If Ocean's Eight is as much fun to watch as it appears it is to shoot, then the audience should be in for an absolute treat. With the cast taking their cues in the subways of New York City, the all star female ensemble of Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway were spotted in great spirits, as they film the reboot of the series that ended with 2007's Ocean's Thirteen.
50-year old Brit Carter was in a devilish mood, brandishing a fake knife in front of Hathaway. All while both actresses struggled to keep a straight face during production. Should the outtakes be kept for the DVD extras, they will be well worthy of the purchase.
Pop Star Rubbing Shoulders With The Best
Following on from terrific all-female flicks like Bridesmaids and 2016's Ghostbusters reboot that breathed life into a classic franchise, Ocean's Eight could very well be taking this subgenre onto a different level. Never before has such a quality array of female acting talent been put on show like this, taking the lead ahead of their male counterparts like George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt.
While Clooney is said to be featuring in a small cameo, pop star Rihanna will look to use her experience on set with her limited film career. Taking part in the 2012 action movie Battleship, an installment that was sunk before it ever left port, this is a genuine opportunity for the recording artist to learn from the pro's. The 28-year old was described as being in a foul mood during shots in the subway, but cast a very perky picture alongside Aussie Blanchett above ground.
Girls Going For Comedy
Carter could not have been more excited for the movie that will come out June 8, 2018, stating that production has been an absolute blast. The Fight Club, Planet of the Apes and Dark Shadows actress is usually accustomed to the weird and wacky, but this just looks like a ton of fun.
“It’s a really good script…it’s great for women. Just hilarious,” explained the actress.
The wardrobe department appears to be working overtime though, with the ladies sporting all sorts of attire as Rihanna is said to bring her own gear to the shoots. New York City is a buzz of activity at the best of times, but don't be shocked to see the girls out and about on your commute wearing some spectacular stuff and having a ball.
