Major: Rihanna Joins ‘Ocean’s Eleven’s All-Female Spin-Off

Published: Wednesday 10th Aug 2016 by Sam

Rihanna‘s résumé at the box-office has been hit and miss. Yet, the star is clearly shooting to score this go round. For, she has officially joined the cast of the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ spin-off.

Full story below…

According to THR, the 28-year-old – along with Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter – join previously announced cast Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett.

Noticed how each name is a woman? It’s not coincidental.

Tentatively titled ‘Ocean’s Ocho,’ the Warner Bros flick will boast an all-female principal cast for the film, which begins shooting in October.

With the original ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ trilogy grossing $1.12 billion worldwide, this latest incarnation is likely to garner immediate attention on the merit of its processor’s success. As well as, of course, the combined star-power of its cast.

Gary Ross will direct, while original ‘Ocean’s director Steven Soderbergh returns in a producing role.


Kudos to Ms. Fenty; this may be her smartest movie play yet.

For, while bringing an undeniable degree of star-power herself, she’ll be padded by the towering talents of Bullock, Blanchett, and co on the acting front. A win for all.

    • Ughhh August 10, 2016

      I wish the cast was more diverse. I’ve been over seeing all white men casted movies and now Im tired of seeing white women. It’s called Oceans Eleven, do you know how diverse that cast can be with eleven different races. But watch 9 white women and 2 minorities

      • GoGo Yubari August 10, 2016

        The GP is odd when it comes to an all female cast. Then again Rihanna isn’t Leslie . I just hope the storyline is good and sleek. Hope she agrees to this.

      • OMG Logic!!! August 10, 2016

        There aren’t eleven different races on Earth. I don’t know what planet you’re from. Besides 64% of the US is White, so at least 7 of the women should be White.

      • Ughhh August 11, 2016

        My apologies, ethnicities. Shades. Hues. Fûcking diversity. Is that better? @ logic.

    This b**** is breaking barriers and taking names,scalps,pocketbooks,and power #navy

    • Kris August 10, 2016

      Breaking barriers? Girl, this isn’t the 60s.

    • you tried it August 10, 2016

      Barriers? This has been done before. Whitney did it, Janet did it and of course the boss Miss Ross. But she didn’t flop and did it best.

  3. Keri Qween August 10, 2016

    My girl getting them coins this year ?

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) August 10, 2016


      • Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) August 10, 2016

        You can’t deny Keri slayed starring in angry birds

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) August 10, 2016

      DEATH11!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT ANGRY BIRD

    • Credits August 10, 2016

      Keri should have auditioned, I bet she would have more to offer than rih…

      • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

        Keri is already filming a movie boo . with Monique and Gabrielle Union. She’s booked. Wyd.

        @Abel Minaj

        Lmao you’re just mad because Plastic Minajs movie went straight to DVD and she’s the Queen of slaying non #1 singles with thr most entries.

        @surprise youre pressedt because Rih is building her acting COINT and all her business ventures are prosperous while Ivy Park is tanking

      • Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) August 10, 2016

        Lmao you stay clinging to Rihanna cuz that thing in your avi has nothing to brag about. Keri has one solo “hit” and that is Basic Biitch Rock, not to mention she went from struggling for 300k album sales to struggling for 100k YouTube views.

      • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

        Lies ugly

        She has three hits turning me on, knock you down and pretty girl rock from two albums.

        Unlike Nicki, Keri has helped write many successful songs. Has her check cleared to Safaree yet? Isn’t he suing ?

        And like i said she’s getting ready to star in her first leading movie role this christmas. So I can talk about plenty h** .

        The struggleprint crossed a million worldwide yet?

      • Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) August 10, 2016

        3 Hits and a gold album!!!!!! When will our faves??? Lmao Biitch Has Keri sold a million period?? ???

      • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

        Nicki sold out to do pop and her past two albums still flopped. The Struggleprint barely made it past gold so wyd? To do pop she should have been doing the Taylor Swift numbers. Every song she has been featured on recently has flopped. The only one struggling is your fave. Go pick up Barbershop on DVD it flopped in theaters

    • Rosie August 10, 2016

      What coins? The only time anyone cared about Big Bird this year was when she deep throated a popsicle for attention on Snapchat (serious).

      • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

        What coins?lmao Roseanne she’s worth more than Plastic Del Rey and whoever Halsey is that you’re clinging to now ( and the song that shes featured on now that you’re clinging to).

        When was the last time anyone cared about your alcoholic fave? Didnt you switch fave’s after Ultraflop stalled at 200k?

      • Rosie August 10, 2016

        Dead at you acting like Bird’s next album won’t stall at LESS than 100K.
        The tea is in 2016, Lana can headline massive festivals alongside acts like Radiohead and play venues with 20K seats while Keri can’t even get 100K views on YouTube and probably can’t even book a Captain D’s in East Atlanta. Stay mad.

      • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

        And her album still sold 145k and dropped 14 spots in one week

  4. Surprise..(DEC 2013) August 10, 2016


  5. HELP August 10, 2016

    Can’t be mad at her… she making moves

  6. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

    Since she’s the token black girl, I just hope the directors keep Rih looking s*xy and don’t have her doing no c*** sh*t. I expect it to flop though. These superstar line-up movies never do well like Suicide Squad, but it doesn’t matter because them checks still green.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

      …Keep Rih looking s*y and don’t have her doing no k00n sh*t.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) August 10, 2016

      I swear u are quickly becoming my fav nazi on this site. The same thing happened with GHOSTBUSTERS, people are much harder on those kind of films and criticize them very harshly.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

        Don’t speak too soon, because I be going hard at ya girl! Also, you’re right critics are much harder on those type of films. I think part of the reason is that there is so much more invested in those films thus should have a better delivery and outcome.

    • MsYonce August 10, 2016

      Lool @ISpeak you’re right about those superstar lineups they don’t do as good people expect. However I think Rihanna being in it could help it do good her fans will go see it. It also depends on which part she’ll get cause I think that Motel series she’s in will only be in like one episode.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

        From a money perspective, I see why it would be great, because Rihanna fans will be lined up just to see her in the movie, myself included. However, what’s the point if its going to be a bad movie. Suicide Squad’s opening numbers were higher than any of Will Smith’s previous projects; nevertheless, it will go down as a bigger joke than Wild Wild West. I want a quality product not some hollywood marketing bullsh*t

  7. eric August 10, 2016

    That’s one less movie I’ll be watching.

  8. FC/JC August 10, 2016

    …. This could either be really good or really bad!

    Furthermore what’s with 75% of movies being remakes now days?
    Where’s the original screenwriting and films?

    • JOHNVIDAL August 10, 2016

      At an all time low, that´s where creativity is. And then, the few original blockbusters which are released every year usually don´t make as much money, except for the amazing Christopher Nolan ones and very few more.

  9. MsYonce August 10, 2016

    Anyways congratz to her get that money girl

  10. LadyS August 10, 2016

    Get it.

  11. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? August 10, 2016

    She’ll be perfect for this cast. I’m sure she’s sharpened up on her acting skills, so I’m definitely here for it. Just watch it be a box office smash just like “Home” was….cause we ALL know EXACTLY whose NAME sold that movie.

    • OMG Logic!!! August 10, 2016

      She’ll balance the overwhelming amount of acting talent of Cate Blanchett with her utter lack of it. So you’re right, perfect!

  12. East African girl August 10, 2016

    Kerri girl is still can’t find husband in atlanta Rihanna is loved by elite hollywood go girl you always proving your haters wrong including this blog #wining

  13. beehive August 10, 2016

    Beyonce’s producer just unleashesd new snippet of New beyonce song

    • GoGo Yubari August 10, 2016

      Nice try. We nuh care 😉

  14. Rosie August 10, 2016

    Huge role for her.
    Why they had to make a sequel to Ocean’s instead of just making an original female heist movie. It’s like Hollywood believes women still can’t lead their own films in 2016, they’re so backwards.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) August 10, 2016

      Exactly…… this flop just like ghostbusters!!

  15. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

    Shoutout to Rih, the official R&B smash of the summer, Needed Me, is officially 2x Platinum.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) August 10, 2016

      In pure sales??

  16. Bow Down B****** August 10, 2016

    Rihanna will obviously play the heux that distracts the cops with her mild-wide opening

  17. Briano August 10, 2016

    Beyonce fans are so b*** hurt that Ri is bigger than their fraud

    That ri is truly an independent woman who stands on her own, from day 1

    She is truly in a league of her own, nobody is making moves like Ri, its soo obvious she been eclipsed beyfraudce

  18. Briano August 10, 2016

    Spare the pure sales nonsense and then so called tour gross rihanna is the more popular act

    Puma, Dior, home, single success, girlfriend is doing the darn thing, youngest selling out stadiums

  19. IG: code_rex2.0 August 10, 2016

    They called it a flop era, yet she keeps booking jobs after jobs, pushing boundaries and stepping into new territories. Congratulations to Rih.

  20. JOHNVIDAL August 10, 2016

    I see this getting the same type of hate Ghoshtbusters got then. Even the new remake for Splash is already getting it just cause this time the mermaid is going to be a man (Chanin Tatun). Not saying it deserves it (I would have to see the product) but it will happen.
    That said I just can´t at this ignorant “ISpeakTheTruth (As If!!!!)” person. Not only does he/she declares that Riohanna is bigger than what Madonna has ever been but she clearly knows nothing about movie industry. Critics weren´t the ones who panned Ghostbusters this time. It was crazy fanboys from the moment they watched the first trailer. In fact, against all odds, the film didn´t get panned at all by critics. They just thought it was mediocre blockbuster like many other ones released every year, but not terrible. I´m sure some of those kids who cannot grow up and they are real critics now (fanboys, nost of them youtube reviewers) and some of the misogynistic assholes had seizuress after watching it wasn´t a disaster 🙂

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

      Also, yo dumbass can’t read nor possess any critical thinking skills. Where did I ever mention Ghostbusters? Not only did I specifically reference Suicide Squad, I was speaking off all films with a superstar line-up. Furthermore, I have voided any opinion of music you have considering yo old ass still listen to music on broken ass Walmart Walkman that was made back when Biggie was still alive. Now, hop off my d*ck

      • JOHNVIDAL August 11, 2016

        Please you´re just ignorant and have zero arguments. The fact you admit you cry when Rihanna achieves something is just absolutely pathetic. Get a life! And learn some things first. My reading skills are perfectly fine thanks. For not being my mother tongue I do pretty well with English. However, you´re the one who lack so many things starting with common sense. are you 12 years old or something?

    • OMG Logic!!! August 10, 2016

      I’m hating on the Splash remake because if Channing Tatum was going to be a merman, it should have been 10 years ago when he was fine af. His body is nowhere near as hot now.

  21. Rory August 10, 2016

    Why would Sam say Rih has been hit or miss at the Box Office?? Has he not looked at the BoxOffice Gross at the movies she’s in???? Lol

  22. B_Roni August 10, 2016

    So excited for Rihanna and this era. I like awkwafina as well. Especially her song yellow ranger and fresh water salmon lol

  23. LB August 10, 2016

    This all star cast can move mountains and shatter red carpets, positive moves Miss Fenty, get those movie accolades.

  24. OMG Logic!!! August 10, 2016

    This has to be a contractual obligation on Cate’s part. To be stuck on a movie with Rihanna of all people…

  25. Bravo!! August 10, 2016

    I’m sure they ask Beyoncé first…

    • Rihboy August 10, 2016

      That’s comical! Why she would never fit the roll of a heist. At all. They just went with the best move.

  26. Juju August 10, 2016

    Samantha is not using her stinky torn dress to shade today? Anyway, congrats Riri, you deserve all things good coming your way. HATERS are good for nothing beyond….. hating.

  27. Mark111 /.\ August 10, 2016

    I always thought Rihanna could act, she just need the right roles. I can tell from her music videos that she has IT.

  28. FarahJ August 10, 2016

    Yassssss riri!!!

  29. jdek August 10, 2016

    GEHMUNNI! #alliseeis$

  30. clingcling August 10, 2016

  31. Thando August 11, 2016

    Another remake…mxm!!! Somebody creative please help us with original material, Christopher Nolan, Quiton Tarantino, Martin Scoserce anybody…and where the f*** is that Nat Turner movie people have been talking about?!

    Poor Kate Blanchett, if she has a scene with Rihanna she’ll be forced to do so many takes.
