Sandra Bullock to headline new all-female 'Ocean's 11' franchise
In the original “Ocean’s 11” film, starring Rat Pack actors Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop, a team of men set out to pull off a record breaking heist on New Years Eve. In Steven Soderbergh's revival of the series in 2001, George Clooney and Brat Pitt lead another all-male team to steal over $150,000,000 from the Belagio Casino in Las Vegas. Clooney and Pitt made two more films, rounding the “Ocean’s” franchise out to a trilogy.
Now Indiewire is reporting that Clooney will be reviving the series again, this time with Sandra Bullock staring in the lead role, presumably as a female Danny Ocean. Her team will consist of all women, which is similar to what Paul Feig is doing with his all-female troop of “Ghostbusters.”
Gary Ross is set to direct the film, with Clooney staying on as producer.
