Rihanna To Join ‘Ocean’s Eight’ Cast & Will Receive MTV VMA Vanguard Award

Work, work, work, work, work!

Rihanna is on her grind!

The Pop icon is in negotiations to star alongside Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina to star in the female-driven Ocean’s Eleven spinoff, Ocean’s Eight.

Via Deadline:

For Rihanna, this becomes another high profile entry into movies for the singing star who most recently shot the summer 2017 Luc Besson-directed Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Silverman has been trying to find a vehicle for her since seeing Rihanna at a House of Blues appearance early in her career. The film first galvanized around Bullock, who starred in Gravity and has a long relationship with the studio, and then Blanchett.
