American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson ‘in talks’ to join cast of all-female Ocean’s Eleven spinoff

She's set to join Sandra Bullock and Helena Bonham Carter

American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson is reportedly in talks to join the cast of an all-female Ocean’s Eleven spinoff.

The film, which is currently known as ‘Ocean’s Ocho’ is set to feature an ensemble cast that features the likes of Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham-Carter, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and rapper Awkwafina.

But Hollywood Reporter now claims that Paulson is the latest name to be linked to the project, which is set to go into production in October.


Hunger Games helmer Gary Ross is directing the project, and has also co-written the screenplay with writer Olivia Milch.

But they will also receive a guiding hand on the project from original director Steven Soderbergh, who is returning to produce the film.

Discussing the project, Gary Ross previously told SlashFilm how he relished working with Soderbergh.

“He’s a producer on the movie. In one way or another, this has been a 20-year conversation between Steven and I, collaborating in ways the whole world doesn’t know about: I helped him on the previous Ocean’s Eleven films; he shot second unit on The Hunger Games”, he said.

“This, I think, is a very seamless process. We’re different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I’m drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I’m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I’m thrilled and honored to be extending it. It’s really fun to work with.
