Remember the ‘Ocean’s 11’ movies, with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon as part of the ensemble cast? Well, you know Hollywood knows nothing more than a reboot these days, and they decided to follow the lead of the ‘Ghostbusters’ producers: rebooting the franchise with an all-female cast! Sandra Bullock has been tapped to star.
The script has been written, so at this point, it’s about casting the rest of the parts. Who could join Sandra? It seems like it could be anyone. Gary Ross will direct the movie; he worked with Jennifer Lawrence on ‘The Hunger Games.’ Perhaps he could persuade Jennifer to join the cast?
Entertainment Weekly had a great suggestion: cast Lupita N’yongo. Outside of her top-secret role in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ we haven’t seen her on the big screen since winning the Academy Award (and a slew of other roles for ’12 Years a Slave’). Lupita would be GREAT for ‘Ocean’s 11.’ Melissa McCarthy and Sandra had great chemistry in ‘The Heat.’ George is one of the producers; perhaps he’ll film a cameo ;). Really, it seems like they could go in a lot of different directions with this reboot. I’m excited to see who they decide upon!
