-centric spinoff of Ocean’s Eleven, which was led by George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt. Warner Bros confirms filming is slated to begin in October, and by our count that means there’s two more months to fill the eighth leading-lady role.
