Rihanna’s acting career is taking another star-studded step in what is hoped to be the right direction. The singer has officially been added to the cast of Warner Bros’ all-female reboot of “Ocean’s Eleven.” This role follows closely on the heels of Rihanna’s announced participation in the final season of “Bates Motel.”
Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are set to headline the film with Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling added to the mix. The Hollywood Reporter notes that, following the outcome of the new “Ghostbusters” movie, female spin-offs are becoming a risky business.
The movie, “Ocean’s Ocho,” begins production in October and will follow the same comedic heist plot as the original films.
