Filming for the upcoming Ocean’s 8 flick is well under way, so it’s no surprise that fans have finally been able to catch a glimpse of some of the film’s star-studded cast members working together while on set in New York City over the weekend.
The female-driven spinoff of the 1960 and 2001 Ocean’s 11 films was confirmed in late October by Warner Bros. Pictures and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, who also revealed that the location for the impending Ocean’s flick would center around The Marcy Armory in Williamsburg and would provide nearly 2,200 casting positions for extras who are interested in joining the production of the film in New York State, AM New York reports.
Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett were among the first to be cast in the highly anticipated film upon its announcement in October, with Warner Bros. having secured deals with Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mindy Kaling just weeks later before the beginning of production in NYC, Deadline reports. Sarah Paulson, who won an Emmy for her portrayal of Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson back in September, was later confirmed to have joined the star-studded cast after months of speculation regarding her participation in the all-female film.
With nearly two months of filming having already gotten underway, it looks like fans have finally gotten their first glimpse of Ocean’s Eight‘s leading ladies working together while on set in Williamsburg over the weekend.
Photos of Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, and Sandra Bullock working alongside one another while on location in NYC emerged late Saturday evening via fan-submitted photos on Twitter, prompting users to gush over their first look at the star-studded cast on the social media site.

While details regarding the plot of the Ocean’s 8 film have yet to be released, fans have already begun to take note of each of the actress’ varying wardrobes for their respective roles in the heist comedy film; Rihanna has frequently been spotted donning dreadlocks, oversized outerwear, baggy jeans, and a flawless no-makeup look for her part in the impending flick, even taking to Instagram earlier this month to show off a few pieces from her Ocean’s 8 wardrobe on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway has been seen rocking a more form-fitting ensemble during her time on the Ocean’s 8 set; the actress was most recently seen wearing a green snakeskin coat while riding the train on location in NYC alongside Paulson, Rihanna, Blanchett, and Bullock over the weekend after showing some skin in a head-to-toe burgundy getup complete with a plunging neckline just hours earlier.

The news comes just weeks after Matt Damon, who starred alongside Brad Pitt and George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen, revealed that he may be shooting a small cameo for the upcoming all-female Ocean’s 8 flick, noting that while he hasn’t read the script just yet, he’s “excited to see” what Rihanna, Paulson, Blanchett, Kaling, Hathaway, and Bullock have in store for the suspenseful film.
“I’m doing a little bit in the movie,” Matt Damon revealed of his role in the upcoming movie, ET Online reports. “I haven’t read it yet, but the cast is phenomenal and I’m excited to see what those women do with it. It’s going to be fun.”
Meanwhile, Rihanna has kept busy filming for various other projects that are set for release in the coming year; the “Needed Me” songstress has been busy filming for Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which is currently set for release in July 2017, and was recently cast as Marion Crane in the fifth and final season of A&E’s Bates Motel.
