Reboot fever is far from over in Hollywood. Indiewire reports that Sandra Bullock is now set to star in an upcoming reboot of Ocean’s Eleven, this time with an all-female cast. Hunger Games director Gary Ross is reportedly attached to direct, though details concerning the plot are being kept a secret for now.

The new film was reportedly borne out of a collaboration between former trilogy star George Clooney, Ocean’s director Steven Soderbergh, and late producing giant Jerry Weintraub, certainly a well-connected and powerful Hollywood trio. However, no release date has been announced and casting is far from over. Ross will likely start working on the new film after his next movie, The Free State of Jones, is complete.

LET THE FAN CASTING BEGIN

The new Ocean’s movie is only the latest reboot to star an all-female cast. The Paul Feig-directed Ghostbusters reboot, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, is already set to hit theaters next summer. However, it sounds like the two franchises are linked by their conceits. Leaked emails from the Sony hack apparently showed that disgraced former Sony Pictures head Amy Pascal wanted the new Ghostbusters to hurry through development when she got wind of the Ocean’s Eleven project.
