Ocean’s Eleven Remake Will Feature Elizabeth Banks Alongside Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett

With Ghostbusters about to hit cinemas, the next big movie to receive a female-led remake is Ocean’s Eleven. The project was first announced late last year, and is set to star Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. It has now been reported that Elizabeth Banks will be joining them.

According to Showbiz 411, Banks is the latest star to sign up for the heist comedy. The film is to be directed by Gary Ross, who worked with Banks on The Hunger Games, and helmed the likes of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville. Banks is also known for the Pitch Perfect films and will soon be seen as the villainous Rita Repulsa in the upcoming Power Rangers reboot.

Last month it was rumoured that Jennifer Lawrence was also being considered, but the site now reports that this is no longer the case. It does however state that Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling are also on board.

Accord to The Tracking Board, Bullock will play the sister of Danny Ocean, the character portrayed by George Clooney in Steven Soderberg’s trilogy. Soderbergh is set to produce the new movie.

The 2001 Ocean’s Eleven earned $450 million worldwide, and while the two sequels were not quite as successful, they all proved to be considerable box office hits. That first film was itself a remake of the 1960 movie starring Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

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.
