Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway and Awkwafina make up the titular “Ocean’s eight”.
The Hunger Games‘ Gary Ross is directing from a script he co-wrote, with George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh serving as producers on the project. Shooting started yesterday (October 25) on location in NYC and Warner Bros. has set a release date of June 18, 2018.
Before she appears in Ocean’s Eight, Rihanna will be seen in upcoming sci-fi film Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets.
She co-stars alongside Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne and Clive Owen in the film, which set for release in July 2017. Writer-director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) is adapting the story from a popular series of French 1960s graphic novels.
Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets will be Rihanna’s second major live-action film role following 2012’s Battleship. She also took on a voice role in last year’s computer animated hit Home.
