With Sandra Bullock (Gravity), Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button), Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables), Rihanna (Battleship), Helena Bonham Carter (The King's Speech) and Awkwafina (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) already on board, the cast for the female driven Ocean's Eleven spin-off caper Ocean's Eight is really taking shape. Now news arrives via Deadline that Sarah Paulson (Carol) is the latest actress to enter talks.
Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) is overseeing the new movie, which he co-wrote with Olivia Milch and has been developing alongside Ocean's trilogy director Steven Soderbergh, who will act as producer. While Ocean's Eight appears unlikely to be a direct sequel to the three films that Soderbergh made with the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon (that trilogy itself a remake of the 1960 Frank Sinatra entry), there is a chance that folk from the last three films could pop up in cameos.
What exactly Paulson would do in the movie has yet to be revealed, but it is certainly a stellar cast and she would be a great addition. The actress has been in awards consideration for her work on the small screen in particular, especially American Horror Story and now The People Vs OJ Simpson, in which she played prosecutor Marcia Clark. On the big screen, she has worked on biopic Rebel In The Rye, which should be on screens next year.
