As reported by Deadline, producers are close to signing deals which will ensure an impressive roll-call for the movie. The full list so far consist of Bullock, Blanchett, Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and rapper/comedienne Awkwafina.

As the site notes, the film is still casting. Only seven of the title’s eight have been announced, and it remains possible that characters from Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy might make an appearance. Both Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks were previously rumoured to be in consideration for the movie.

The movie will be directed by Gary Ross, who also helmed the first Hunger Games movie, and produced by Soderbergh. According to The Tracking Board, Bullock will play the sister of Danny Ocean, the character portrayed by George Clooney in Soderbergh’s films.

In an interview with Slashfilm in June, Ross explained that he would very much follow the tone set by the hugely successful original trilogy. “I think it’s a pretty similar tone,” he said. “You know, Steven and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation. He’s a producer on the movie.”

Ocean’s Eleven earned $450 million worldwide in 2001, and while the two sequels weren’t 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.
