Following great success recently with “Carol” and an Emmy-nominated turn in “The People vs. OJ Simpson,” Sarah Paulson is in early talks to join the cast of the female-driven caper spinoff “Ocean’s Eight” at Warner Bros. Pictures.
If she signs, she will join the likes of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina in the Gary Ross-directed feature.
Bullock plays the ex-con sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean in a film in which she assembles a team of thieves to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a duplicitous gallery owner. Blanchett plays her right-hand woman.
Ross wrote the script with Olivia Milch while Steven Soderbergh is slated to produce.
