Rihanna, Anne Hathaway Join ‘Oceans Eleven’ Reboot With Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock

Rihanna and Anne Hathaway are in negotiation to join “Oceans Eight,” the all-female reboot of “Oceans Eleven.”

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mindy Kaling, who had previously been linked to the Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow co-production, are leading the ensemble. Nora Lum (better known by her rap name Awkwafina) has also boarded the spinoff from director Gary Ross (“The Hunger Games”).

The film, led by Bullock, will follow a similar path to the George Clooney-starrer about a group of thieves and cons who try to pull off a major heist.

Ross told Slashfilm in June that the pic continues the “Oceans Eleven” trilogy, which also starred Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.

“It’s a pretty similar tone. You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t,” he said. “This is very much an extension and a continuation.”

“Ocean’s Eleven” director Soderbergh and Ross will produce with Ross and Olivia Milch penning the script. Susan Ekins is executive producing, while Greg Silverman and Jesse Ehrman are overseeing the film for the studio.

Production is scheduled to begin in October in New York.

Rihanna can be seen next in the Luc Besson-helmed “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” She is repped by WME.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
