“The Late Late Show” host James Corden is getting on board “Ocean’s Eight.” The movie featuring an all-female heist group led by Sandra Bullock will welcome the talented comedian and singer as a supporting cast member.
“Ocean’s Eight” also features Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. There were rumors that Jennifer Lawrence was also considered in the cast, but the actress begged off due to scheduling conflicts. Corden will play an insurance investigator who becomes suspicious of the women, Deadline reports.
“Ocean’s Eight” will be an elaborate heist, following the theme of its previous iteration from the “Ocean’s Trilogy” that starred George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt. Bullock plays an Ocean in this film and is supposed to be the sister of Clooney’s character, Danny Ocean. It has been revealed that Damon will play a supporting role in the film as well, but it’s still unclear if the other men will be in the movie as well.
The target of Bullock’s team is Damian Lewis’ billionaire character, who is also an ex-boyfriend. The movie is set to debut in theaters in 2018, but filming has been taking place in New York since October last year.
