Sandra Bullock to lead all-female Ocean’s Eleven
Sandra Bullock is set to fill the boots of her Gravity co-star George Clooney in a new, all-female reboot of Ocean’s Eleven.
Another addition to the recent Hollywood gender-swapping ensemble trend, the new project will be helmed by The Hunger Games director Gary Ross, with the screenplay to be written by Olivia Milch (Little Women, Queen & Country), and Clooney in a producer’s seat.
Meanwhile, this weekend will see the premiere of Our Brand Is Crisis; a political comedrama starring Bullock in a leading role originally meant for Clooney.
He explained that the film had been ”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”.
Our Brand Is Crisis is produced by George Clooney, and directed by David Gordon Green (Manglehorn, Pineapple Express).
The all-female Ocean’s is expected to be Gary Ross’s next film after he finishes up with The Free State Of Jones starring Matthew McConaughey.
