In 2018, Ocean’s 8 will reboot the Ocean’s 11 franchise with an all-female cast, and what a cast it is! Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kailing, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina lead the film, with The Hunger Games‘ director Gary Ross calling the shots. Star Sandra Bullock revealed new Ocean’s 8 details and talked a little about the inevitable online backlash surrounding a rebooted property with an female-centric cast.

Ocean's Eight cameo

17 years after Steven Soderbergh gave us one of the most charismatic casts to grace the screen in the 21st century with Ocean’s 11, we’ll see a new team of thieves form in Ocean’s Eight. Director Gary Ross put together a hell of a crew, too, with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. One member of Danny Ocean’s gang will appear with them in the film, and now another actor from Soderbergh’s trilogy is now confirmed to join in on the fun.

It’s a cameo, so it’s a spoiler, but if you want to know who else is making an Ocean’s Eight cameo, find out below.

Ocean's 8 (header)

One of New York’s interesting little quirks is that just about everyone takes the train. Even, apparently, criminal masterminds on their way to stage a multimillion-dollar heist at one of the glitziest events of the year. At least that’s my takeaway from our first look at Ocean’s 8, which puts Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) and her crew (including characters played by Cate BlanchettSarah Paulson, and Anne Hathaway) on an MTA subway car. Check it out below.  Read More »

Ocean's Eight Cast

Over the past couple months, the cast of the Ocean’s Eleven spin-off Ocean’s Eight has slowly been filling out. Sandra Bullock was the first name attached to the project, and we later learned that she would be playing Danny Ocean’s sister, who also happens to be a charming ex-con just like her brother. Since then, the cast has added Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling, but now three more names have just been added to the roster. Read More »

Elizabeth Banks Ocean's Eleven

Just yesterday, it was reported Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling had joined director Gary Ross‘ Ocean’s 11 spinoff, currently unofficially titled Ocean’s Ocho (Spanish for “eight”). With Sandra BullockCate Blanchett, Bonham Carter, and Kaling, the heist team needs four more members to round out the rest of the Ocean’s Ocho. The fifth addition to the ensemble film? Possibly Elizabeth Banks, who’s worked with Gary Ross twice before.

Female Ocean's Eleven Cast

Over the past year, the cast of the developing female-led spin-off of Ocean’s Eleven has been slowly growing. The first name attached to the project was Sandra Bullock, and recently a rumor pegged Jennifer Lawrence for a role (though her representative denied the story). Now another name has entered talks to take a role in the spin-off.

Lord of the Rings franchise and Carol star Cate Blanchett is currently in talks for a role in the movie that has the working title of Ocean’s Ocho among the creative executives working on the project. For those who don’t speak Spanish, “ocho” means eight, so we’re looking at a cast that will feature a team of eight thieves instead of eleven. Get more details below. Read More »

Jennifer Lawrence in Female Ocean's Eleven

UPDATE: Jennifer Lawrence’s representative has since denied this report, but that’s something that commonly happens before official announcements are made. There’s a chance this could still happen, but as we said, this story was just a rumor to begin with, so continue to take the possibility with a grain of salt.

Last fall we learned that Sandra Bullock had been lined up to star in a reboot of Ocean’s Eleven, the heist comedy starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts and more. The 2001 film from director Steven Soderbergh was a remake of the 1960 film of the same name starring the famed Rat Pack, so it wasn’t exactly sacred ground that would be tread with a reboot. However, this reboot was going to change things up by making the entire team composed of women. Now Sandra Bullock may have a co-star being lined up.

The Hunger Games franchise star Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to be in the running for a role in the female Ocean’s Eleven cast. Even though Jennifer Lawrence is quite the in-demand actress and is probably eyed for tons of lead roles in Hollywood, this one actually makes sense due to who’s behind the camera. Read More »

Bridge of Spies trailer

The Academy didn’t even think to nominate Tom Hanks for Best Actor this year, despite their overall affection for Bridge of Spies, but in the hearts of Americans he’s already secured the #1 slot. According to the new poll, Hanks is the country’s favorite movie star, beating out fellow A-listers like Denzel Washington, Harrison Ford, and Jennifer Lawrence.

Which isn’t that surprising, really. Hanks is an unquestionably talented actor who does dad movies (Bridge of Spies) and kiddie fare (Toy Story), prestige dramas (Captain Phillips) and bankable franchises (Da Vinci’s Code), and even throws the occasional artsy curveball (Cloud Atlas) for good measure. On top of all that, he enjoys a sterling personal reputation — the only gossip you ever hear about Hanks is about how nice he is.

No, far more surprising is who placed #2: Johnny Depp, who hasn’t led a solid commercial hit since that last, terrible Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Read More »
