"When everyone says, 'Well, most characters in commercial films can just as easily be played by a woman', well, I can tell you it's true," she added when speaking to Entertainment Weekly. "That's what they've just done with this." The all-female spin-off of George Clooney's Ocean's Eleven centres around the eight women's plan to execute a heist in New York. The 2001 version was a remake of the '60s classic, Rat Pack, which starred Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis and Peter Lawford. Ocean's 8 will be released in cinemas in June 2018.
