Showbiz411 confirmed the rumor that Cate Blanchett is joining fellow Oscar winner Sandra Bullock in the heist flick. They are also reporting that Mindy Kaling, Elizabeth Banks, and Helena Bonham Carter are jumping on board, as well. "Hunger Games" director Gary Ross is helming the spinoff, but the site confirms his former star, Jennifer Lawrence, will not be added to the cast.
Bullock is expected to play the Danny Ocean (George Clooney) of the movie, with Blanchett as the Rusty (Brad Pitt) counterpart. The spinoff is supposedly being called "Ocean's Ocho," indicating there will be eight heist participants versus 11, like in the original. So, what other Oscar winners can they bring into the pack? Dialing Brie Larson!
"Ocean's Ocho" is set to start filming in New York City late this year or early 2017.
