Ocean’s Eleven (Sandra Bullock)

Post by WyldeMan on 10/29/2015, 8:07 pm

Sandra Bullock is set to take point in the next installment of Ocean’s Eleven, leading a new, all-female team of thieves. Gary Ross will direct the heist flick.

The project is currently in development and appears to have been for some time. Ocean’s producer Jerry Weintraub concocted the concept with the original trilogy’s star, George Clooney, and director, Steven Soderbergh. Weintraub passed away this summer, potentially halting the development, but screenwriter Olivia Milch continued writing a draft which was recently turned in to producers.

Bullock’s latest film, Our Brand Is Crisis, was famously written for Clooney to star but swapped to a female when Bullock showed interest in the role. With a desire for a new installment in the Ocean’s franchise, it looks like Bullock will be taking on a new role with a new team, replacing Clooney’s part as the leader, Danny Ocean. Plot details are being kept under wraps so it is unclear if Bullock is guiding a sequel, reboot, or spinoff.

This film continues a new female-centric trend in Hollywood, with 80s comedy Ghostbusters currently filming a new installment with an all-female cast. (The new Ocean’s film also walks right into a joke that was made by stand-up comedian John Mulaney. In his special New In Town he jokingly declared that a female Ocean’s movie would never work. You can watch the clip below to see his reasoning.)

Over the past few months, there has been a big shift in Hollywood lead casting switching from male to female. It looks like this means we can expect a lot more remakes with female leads now with Oceans 11 and Roadhouse already on that list but I know there are a couple other big projects which recently switched gender leads too.

Guess an original story with female lead is asking too much?

Any original story is asking too much these days, the only development being done anymore is just raiding the catalogs of studios for remakes.
