Oceans 8: What Is Your All-Female Dream Team?

AS we gear up for the release of Oceans 8, James Prestridge of Close-up Culture assembles his all-female dream cast. Tell us your dream Oceans team in the comment section below. 

Amy Adams


Amy Adams has already shown us she is up for the con in David O. Russell’s American Hustle.

Thandie Newton


One of those actors I am happy to see in everything. Thandie Newton brings intelligence and a British accent to this dream team.

Juilette Binoche


I wanted a European flavour to this team. Binoche gets the nod over Isabella Huppert, Julie Delpy and Marion Cotillard.

Kristen Stewart


Another reason to include Binoche is to reunite her with Clouds of Sils Maria co-star Kristen Stewart. One of the best actors of the moment, it was impossible to leave Stewart out of this team.

Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot showed us what a commanding and endearing on-screen figure she could be in Wonder Woman. Who wouldn’t feel reassured on her team?

Rooney Maraoceans1

Rooney Mara has a magnetic quality – what director Benedict Andrews called an ‘alien beauty’ – that would be a handy distraction during in a heist. Mara could be our quiet, enchanting and effective secret weapon.

Emma Stone

Actor Emma Stone in Birdman

Emma Stone brings her trademark smile and tons of laughs to this dream team.

Charlize Theron


This team needs a leader and few actors are better suited for the job than straight-shooting badass Charlize Theron.

And the baddie… Rosamund Pike


Anyone who has seen Gone Girl will know Rosamund Pike can portray a chillingly ruthless villain. The perfect challenge for this dream team to overcome.
