Ocean's 8: All-female heist movie nabs summer 2018 release date
Ocean’s 8 has set a date. The all-female caper movie starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and Rihanna will hit theaters June 8, 2018, Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow announced Wednesday.
Flipping the script on the testosterone-heavy Ocean’s 11 trilogy that featured George Clooney and Brad Pitt, Ocean’s 8 will also star Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina (a.k.a. rapper and comedian Nora Lum).
Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) is directing the film, and his longtime friend and collaborator Steven Soderbergh — who helmed the Ocean’s trilogy — will be on hand as a producer. Ross has said Ocean’s 8 will be “very much an extension and a continuation” of the previous films.
Plot details have yet to be revealed, but it’s reasonable to assume the movie will include heists carried out with clockwork precision and plenty of wisecracking.
Ocean’s 8 is currently scheduled to open opposite Paramount’s Transformers 6.
