Ocean’s Eight, the recently announced all-female spinoff of the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy, was seen shooting in New York City.


Stars Sandra Bullock and Helena Bonham Carter were seen exiting a cab in Midtown Manhattan. Anne Hathaway, who will also appear in the film, can be seen in the advertisement on top of the yellow taxi.

Director Gary Ross (PleasantvilleThe Hunger Games) brought the idea for the female-powered remake to Ocean’s trilogy men Steven SoderberghGeorge Clooney and the late Jerry Weintraub in 2014. The script was written by Olivia Milch. Soderbergh and Clooney will be producers this time around.

Stars in the cast include Bullock, Bonham Carter, Hathaway, Cate BlanchettMindy KalingRihanna and rapper Awkwafina. Apparently, filming has started, though the plot has remained very hush hush. From the film’s title, we can guess there will be eight cunning thieves in this incarnation. However, it is important to remember that this will not be a remake or reboot of the original Ocean’s Eleven or of the Clooney trilogy, but will be a spinoff.
