Singing superstar Rihanna has turned her hand to acting as she joins the cast of heist movie Ocean’s Eight. The 28 year old has now been spotted along with co-stars Sandra Bullock and Sarah Paulson filming on set in New York.
While the Ocean’s franchise, starring Matt Damon, George Clooney and Brad Pitt was predominantly male led, the new movie has a largely female cast. It follows the remake of Ghostbusters, which changed the main characters in the original movie from male, to female for the new film.
The Ocean’s Eight actresses were outdoors filming in the rain. In one scene, Rihanna was wearing what is thought to be a black prison jumpsuit. Both Sandra and Sarah were also all in black, complete with black hats, filming scenes which looked like they were using a van as a getaway vehicle.
Chatting and laughing
The A List stars seemed to be getting on brilliantly with each other, as they were spotted laughing and chatting between takes, while waiting for their next scene. rihanna was earlier seen turning up for work with her dreadlocks piled up on top of her head, and wearing a huge red coat and Hunter wellies. The new movie stars a host of A List females, with Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter also having leading roles.
There are also cameos from a number of well known stars, including Vogue editor Anna Wintour and reality star Kim Kardashian. There were fears that Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim might not want to be part of the movie, having just been the victim of a robbery herself. But, she has clearly decided to put her ordeal behind her, and has already been spotted on set.
Ocean’s Eight is being directed by 60 year old Gary Ross, who has a history of directing strong female roles, having been at the helm of The Hunger Games franchise starring Jennifer Lawrence.
