Slimy casino owners beware! Ocean’s Eleven is planning another heist, but this time they’ll be looking a little different. Ok fine, a whole lot different.
Following in the seemingly trendy footsteps of Ghostbusters and 21 Jumpstreet , it was just announced that Ocean’s Eleven will be the latest film franchise to receive an all-female reboot. It was also confirmed that Sandra Bullock is locked down to replace her pal George Clooney as the film’s lead.
Although we do know that Hunger Games director Gary Ross will replace Steven Soderbergh in the director’s chair, none of the other actresses have been announced yet. We’re crossing our fingers that Jennifer Lawrence, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Viola Davis, Meryl Streep, Scar-Jo and Angelina Jolie will be considered in the mix. Wouldn’t Scar-Jo make a great Rusty? J-Law as Linus totally makes sense!
But the new Ocean’s announcement also got us thinking. Which all-female reboots will be announced next? Die Hard? Back To The Future? Weird Science? Wedding Crashers? What if Lost Boys turns into Lost Girls or Bad Boys into Bad Girls?
Can we please make sure that all-female reboots don’t become the latest lazy trend in Hollywood creativity like all of the ’80s/’90s TV show movies, endless sequels and comic-book superhero flicks? Please?
Oh, who are we kidding. Bring ’em on. We’re totally pumped about seeing eleven of Hollywood’s top leading ladies ripping off the Bellagio!
