Ocean's Eight star Sandra Bullock says the all-female heist film, a spinoff of Steven Soderbergh's successful Ocean's trilogy, is not a reboot. Bullock is set to star alongside Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Dakota Fanning, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina in the new Ocean's franchise entry directed by Gary Ross
Plot details are being kept hush-hush for Ocean’s Eight, but a few leaks have managed to make their way out to the world since filming began in 2016. In one set of leaked images, Rihanna was seen apparently on an undercover mission in janitorial garb, while another leak seemed to indicate that Hathaway may be playing herself in the film. Reports have suggested that Sandra Bullock will be playing the sister of original trilogy character Danny Ocean, and that the movie will involve a heist at the Met Gala in New York.
