The heist is on!

Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett were spotted together in character for the first time one the set of their new film, Ocean’s Eight, in New York City. The Oscar winners, who have never costarred before, lead an all-star cast for the all-female spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven trilogy.

Bullock, 52, looked inconspicuous wearing a long gray trench-coat and aviator shades, while Blanchett stuck out from the crowd in a velour green suit and leopard-print coat. She also sported a new set of blond bangs.

News broke in October that an all-female version of Ocean’s Eleven led by Bullock was in the works. Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling and Nora Lum (better known by her moniker Awkwafina) will be joining Bullock and Blanchett in the star-powered reboot.

The film, helmed by The Hunger Games director Gary Ross, will continue the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy, which starred George Clooney and Brad Pitt and was directed by Soderbergh.

“It’s a pretty similar tone,” Ross told Slashfilm this summer. “You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation.”

Earlier this year, Bonham Carter told EW that she wasn’t officially on board yet, but had read the screenplay (written by Ross and Olivia Milch) and was a fan.

“It’s a really good script – but I still don’t know if I’m going to be in it,” she explained in June. “But it’s a great script, and it’s great for women. Just hilarious.”
