Following in the footsteps of "Ghostbusters," Sandra Bullock is reportedly set to star in a new take on "Ocean's Eleven" featuring a female lineup.
According to The Playlist, the film has been brewing for about a year, with Gary Ross ("The Hunger Games") already on board to direct from a script by Olivia Milch ("Queen & Country," "Little Women"). The project was apparently initiated by original franchise director Steven Soderbergh, star George Clooney and the late producer Jerry Weintraub.
The 2001 heist comedy, itself a remake of the 1960 film of the same name, starred an ensemble cast that includes Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts and Don Cheadle. A commercial and critical hit, "Ocean's Eleven" grossed more than $450 million worldwide, and inspired two sequels. The trilogy earned a combined $1.1 billion.
