Rihanna Reportedly Joins ‘Oceans Eight’ Cast
Bad gal Rih just landed another opportunity. Not too long ago we reported the Bajan songstress would be checking into the Bates Motel for a role in A&E’s upcoming show, now the pop diva will be returning to the big screen as well.
According to Deadline, Rihanna has been cast in the upcoming heist film, Oceans Eight, a spinoff of the popular Brat Pitt and George Clooney Oceans franchise. Although there are no details on Rihanna’s role just yet, this will be the singer’s fifth film, and perhaps, one of her biggest starring roles.
Oceans 11, and its subsequent sequels, raked in over a billion at the box office, and this latest entry will focus on a female-led cast. In addition to Rihanna, Oceans Eight will reportedly feature a multicultural cast, including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Asian American rapper Awkwafina.
The film will begin shooting in New York this fall, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it included a new song from Rihanna.
