Sandra Bullock to Head Up Female-Led ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ Reboot
Sandra Bullock will lead a new Ocean's Eleven movie, the Playlist reports. Whether the movie is a direct remake of George Clooney's heist caper — which was itself a remake of a 1960 Rat Pack movie starring Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. — remains to be seen, but Bullock will head up a largely-female cast.
According to the Playlist, rumors of this project emerged last year during the infamous Sony hack. An e-mail from executive Amy Pascal revealed that she was eager to get the ball rolling when news of Paul Feig's Ghostbusters remake first broke. Hopefully there will be fewer absurd tears of dismay from a certain section of dissenters over a female-led reboot (or remake, or sequel) this time around.
Gary Ross, who directed Seabiscuit and the first Hunger Games movie, will helm the project. Bullock's role in her new movie, Our Brand Is Crisis, was originally meant for Gravity co-star George Clooney. Given that the two stars are friends, a Clooney cameo as Danny Ocean seems likely.
Will the new Ocean's Eleven movie feature a cast as impressive as Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters? Did the world need another installment of the Ocean's franchise? And perhaps most importantly, who will perform a mesmerizing, laser-dodging capoeira routine in the inevitable sequel?
