Sandra Bullock is heading the cast, which includes Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, and Sarah Paulson.

Greg Silverman and Jesse Ehrman are overseeing the film for the studio. Production is scheduled to begin soon in New York.
Ocean’s Eight had been listed previously on the June 8, 2018, only as a Warner Bros. “event film.” will open against Paramount’s sixth Transformers movie, planned as a spinoff centering on Bumblebee autobot.
Ocean’s Eight is a spinoff from the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy of heist comedies released in 2001, 2004 and 2007, which were directed by Steven Soderbergh, produced by the late Jerry Weintraub and starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts. The three films grossed more than $1.1 billion worldwide.
Sandra appeared on the premiere of the new talk show “Harry” starring her Hope Floats co-star Harry Connick Jr. She was adorable talking about her children Louis & Laila.
Sandra Bullock is loving being a mother of two, though she admits it hasn’t been a quiet experience.
The Oscar-winning actress caught up with old friend Harry Connick Jr. on his new daytime show Harry, and gave a cute update on her son Louis, 6, and 4-year-old daughter Laila.
“The babies are so good. So loud. So loud. I have the loudest children on the planet, I don’t know if it’s the acoustics, but they are amazing,” Bullock, 52, shares before the host adds, “That’s because they are New Orleans kids, man.”
In 2010, the star adopted Louis, who was born in New Orleans, when he was 3½-months-old. In December 2015, Bullock exclusively told PEOPLE she had adopted Laila from Louisiana, where she had been in foster care until age 3½.
“They are just good, funny souls,” the proud mom said.
The loud moments of parenthood aren’t the only times Bullock has fun with her kids, she also enjoys quiet sleep time rituals.
“The most peaceful time of day is when I know for a fact that both of them are successfully asleep,” she previously told PEOPLE. “I can leave their room knowing we have another day under our belt.”
