Rihanna set to join the cast of ‘Ocean’s Eight’

It wasn’t too long that Rihanna was involved in a Hollywood movie, fulfilling the role of voice actor of Gratuity ‘Tip’ Tucci in DreamWorks’ ‘Home’ and also having her new song ‘Sledgehammer’ included in the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack. With some news today, it doesn’t seem that Rihanna's Hollywood appetite has been quenched.

RiRi will be playing an acting role in the upcoming all female spin off movie from the Steven Soderbergh-directed ‘Ocean’s trilogy’.

The original ‘Ocean’s trilogy’ included the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, but according to Hollywood trade publications who reported on Wednesday, Rihanna will be working with stars such as Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Asian-American rapper/actress Nora Lum (a.k.a Awkwafina). While the cast list is still to be officially confirmed - indeed, only seven of the titular eight principal cast members have been named - Warner Bros. have said that filming for ‘Ocean's Eight’ (dubbed Oceans Ocho) will begin in October.
