Margot Robbie set to star in and produce new Ocean's Eleven film
Margot Robbie looks set to star in and produce a new 'Ocean’s Eleven' movie.
The 31-year-old actress will be directed by Jay Roach - who worked with the star in 2019 film 'Bombshell', which earned her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nod - in the heist motion picture.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie will produce the forthcoming film alongside Tom Ackerley, her producing partner at LuckyChap.
Carrie Solomon has penned the script for the movie, and while details are being kept largely under wraps, the movie expected to be set in Europe in the 1960s.
Gary Ross, Olivia Milch and LuckyChap’s Josey McNamara are set to executive produce.
However, insiders added to the publication that the motion picture is yet to be greenlit, but it's hoped production will get underway in spring 2023.
The 'Ocean's' film franchise has spawned three movies, 2001's 'Ocean's Eleven', 'Ocean's Twelve' in 2004, and 2007's 'Ocean's Thirteen'.
The movie series was inspired by the 1960 film 'Ocean's 11', which starred Rat Pack members Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop.
Steven Soderbergh directed the 2001 motion picture, which starred George Clooney as thief Danny Ocean, who, following his release from prison, sets about planning a three-casino heist in Las Vegas to win back his wife, Tess (Julia Roberts).
Matt Damon, Andy García, Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, and Don Cheadle also appeared in the movie.
An all-female spin-off, 'Ocean's Eight', was released in 2018, starring Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and Sandra Bullock, who played professional thief Debbie Ocean, Danny's sister.
Robbie is currently filming 'Barbie', in which she will star as the titular Mattel doll, and Ryan Gosling will play Barbie's boyfriend Ken.
