Oddly enough, I am starting to get really excited about this prequel/sequel/spin-off of the Ocean’s 11 franchise starring Sandra Bullock. The film also stars, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, and Dakota Fanning.

The heist comedy definitely has a strong enough cast to do damage as well as bring a new flavor to the franchise that declines with each sequel, but the addition of Bond hopeful Damien Lewis (Band of Brothers, Homeland) as lead villain for the the eight anti-heroines as seen above. Lewis’ work consists of mostly strong television roles in iconic series that have seen their respective fame, but his usage in major films is minimal, if not fairly nonexistent if you’re a casual movie fan.

The Hunger Games director Gary Ross will helm the film with a script by he and Olivia Milch.  The film doesn’t have a definitive plot line beyond it possibly involving a heist in New York at the icon Met Gala. Expect it to release in June, 2018.
