Deadline reports that Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mindy Kaling are set to join the cast of Ocean’s Eight, an all-female cast spinoff of the successful and star-filled Ocean’s films. If true, the diverse group—pop star, comedians, dramatic actresses—will join the already confirmed Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. Put together an all-star cast of talent, and it would look similar, if not identical, to the above.

The casting of Rihanna might seem like an initial surprise, but the singer has been steadily building her resume of film roles: Battleship, This Is the End, Annie, Home, and most recently Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Though impressive for a pop star, the Academy Award wins of her fellow cast mates cannot be denied.

Ocean’s Eight will be produced by Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderberg. Gary Ross, the man behind the first Hunger Games, is set to direct.
