Ocean’s Eleven project is set into motion as it’s all female cast has been announced with some pretty heavy names.
In 2001, George Clooney’s band of heist bandits created a buzz in Hollywood. A remake of sort from a Frank Sinatra movie with almost the same plot, a good cast and an interesting story and characterization made the movie an instant hit that led to two sequels.
Ocean’s Eleven became a phenomenon. Over the course of three movies, Danny Ocean’s crew pulled out some of the most spectacular heists that had you hanging from the edge of your seat till the end.
The movie premiered its third part, Ocean’s Thirteen starring the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bernie Mac, Andy Garcia and Al Pacino. We thought that was all we were going to see of the Ocean’s saga but an all-female reboot was under consideration.
George Clooney himself was in favor of helming the project and Sandra Bullock was a shoo-in for the female version of Ocean. According to a sneak peek at the plot, Bullock is supposed to be playing Danny Ocean’s sister. The film was still under consideration until yesterday.
On Wednesday, the Warner Bros. has announced the cast line-up for the female reboot of the new Ocean’s movies aptly titled Ocean’s Ocho. The line-up consists of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and hip hop artist Awkwafin.
Bullock has also taken the production reins from Clooney along with Steven Soderbergh, who directed the original Ocean’s movies and it will be directed by Gary Ross. The project has got the go-ahead from the studio for October.
The main concern is that the movie is coming on the heels of the female reboot of Ghostbusters which suffered a $70 million loss this summer. The film is already eclipsed by the Ghostbusters unsuccessful performance on the box office.
