Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, and newcomer Awkwafina (a.k.a. Queens-raised rapper-actress Nora Lum) are among the talented ladies joining the Oscar winner and the equally celebrated Cate Blanchett in Ocean’s Eight, the spin-off caper that The Hunger Games’ Gary Ross will begin shooting in New York City this fall.
Helena Bonham Carter – long rumored to be in the running for a role – also was confirmed this morning, so that’s seven women who are firmly in place for the project, which Steven Soderbergh will produce.
Who will be the eighth?
And will George Clooney sign up for a cameo?
He kinda has to, no?
