Rihanna is all ready for her Ocean's Eight role, mon

11.04.2016by: Cherry Liquor

With the high profile all-female cast that they're trotting out for the upcoming OCEAN'S EIGHT movie, I'm wondering if people are going to start bitching as much about this one as they did for the GHOSTBUSTERS remake/boot. Or is no one going to care since the cast is pretty deliciously diverse with some of the top names in acting, including Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson and Dakota Fanning?

Because the producers are wanting to cash in on the truer definition of the term diverse, they've also cast Asian comedian/rapper/actress Awkwafina (you might remember her from NEIGHBORS 2: SORORITY RISING best), Mindy Kaling and Rihanna. But because they needed to be able to say they cast a black woman in their movie and yet still want to appeal to male audience goers, they're not featuring RiRi in as respectable of a role, from what I can tell from the on-set pics that have been leaking out this week. Imagine if they tried to make Kaling be more sterotypically Indian. But it's cool to make the Barbados born singer wear Rastafarian dreads and a Bob Marley shirt for a role? I'm sure that RiRi will approach the role like the badass that she is, I just couldn't go without a narrowed brow, scratching of the chin moment here. I'm expected to support the movie because all-female endeavors like this are important (sadly, I'm probably going to give my $$ to it ONLY under the hope that it will pave the way for some more female-driven material in the future that will be less pigeon-holing) but I'm not going down without expressing my frustration here.

Also... I miss having a Rihanna Halloween moment for 2016. She was such a hardcore full-on Raphael a couple years ago, I was hoping for something even more daring this time around.
