â€śIt was really so much fun,â€ť she told PEOPLE at Delta Air Linesâ€™ Grammys party in New York City Thursday of her experience working on the movie. â€śItâ€™s going to be a great female caper film. It wonâ€™t disappoint.â€ť
Directed by Gary Ross and starringÂ Sandra Bullock,Â Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Awkwafina, Mindy Kaling and Anne Hathaway, the heist film follows the ladies as they attempt to game the Met Gala in New York City.
â€śThe cast is wonderful,â€ť Holmes, 39, gushed. â€śItâ€™s people that you want to watch and you connect with. And itâ€™s a great director.â€ť
The movie, set to hit theaters in June, comes at a time when Hollywood has started to take a chance on female-led films, like 2016â€™sÂ Â GhostbustersÂ rebootÂ andÂ Wonder Woman, the first major female superhero movie.
â€śItâ€™s always a good time for all-female action movie,â€ť theÂ mum of 11-year-old SuriÂ continued. â€śItâ€™s an adventure and itâ€™s a really fun movie.â€ť
Holmes, who made her directorial debut with 2016â€™sÂ All We Had, will first star inÂ Dear DictatorÂ alongside Jason Biggs, Michael Cain, Seth Green and Odeya Rush. â€śWe joked a lot,â€ť she said of her time on set with her comedic costars. â€śItâ€™s a really funny movie. It was great to work with Michael Cain again and Odeya Rush. I had a wonderful time.â€ť
TheÂ Dawsonâ€™s CreekÂ vetÂ is also gearing up to get behind the camera again. â€śIâ€™m going to direct my new project this spring, so Iâ€™m preparing for that,â€ť Holmes explained. â€śIâ€™m very excited.â€ť
