Mindy Kaling Is Rumored to Be Joining the Cast of ‘Oceans 8’

On the heels of news that Sony’s female-led Ghostbusters reboot has been a slow burner at the box office, Warner Brothers has released details on its upcoming, all-lady Oceans 8.

Oceans 8 is (stay with us here) an update of hit heist film Oceans 11, originally a 1960 Rat Pack vehicle that found new life in the early 00s when Steven Soderbergh spun a reboot into a trilogy starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Andy Garcia, and Matt Damon.

Soderbergh is producing this latest installment in the Oceans franchise, which has already cast Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett; deals are supposedly close to round out the cast with Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, rapper / Girl Code talking head Awkwafina, and Mindy Kaling.
