‘Ocean’s 8’ Announces All Female Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, and more

The female reboot is in full effect

The Ocean’s Eleven franchise is set to have an all female reboot staring big name actresses such as Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. Deadline reports that while Bullock and Blanchett have confirmed deals with Warner, they are also getting close to closing deals with Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and rapper/actress Awkwafina. Warner has also confirmed an October start date for filming.

Ocean’s Eight is expected to do the original justice with Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh taking on the producing duties.

This is right on the tails of the Ghostbuster’s remake which also featured an all female cast. What do you think of the trend?
