Sarah Paulson in Talks to Join ‘Ocean’s Eight’

Sarah Paulson is in negotiations to join “Ocean’s Eight,” the all-female spinoff of “Ocean’s Eleven.”

If the deal goes through, Paulson would join Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina.

Gary Ross, whose credits include “The Hunger Games” and “Free State of Jones,” is directing. Bullock’s character will be the leader of a group of thieves and cons who try to pull off a major heist. Ross is directing from a script that he co-wrote with Olivia Milch.

“Ocean’s Eleven” director Steven Soderbergh and Ross will produce with executive producer Susan Ekins. Village Roadshow is co-producing and co-financing, as it did with the three previous “Ocean’s” movies starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Greg Silverman and Jesse Ehrman are overseeing the film for the studio.

Production is scheduled to begin in October in New York.

Paulson has been nominated this year for Emmys for “American Horror Story: Hotel” and for her portrayal of Marcia Clark  in “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” She’s been nominated four other times — three for “American Horror Story” and once for “Game Change.”

Paulson recently joined Ryan Murphy’s upcoming FX anthology series “Feud.” She’s also appearing in the recently completed “Rebel in the Rye.”

She is repped by UTA. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
