Helena Bonham Carter: Ocean's 8 script is 'great for women'

For those who were unaware, there's an all-female Ocean's movie in the works: Ocean's 8. It's not yet confirmed who will take the eight spots in the ensemble cast, but Helena Bonham Carter has gotten her mitts on the script and believes it will be 'great for women'.

She hasn't confirmed whether or not this means she'll be taking a role but we can hazard a guess for sure.

“It’s a really good script — but I still don’t know if I’m going to be in it,” Bonham Carter said to Entertainment Weekly. “But it’s a great script, and it’s great for women. Just hilarious.”

The screenplay was written by newcomer Olivia Milch, and the story centres on a bunch of bad-ass gals who orchestrate the mother of all heists, during the annual Met Gala in NYC. Focusing the plot on this event, of course, means we can expect LOTS of celebrity cameos. Maybe even Ocean's stalwart George Clooney will make an appearance.

Other rumoured actors include Sandra Bullock, Elizabeth Banks, Cate Blanchett and Mindy Kaling but director Gary Ross is keeping schtum for the time being. If any of those names turn out to be a goer, we are SO on board.

With an all-female Ghostbusters due for release next month and an all-female Ocean's movie in the works, what would you like to see next?
