‘Ocean’s Eleven’ Is Getting The All-Female Treatment: Here’s Who Should Be In It
A dream we didn’t know we had came true, as there’s reportedly going to be a female-centric “Ocean’s Eleven” reboot happening, led by Sandra Bullock.
The ensemble heist movie — and the sequels that followed — were pure fun, so we can’t wait for director Gary Ross to roll out the new ladified iteration.
Of course, Ocean would be nothing without his (her!!!) 11, so here’s who we think should round out the rest of the major characters. (And, as a bonus, a few name suggestions.)
I mean, obviously. Nobody Clooneys better than Clooney, unless they are Sandra Bullock.
Charming? Check. Funny? Also check. Suh-moooooth? Super check. Retta has our vote to fill Brad Pitt’s shoes as mastermind/Ocean BFF Rusty.
Who could be a better Matt Damon than Matt Damon? Reese Witherspoon, duh. Nobody could resist the power of the Reese as the brooding, adorable con artist on the rise.
Played by Bernie Mac in the 2001 movie, Leslie Jones would be perfect to play the con man/casino worker. She doesn’t even have to say anything, just give
Step aside, Casey Affleck. Ilana is your wry-ass mechanic now.
Scott Caan, out. Abbi, in. As if the other half of the duo would be anyone but Abbi. AS IF.
Eddie Jemison served us well, but imagine the wonders of Rashida Jones being the straightman surveillance expert.
Extra super bonus points if the costume designers can figure out a way to incorporate Ling’s trademark style into the movie’s look.
Please, please, please let Sasheer adopt some of Don Cheadle’s rhyming slang while building bombs. I’ve been waiting for this my entire life, and didn’t even know it.
As if there’s any other choice to take Carl Reiner’s role. AS IF.
I also wouldn’t be mad if Blake Lively was involved in some way, for the record.
