Sandra Bullock will star in an all-female ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ reboot.
The 51-year-old actress is in talks to take on the leading role in the third incarnation of the movie, with Frank Sinatra starring in the 1960 version and George Clooney in the 2001 remake.
According to The Playlist, ‘The Hunger Games’ director Gary Ross will helm the project while Olivia Milch has been working on a screenplay.
Late Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub, ‘Ocean’s trilogy director Steven Soderbergh and star Clooney had been working on the reboot together before Weintraub’s death earlier this year.
‘Ocean’s Eleven’ is expected to be Ross’ next movie after he completes work on ‘The Free State of Jones’.
Sandra and George, 54, have been close friends for years and recently worked on 2013’s ‘Gravity’ and current release ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ together.
For ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’, Sandra actually took on the role originally meant for George, while he produced the film.
George explained it was “languishing in development” until Sandra called him to say she wanted the part, adding: “The minute she called and said she wanted to play the role that had been written as a man, the movie went into production.”
