As you probably remember, Gary Ross is directing an Ocean’s Eleven spinoff which focuses on an all-girl team lead by Sandra Bullock. Right now, the working title for the film is Ocean’s Ocho, and Cate Blanchett will play Bullock’s right hand lady.
But there are a lot of other roles to fill on that crew, and according to goofy celebrity rumor site Showbiz 411, two of those slots could be filled by none other than Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling.
These are two extremely exciting names in terms of what each will add to the ensemble. Kaling in particular is due for a big break outside of television, and I'm excited to see what she does here. I’m also curious to see whether Blanchett and Carter will be allowed to keep their natural accents.
In any event, this is shaping up into a really exciting project. Hopefully it doesn’t ruin too many dude childhoods.
