Deadline reported this morning that actors Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helen Bonham Carter and musical entertainers Rihanna and Awkwafina will join Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett in Gary Ross' Ocean's Eleven spin-off Ocean's 8 (or Ocean's Ocho).
The female driven caper spin off will add one more leading lady to the cast and consider the possibilities of cameos from any of the previous versions. Steven Soderbergh will produce a script written by Ross and newcomer scribe Olivia Milch.
With the recent news of a female-led Summer blockbuster falling short thus a sequel not likely to happen (no doubt the vigorous bullying and campaigning against that film had some effect) does the news of a female-led Oceans spin-off destroy anyone's childhoods? The door is that way.
