According to The Tracking Board, Jennifer Lawrence is supposed to join Sandra at Ocean’s Eleven reboot:
The female-centric OCEAN’S 11 REBOOT might be on the verge of making its next big score, as we’re hearing that X-Men: Apocalypse star Jennifer Lawrence is being eyed for a role opposite Sandra Bullock in the Warner Bros. caper.
Sources reveal that the story, which is expected to be a continuation of the mega-successful George Clooney-led trilogy, centers around Bullock’s character, who plays an ex-con and Danny Ocean’s sister. With a team of thieves, she sets out of steal a necklace from the Met Ball and frame a crooked gallery owner. Lawrence is being considered for the role of Bullock’s right-hand woman.
The project was first announced back in October, when it was confirmed late Ocean’s producer Jerry Weintraub had concocted the concept with Clooney and Soderbergh. After Weintraub’s passing, the project understandably stalled, but Milch continued writing a draft which was turned in to producers. From there, Bullock came on board to serve as an anchor to what the studio hopes to be a cast rivaling the star-power of the Soderbergh films, which included Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Julia Roberts.
According to Indiewire, Sandra will lead an all-female Ocean’s Eleven. The movie will be directed by Gary Ross:
The burgeoning creative partnership between George Clooney and Sandra Bullock that yielded this weekend’s “Our Brand Is Crisis” (in which Bullock stars, Clooney produces, and David Gordon Green directs), is set to kick up a notch in the near future. A new “Ocean’s Eleven” film is in the works, only this time, in line with the recent Hollywood gender-swapping trend, it’s due to feature an all female line-up, with Bullock in the lead, and Gary Ross (“The Hunger Games,” “Seabiscuit,” “Pleasantville”) directing.
Sandra attended Our Brand Is Crisis press conference at 2015 TIFF yesterday, September 12. She was joined by George Clooney, David Gordon Green, Grant Heslov and costar Zoe Kazan. You can watch the conference by clicking on the video below:
Sandra talked about filmmakers’ willingness to re-think the main role for a female:
“You know what, there is so much talk about that right now and it is getting heightened, which makes me very happy. What I would like to comment on is that I was able to say: ‘Would you be willing to take a role that you cherished and worked on for a long time and change it to a female?’ And there was not a lot of hesitation. So that hopefully shows a shift in the climate for women in film.”
She also shared her view on the movie:
“It is about big business and how easily people are manipulated or advertised to in order to sway opinion. And we thought that was very interesting to discuss.”
