Warner Bros has revealed October as the start date for director Gary Ross’ Ocean’s Eleven female spinoff, and confirmed further details on its principal cast.

The studio has reportedly closed deals with Anne Hathaway, singer Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Nora Lum (aka Asian-American rapper Awkwafina), in addition to already-confirmed actresses Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett for the film – titled Ocean’s Eight – which follows on from the original Ocean’s Eleven trilogy (via Deadline).

Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh is also attached to produce, with the script penned by Ross and Olivia Milch, however, it seems the picture is still casting for the eighth member of its star line-up (given the title).

Susan Ekins is the executive producer and production senior vice president Jesse Ehrman is overseeing the film with Silverman for Warner Bros. – AFP Relaxnews
