Ocean's Eight (female spinoff)

One of the more curious projects in the works at the moment is a female-driven Ocean’s Eleven spinoff. At first, this seemed like one of those ideas that might resurface from time to time but never actually get made, but having amassed an impressive ensemble that may include some combination of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Elizabeth Banks, and maybe Jennifer Lawrence, this thing is not only happening, it actually sounds like it could be terrific.

I understand that females have typically been screwed over in Hollywood, but does remaking a male based movie like this and Ghostbusters really help equalize women, or does it just promote the idea that the only way a female movie like this can be made, that it has to be based on a male based movie????

Maybe I'm overthinking, but it just seems that if they want to make more female based movies...that they should like...make more female based movies.

I think that is valid. They are kind of setting themselves up for failure by rebooting a famous movie that had an ensemble cast of male actors. Not because male actors are better, but because it will give people something to complain about as soon as the movie is announced.

Look at this summer's Bad Moms. Original movie. All female cast. People really liked it.

Original Ghostbusters cast appearing in the all female reboot. Matt Damon appearing in the all female oceans movie. It's Hollywood's way of saying "these people are okay with it and you should be too"

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter in official photo for Ocean 8.

TIL that Awkwafina is a person and that Boyjack Horseman's Aquafina is a parody of that?

Man, this is going to bomb so hard. I'm surprised they didn't at least get Charlize Theron, a female actor who could actually carry a movie.

Sandra B, Cate B., and Anne Hathaway are all leading ladies IMO
