It’s official! And we also have a news on the plot and the filming!
Not only has Showbiz 411 confirmed last week’s news that Cate Blanchett (Cinderella, Blue Jasmine, Carol) will join fellow Oscar winner Sandra Bullock (Gravity, The Blind Side) in Warner Bros.‘ all-new, all-female Ocean’s Eleven reboot, they have also added two new names to the roster as Mindy Kaling (“The Mindy Project,” “The Office”) and Helena Bonham Carter (Fight Club, Alice Through the Looking Glass) join the heist film. Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Pleasantville) will direct and produce.
This new film will be a continuation of the George Clooney-led films, with Bullock playing Danny Ocean’s ex-con sister. With help from her right-hand woman (Blanchett, playing the equivalent of Brad Pitt’s Rusty), she’ll form a team of thieves to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a villainous gallery owner. Shooting is expected to begin this fall.
