Ocean's Eleven: Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to be at the top of the short list for a planned continuation of the Ocean's Eleven series. Reportedly, she would join Sandra Bullock, with Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) eyed to direct. Bullock would play the sister of thief Danny Ocean (George Clooney in Steven Soderbergh's trilogy), described as an ex-con who "sets out to steal a necklace from [New York's] Met Ball and frame a crooked gallery owner." [The Tracking Board] Godzilla 2: Filmmaker Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) has dropped out of directing the sequel to Godzilla (above) in favor of pursuing his own, "smaller in scale" projects. The filmmaker first gained notice with the low-budget Monsters. The release date for...

Plans continue to be put into place on the planned, female-led reboot of Ocean’s 11. It was a project that Sandra Bullock had been linked to, and The Hunger Games’ Gary Ross is working on the screenplay, and is set to direct too. Ross is putting his script together with Olivia Milch.
Now we learn that there may be a The Hunger Games reunion here, with the news that Jennifer Lawrence has come to the top of the casting shortlist. That’s not a sizeable surprise (she is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet), and Lawrence hasn’t committed to the movie at this stage. It may come down to whether he schedule can accommodate the planned autumn shoot for the movie.
Sandra Bullock is still in line to play »

15 years ago, a movie starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts would have been automatic box office gold -- a guaranteed $35 million opening weekend. This weekend, however, the pair's "Money Monster" opened in third place, with an estimated $15.0 million, and even that was better than analysts predicted.
Because it came behind "Captain America: Civil War" (which held the top spot for the second week in a row) and Disney's "The Jungle Book," "Money Monster" will probably engender a lot of hand-wringing about how original movies and old-fashioned star power no longer attract audiences like they once did. Even though the film earned a modest $3 million more than expected.
There was similar discussion this time last year, when Clooney's "Tormorrowland" flopped, followed by the failure of Cameron Crowe's "Aloha," despite the presence of Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone. Many observers saw those failures as a death knell for both original screenplays »

Update: Jennifer Lawrence’s representative has since denied this report, but that’s something that commonly happens before official announcements are made. There’s a chance this could still happen, but as we said, this story was just a rumor to begin with, so continue to take the possibility with a grain of salt. Last fall we learned […]

In the age of reboots, no property — no matter how recent, revered or reviled — is off-limits. The latest case in point: Steven Soderbergh's entertaining "Ocean's" trilogy, itself a remake of the 1960 Rat Pack classic, which only concluded nine years ago. Not unlike "Ghostbusters," the caper dramedy is set to be remade in all-female form, with Sandra Bullock leading the cast and Gary Ross ("The Hunger Games") directing. Rumor has it that Jennifer Lawrence is now a distinct possibility to join the franchise as well. Read More: Dream Casting the All-Female 'Ocean's Eleven' Remake, Starring Sandra Bullock It wouldn't be the first time she'd worked with Ross, of course, as the actress first came to international attention for playing Katniss Everdeen in the "Hunger Games" series. Over the last few years, she and the director have also been at various stages of development on two other projects — namely, »

There have been rumblings of an all-female Ocean's Eleven reboot for a while now, but it seems that the project is taking off with Gary Ross signing on to direct. It also seems like the Hunger Games director isn't coming alone. Because it now appears that his Hunger Games lead Jennifer Lawrence is coming along for the ride, as the actress is on the short list to play a lead role in the film. According to the Tracking Board, X-Men: Apocalypse star Jennifer Lawrence is on the producers' short list to be a lead in the all female Ocean's Eleven movie. Gary Ross will be co-writing the screenplay along with directing the film. Sandra Bullock is already attached to play the lead role in the film, and rumor has it that Lawrence would be her right-hand woman. Seeing as how Lawrence likes to reteam with directors, »
With help from her right-hand woman (presumably Lawrence), she'll form a team of thieves to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a villainous gallery owner.
Filming is expected to begin this fall.

Back in October, we reported that Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock is coming aboard to lead an all-female cast in Warner Bros.' reboot of Ocean's Eleven, with Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) set to direct. We haven't heard any updates on this project since then, but today we have word that one of the biggest stars in the world may join the cast. A new report claims that Jennifer Lawrence is being eyed for a role in this new project, with early negotiations currently under way.
The news comes from The Tracking Board, which also sheds some light on the story. Our original report revealed that this reboot actually originated from Ocean's Eleven star George Clooney, director Steven Soderbergh and producer Jerry Weintraub, who brought on Olivia Milch (Queen and Country) to write the script. While it wasn't known at the time if there would be any connection to Ocean's Eleven or its subsequent sequels, »
In case you didn’t know, The Hunger Games director Garry Ross is currently prepping a new take on the Ocean’s 11 franchise. We don’t exactly need another reboot of the 1960 original, as Steven Soderbergh’s attempt was pretty good back in 2001 (even if it was followed by two lacklustre sequels), but we’re getting one anyways. And, keeping with the current trend in Hollywood, this version is going to be led by a female cast.
We originally heard that Sandra Bullock was being courted to head up the pic, and now, The Tracking Board is bringing us news that Ross has his eye on his Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence. Said to be more of a spinoff than a reboot, Bullock will apparently play Danny Ocean’s sister in the film, while Lawrence is wanted for the role of Bullock’s second in command. Together, they’ll attempt »

With the release of her new film X-Men: Apocalypse only a few days away, The Tracking Board is reporting that Jennifer Lawrence has lined up a new project, with the Oscar winner in talks to join the all-female reboot of Ocean’s 11.
Gary Ross, who directed Lawrence in the first Hunger Games film, is attached to direct the reboot at Warner Bros with fellow Oscar winner Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) set to star in the Danny Ocean role.
Apparently the new film will continue on from the Steven Soderbergh-directed trilogy with Bullock playing the ex-con sister of Danny Ocean (George Clooney). She would be helped by her right-hand woman, similar to the role played by Brad Pitt, which is reportedly who Lawrence would be playing. The ladies will then “form a team of thieves to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a villainous gallery owner. »

Now three seasons into the HBO series “Silicon Valley,” T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch have developed terrific chemistry as tech-world outsiders — the former a gaseous stoner, the latter a quivering bundle of anxiety. That same dynamic is more or less on display in “Search Party,” a woeful road comedy that was produced before “Silicon Valley” but is only now sputtering out into the world. Stepping behind the camera after partnering with director Todd Phillips as a writer on hits like “Road Trip,” “Old School,” and “The Hangover: Part II,” Scot Armstrong bros out again with a lewd-and-loud blockbuster comedy in the Phillips tradition. A binge-drinking session away from being a fourth “Hangover” movie, the film is a non-starter in theaters, but a who’s-who of alt-comedy talent may give it a boost on VOD, with attendant morning-after regrets.

And the official winner of "Captain America: Civil War" is ... Jenny Slate! The comedian/actress/author, known from "Saturday Night Live," "Obvious Child," "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On," and as the wooooorst sister on "Parks and Recreation," recently split from husband Dean Fleischer-Camp and has moved on with Captain America himself, Chris Evans.
That's the news from "a source" to Us Weekly, anyway, and fans have responded with pleasant surprise (when they're not crying).
The actors, both 34, reportedly connected while filming the upcoming movie "Gifted." They

Film director Daniel Adams and Nashville music producer Michael Flanders have teamed up to create Spiderworx Media, a $50 million fund to produce theatrical motion pictures over the next several years.
“An L.A. Minute,” co-written by Adams and former National Lampoon and High Times editor-in-chief, Larry “Ratso” Sloman, will be Adams’ first film to under the partnership. The pic is a “satirical look at fame, success, the star-making machinery and the karma that attaches to all those who worship at the altar of celebrity,” according to Adams.
Adams served 21 months in Massachusetts state prison for inflating expenses to obtain production tax credits on “The Lightkeepers,” starring Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner, and “The Golden Boys,” starring David Carradine. He was released in 2013.

People's annual Most Beautiful People issue arrives this week, and the cover star for 2016 is nothing short of perfect: Jennifer Aniston! The Mother's Day actress previously earned the title of "World's Most Beautiful Woman" in 2004, and other past winners include Sandra Bullock in 2015, as well as Lupita Nyong'o, Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Julia Roberts. Jen looks absolutely radiant on the cover, dressed in Spring florals and sporting her signature bright smile, and was "very, very flattered" when People told her the news. "I thought, 'Oh my God,'" she said to the magazine. "There was this sort of very excited, teenage-y kind of moment." In addition to crediting husband Justin Theroux for bringing joy to her life by making her laugh and being "so interesting," Jennifer eloquently summed up what beauty means to her. "Inner confidence. Peace. Kindness. Honesty. A life well-lived. Taking on challenges and not feeling »

Jennifer Aniston is still "Friends" with People magazine. They just named her the World's Most Beautiful Woman and popped her on the cover of their annual edition.
The 47-year-old actress told People she was "very, very flattered" when she was told she was chosen. "I thought, 'Oh my God.' There was this sort of very excited, teenage-y kind of moment."
Because the issue is about beauty -- inner and outer -- she talked about starting to take care of her body early in her career, after an agent told her she was rejected for a part for being "too chubby." (Pause to deep sigh for a world where Jennifer Aniston was ever too chubby for anything.) Here's how Aniston reacted to that diss: "I was like, 'What?!' But my diet was terrible. Milk shakes and French fries with gravy [laughs]. It was a good thing to start paying attention. »

Murtada here. Graham Norton always manages to coax stories out of his visiting guests that somehow they never divulge on this side of the Atlantic.This week his guests included Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, selling Florence Foster Jenkins. Norton brings up a recent interview in which Grant claimed all his co-stars hated him. Julianne Moore, Rachel Weisz, Emma Thompson, Sandra Bullock and Drew Barrymore are name checked. Clearly the Music and Lyrics (2007) set was not a happy one as this is what Grant said about Barrymore:
She made the mistake of giving me notes. How would you take that?
Meryl's response is perfect and gets the biggest laugh. Deservedly. She knows how to land a line!

In an episode of The Graham Norton Show, the actor, along with his Florence Foster Jenkins costar Meryl Streep, recalls which of his leading ladies ... well, dislike him.

"I think it was regrettable," Grant, 55, responds with a smirk. Then, Norton continues listing some memorable and not-so-memorable quotes that Grant has said throughout the years.
