Rihanna and the Ocean’s Eight cast are gearing up for some serious scenes. We’ve got pics of the ladies on the film’s set, plus shots of Common, Trevor Jackson, Alfre Woodard and more at the Sundance screening of the Greek life film Burning Sands. Get it all inside…
Ish is about to GO.DOWN. And we’re here for ALL of it.
The Ocean’s Eight ladies, including Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina, were spotted hopping out of a white van in Central Park in NYC yesterday to shoot new scenes for the upcoming flick.
Braving the rain, all of the ladies were dressed in all black as they stepped out the back of a can. It appears the ladies are planning some of type of heist or something.
Details about the plot of the film has remained under wraps, but based on the pictures from the set we’ve seen so far, we believe RiRi is going to play some type of tech genius. If they’re planning a heist, the “Work” singer’s role will play a big part in pulling off a heist. We also know that there’s going to be a Met Gala scene that will feature cameos from the Kardashian Klan.
Hmm…maybe the ladies are planning to take over the Met Gala! We won’t find out until June 8, 2018 when the movie hits theaters, unless more details trickle out before then.

In other movie news….
Days after it was announced he signed on as an executive producer (through his Freedom Road Productions), Common made sure he was front and center at Netflix’s Burning Sands premiere held at the Eccles Center during the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
Not only is he an executive producer, the Oscar winner is also contributing an original track for the film. He wrote “The Cross” ft. singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas that will be performed during the close credits of the film. Karriem Riggins, Robert Glasper and Samora Pinderhuges also co-wrote the track.
“I’m grateful that Freedom Road is a producing partner on this and it was an honor and a joy to create a song for a movie that I’m inspired by,” the Chi-town rapper told Deadline.
Burning Sands will follow the journey of fraternity hazing through the eyes of one pledgee who finds himself torn between honoring a code of silence or standing up against the violence of underground hazing.
The cast — including Trevor Jackson, Alfre Woodard, Serayah and Chiké Okonkwo (“Being Mary Jane”/Birth of a Nation) were also in attendance:
After the screening, Common let loose at an afterparty where he did a Biz Markie cover. Check it below:
