Do you think Sandra Bullock can hack it as the female equivalent of George Clooney?
Ocean’s Eleven is taking a reboot page from Ghostbusters with a planned all-female cast, starring Bullock.
Though the movie is reportedly just in the very early stages of planning, The Playlist reports that Bullock, along with The Hunger Games‘ director Gary Ross, has already signed on to be a part of the flick.
It’s also rumored that because of Ross’ involvement, Jennifer Lawrence might also be in negotiations to join the production.
Little Women‘s Olivia Milch is penning the female-centric script.

The Playlist also reports that Ocean‘s trilogy producers Jerry Weintraub, Steven Soderbergh and Clooney all initiated the project last year. As soon as they agreed to give the script a go, Milch began working. She has since handed in at least one draft for review.
Though there have been whispers of the film, including a few mentions with Amy Pascal during the Sony leaks, the news of the potential film has not officially broken until just recently, due to the fact that it’s in such early stages.
No news on the plot details just yet, but we can all safely assume that it will involve a female-powered heist that we can’t wait to see.
There are so many amazing females who could join the production, so let the speculation begin. Personally, we’d love to see Julia Roberts get involved, since she was part of the original franchise. Angelina Jolie might be interested since she’s Brad Pitt’s wife (Pitt starred alongside Clooney in the original trilogy). And if Lawrence is going to jump on board, then perhaps Amy Schumer will join, too, for some much-needed comedic relief. She and Lawrence are, after all, newly minted BFFs.
