Hello! The movie has its official title, and it’s not Ocean’s Ocho…
“We’ll break the cast right now and blow up the Internet,” director Gary Ross joked after we mentioned Ocean’s Eight to him.
The director didn’t reveal to us the film’s entire ensemble cast, which has been previously reported or rumored to star Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Elizabeth Banks. One thing Ross did tell us, however, is that his film is very much a continuation of the tone Steven Soderbergh established with his incredibly entertaining Ocean’s remake trilogy.
The rumored title for the Ocean’s Eleven spinoff was Ocean’s Ocho, but Ross confirmed to us that the title is Ocean’s Eight. Ocean’s Ocho was simply a nickname they had for the project.
