Ocean’s 11 Female-Led Reboot: Jennifer Lawrence in Discussions

Oscar-winning Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence is a fontrunner to play the right-hand woman to Sandra Bullock’s character in the upcoming female-led Ocean’s 11 reboot. This is according to a report from The Tracking Board, which claims Lawrence is “at the top of the producers’ shortlist.”

The Ocean’s 11 reboot is being directed by Gary Ross, who also directed 2012’s Hunger Games. It would be the first time that Lawrence and Ross have reunited for a movie since.

Sources told The Tracking Board that the female-oriented follow-up focuses on Bullock’s character, an ex-con and the sister of Danny Ocean. In the original trilogy, George Clooney played that part.

“With a team of thieves, she sets out of steal a necklace from the Met Ball and frame a crooked gallery owner. Lawrence is being considered for the role of Bullock’s right-hand woman,” the report says.

In October last year, Warner Bros. confirmed the all-female Ocean’s 11 movie. Clooney is said to be producing, alongside Steven Soderbergh, who directed the earlier trilogy, which itself was a remake of a 1960 movie starring Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

The picture has been in development for some time, and it was allegedly a big reason for the fast-tracking of the competing female-led reboot of Ghostbusters at Sony, which is now set for a July 2016 release.

The 2001 Ocean’s 11 earned $450 million worldwide, and while the two sequels were not quite as successful, they all proved to be considerable box office hits.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
