Jennifer Lawrence has been in talks to star in the all-female reboot of Ocean’s 11 with director Gary Ross.
Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s series became one of the most popular and loved movies around the globe. From its great cast ensemble including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Bernie Mac, Don Cheadle and more to the storylines to everything else there is to love about con movies, Ocean’s took it all to the next level. People expected another movie after the release of Ocean’s 13 but it never came and we thought that we had seen the last of the Ocean’s crew.

Turns out, the Ocean’s team was going in another direction. Looks like Ocean’s producer Jerry Weintraub was working on another entirely different idea with Clooney and Soderbergh.
During their planning Weintraub passed away which might have delayed the project a little but the remaining two and screen-writer Olivia Milch kept working on the script. And they came up with the script where the Ocean’s plot will continue with Danny Ocean’s sister who is also an ex-con gathering a team and pulling a heist involving a necklace at the Met Ball and framing a crooked gallery owner for the crime.
The project was finally announced in October last year and director Gary Ross and actress Sandra Bullock are already attached with the project with Bullock taking the lead role.
The casting has to finalize before production and the next actress who is in talks currently to join the project is Jenifer Lawrence, according to The Tracking Board. Lawrence, who has just finished up with the Hunger Games franchise and will be finished with the X-Men franchise later this month has already worked with Ross on Hunger Games.
She is predicted to play the female version of Rusty which was played by Brad Pitt in the original movies. Rusty was Ocean’s right hand man and Jenn might probably be Bullock’s right hand woman. It is a wise decision to get Lawrence on-board as she has a demanding schedule and also a gravitas that will help more actresses to consider joining the project.

Production for the project is expected to start later next year by which time the cast is expected to be finalized.
