Elizabeth Banks will re-team with her “The Hunger Games” director Gary Ross on the upcoming “Ocean’s Eleven” reboot at Warner Bros. Pictures. Shooting is expected to begin this Fall.
Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and Helena Bonham Carter are all onboard for this all-new, all-female heist caper film which Ross will direct and produce.
Currently going under the unofficial working title “Ocean’s Ocho,” as there are eight thief protagonists instead of the traditional eleven, this would indicate at least three more major principal parts need to be filled by famous actresses.
A continuation of the George Clooney-led films, Bullock plays Danny Ocean’s ex-con sister who, with help from her right-hand woman (Blanchett), forms a team of thieves to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a duplicitous gallery owner.
