Kicking it up a notch! Sandra Bullock will be leading the charge in the cast for an upcoming all-female Ocean’s Eleven reboot, according to reports.
The Our Brand Is Crisis star will be joining forces with The Hunger Games director Gary Ross, The Playlist reported on Thursday, Oct. 29 — and longtime pal George Clooney may even make a cameo and reprise his role as Danny Ocean.
According to the site, the idea for an all-female reboot of the sleek heist thriller began to float last year among late producer Jerry Weintraub (he passed away this summer), Ocean’s’ trilogy director Steven Soderbergh, and Clooney, 54.
Progress for the project came to a bit of a standstill with Weintraub’s death, however, but the film is now in the works once more, with screenwriter Olivia Milch having already completed a draft of the screenplay.
The first part of the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy was released in 2001, and starred a cast that reads like a who’s who of Hollywood: Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, the late Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Julia Roberts, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Andy Garcia, among others.
Three years later, the same cast reunited for Ocean’s Twelve in 2004; three years after that, Ocean’s Thirteen hit theaters in 2007.
The original 1960’s Ocean’s 11 featured the Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Angie Dickinson.
