Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling lead the cast for a 1960s-era entry into the Ocean’s 11 series of movies.
We’ve known for a couple of months that after they’re done with the Barbie movie that’s currently shooting (pictured), both Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling have signed up to star in a new addition to the Ocean’s 11 series and perhaps, subsequent sequels too. However, according to fresh details listed on the Film & Television Industry Alliance, it seems that the project may not be a 1960s-set prequel after all, but rather a direct remake of the 1960s original.
How important that detail might be to the final film is negligible, but it is being reported nonetheless, although we can see how it could conceivably operate as both, given that we’ve also heard rumours that the new film may feature younger versions of characters from the 2000s series of films.
Jay Roach, who directed Robbie in Bombshell, has been tapped to helm the production whilst a host of star names will no doubt soon be named to appear alongside Robbie and Gosling, if the film plans to follow in the tradition of previous entrants in the series.
According to previous reports, the Ocean’s prequel will be mostly placed in Europe and will be set decades before George Clooney’s Danny Ocean and his pals set about engaging in outlandish heists and hi jinks. Little else is known about the project at this point, apart from fresh reports that the production window begins in March which tallies with reports we’ve previously heard.
We’ll bring you more on this one as we hear it. As with most Ocean’s films it will be fun to see who makes up the cast and you can be sure that when we hear, you’ll be the first to know.
