With Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon and more playing the new Ghostbusters and at least two female takes on The Expendables in development, it’s the turn of another big franchise to get a gender swap. Sandra Bullock is reportedly ready to star for Gary Ross in a new take on the Ocean’s Eleven films.

According to The Playlist, this has been in the works for some time with original trilogy director Steven Soderbergh involved alongside the modern-day Danny Ocean himself, George Clooney (as a producer), and Ocean’s behind-the-scenes mainstay Jerry Weintraub, who died in July. It appears things are moving along rapidly, with writer Olivia Milch at work on a script.

The exact plot details of that screenplay remain locked in a casino’s vault for now, so we don’t know how – if at all – it will tie into the Soderbergh/Clooney Ocean’s trilogy or even quite what shape it will take. But Bullock, who is on US screens now in Our Brand Is Crisis, in a lead role developed for Clooney, is certainly on board to star and Ross may end up making the movie once he’s finished work on his latest, The Free State Of Jones.
