Sarah Paulson Joins Rihanna and Cate Blanchett in All-Women ‘Ocean’s 11’ Spinoff


Cate Blanchett. Rihanna. Mindy Kaling. Helena Bonham Carter. Anne Hathaway. Sandra Bullock. Awkwafina. Recently, it was announced that the dizzyingly awesome list above made up seven of the eight stars for the upcoming Ocean’s 11 spinoff, apparently not titled Ocean’s Eight but rather Ocean’s Ocho. The eighth remained undetermined, until this morning, when The Hollywood Reporter shared that Sarah Paulson (who was also just announced to be joining yet another Ryan Murphy project — Feud) would be making the already fantastic cast somehow better.

The publication also says that sources are alleging the film will take place at the Met Gala. (Which, if there’s any truth in that, might lead to the question of whether all these famous people could be playing con artist versions of themselves.) Production is supposed to begin in October, with The Hunger Games’ Gary Ross directing this one, and Steven Soderbergh (who directed the original — oh, wait, even Ocean’s 11 itself was a remake) producing.
