Sandra Bullock wants it clear to everyone: Ocean's 8 is not just a gender-flipped version of Ocean's 11. It's definitely its own thing.
"We’re not a reboot," she said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, "We’re just a this is what’s happening in 2017. It’s not even a passing of the torch. It’s a parallel story of another family member that was raised in the same family Danny Ocean was and what happens when Debbie steps out of jail with all of these amazing, powerful women."
The synopsis lets you know 8 has the same DNA as Ocean's 11. It's about "Danny Ocean's estranged sister Debbie," who "attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City's star-studded annual Met Gala."
But first, of course, she has to put together "the perfect crew."
We'll see how the crew pulls off their heist when Ocean's 8 hits theaters on June 8, 2018.
