Nope, you’re not dreaming.

The all-female cast will star in Ocean’s Eight, a gender-flipped reboot of Ocean’s Eleven.

The reaction on Twitter has been overwhelmingly positive, which is a refreshing antidote to the backlash following the announcement of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot.

The one question that remains is… who will the eighth bandit be?

The rumours are that there could be a cameo appearance from stars of the original trilogy like Julia Roberts, but it has also been suggested that Elizabeth Banks may join the film.

Ocean’s Eight will be directed by Gary Ross, known for The Hunger Games, and will be produced by Steven Soderbergh, who directed the 2001 remake of the 1960 original, which starred Frank Sinatra as Danny Ocean.

Check out Twitter’s reaction below… 

There was pure delight… 

Relief…

And people actually nearly stopped living…
