Ocean’s Eight to be female spin-off of Ocean’s Eleven franchise
With the official or working title being Ocean’s Ocho, the fourth (or that is fifth if you count the original Ocean’s Eleven of course) installment of the the Ocean’s Eleven franchise is to feature an all female team this time.
Although there is no word of Julia Roberts (since that would make sense as she is married to Danny Ocean, now being Tess Ocean) being one of the main characters, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth Banks, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and rapper Awkwafina (Nora Lum), are on the roster (although not all official as of yet).
Ocean’s Ocho is to be directed by Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Hunger Games) and to be produced by Ocean’s Eleven alumni George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh. In the obvious course of diversity, the franchise is also written (Olivia Milch) and executively produced (Susan Ekins) by women also.
