Rihanna Scores Role In All-Female Cast Of ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ Spinoff

Rihanna is expanding her presence in film…

The Hollywood Reporter reveals RiRi has landed a role in an all-female cast of Ocean’s Ocho, a spinoff of the 2001 film “Ocean’s Eleven” starring Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Matt Damon.

She’ll star alongside actresses Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mindy Kaling. The heist film is scheduled to begin production in October in New York.

After Rihanna’s highly-criticized role in “Battleship,” and the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters that arrived in theaters this summer (which got dismal reviews), is this gearing up to be a dud?

At any rate, RiRi is a certified hustla with a resume full of business endeavors, so cracking into the world of film is clearly her next goal!
