Rihanna has been spotted on the set of “Ocean’s Eight.”
On Thursday, Nov. 3, the singer was photographed leaving her trailer, according to Entertainment Tonight. Rihanna was sporting dreadlocks, which she debuted on Instagram last month.
It looks like the movie production is right on schedule as it was announced via a statement to Deadline in August that filming will commence in October. The movie is set and shot in New York.
Meanwhile, details about Rihanna’s character in the film are yet to be released. The movie’s plot has not been revealed either, although The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit said that a source with knowledge of the production told him it will “revolve around a heist at New York’s Met Gala.”
Aside from Rihanna, the all-female film from “Ocean’s Eleven” director Steven Soderbergh will also feature Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina (real name Nora Lum), Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway.
Before the movie started filming, Hathaway opened up about being part of the project. The “Les Miserables” actress said she’s excited to see the makeup and hair trailers. She also said that she’s eager to work with such an amazing group of women.
“My career has been a series of working with people that are better than me and trying to pick up things that they do, pull them into my life and hopefully get better myself,” Hathaway said. “So I cannot believe I get to do that with women on this.”
Prior to the release of Rihanna’s photos, Bullock, Blanchett and Bonham Carter were already spotted filming in midtown New York.
The screenplay for the all-female “Ocean’s Eight” was written by Olivia Milch and Gary Ross. The latter will also direct the film. A release date is yet to be finalized, but the film will reportedly be out in theaters in summer 2018.
