Look Out: Rihanna Just Landed an Epic New Gig

RiRi is branching out.

Girl power alert!

It looks like Rihanna's secured herself a major new movie role alongside some heavy-hitting actresses as, according to reports, she has officially an ensemble cast in the upcoming film Oceans Eight.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, RiRi and Anne Hathaway are the last to join the cast of the film, which is an all-female reboot of Ocean's Eleven

Those also confirmed to star in the film are Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling.

Bullock will lead the film, which will follow a similar plot to the George Clooney-led predecessor, which is about a group of thieves and cons who carefully try to successfully carry out a major robbery.

The film's director, Gay Ross, (The Hunger Games) spoke on just where you can expect this film to stand among its major predecessors: "It's a pretty similar tone," he said. "You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren't. I don't think he would've wanted anyone to do it if we weren't. This is very much an extension and a continuation."
