NEW YORK, NY August 16, 2016
Following in the footsteps of the Ghostbusters franchise, Ocean’s 11 is about to get an estrogen-filled (and, thusly, improved) spin-off. So far, the all-star lineup includes none other than Rihanna, Sandra Bullock (who will serve as the George Clooney of the group), Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling — the ultimate #girlgang.
New York-born rapper and comedian Nora Lum (aka Awkwafina) will also star, which still leaves one spot remaining for the film to live up to its title. Who will it be? We know what you’re thinking…but Jennifer Lawrence reportedly declined the role due to scheduling conflicts. Based on the way this year’s been going, our money’s on Amy Schumer, Brie Larson or Alicia Vikander.
The film, which will be directed by The Hunger Games’ Gary Ross and produced by Steven Soderbergh, the man who lensed the original Ocean’s 11 trilogy, is set to film in New York this October. Get ready for some seriously lit post-NYFW street style sightings.
