‘Ocean’s Eight’: Helena Bonham Carter Says Script Is Hilarious, ‘Great For Women’

29 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the past few months casting rumors have been circulating about the all-female “Ocean’s Eleven” spin-off, “Ocean’s Eight.” Now, Helena Bonham Carter, rumored to be a part of the Gary Ross-directed film, is speaking out.

“It’s a really good script — but I still don’t know if I’m going to be in it,” the actress told Entertainment Weekly. “But it’s a great script, and it’s great for women. Just hilarious.”

The screenplay is penned by Olivia Milch and according to reports, it’s a continuation of the George Clooney-led franchise, with Sandra Bullock playing Danny Ocean’s ex-con sister. Cate Blanchett, who will be the equivalent of Brad Pitt’s Rusty, is supposedly her right-hand woman. The storyline is that they will form a team to steal a necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a villainous gallery owner. Elizabeth Banks »

Like Tom Hanks (Cast Away), Sandra Bullock (Gravity) and husband Ryan Reynolds (Buried) before her, The Shallows' Blake Lively is joining the relatively small group of actors who have appeared alone on screen for the majority of a movie. "It was super intimidating, which is one of the reasons I wanted to do it," Lively told People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle in the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview.

Elizabeth Banks Was Considered “Too Old” For Mary-Jane Role In 2002’s Spider-Man

22 June 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before appearing as Betty Brant in Sam Raimi’s trilogy, Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks has revealed that she originally auditioned for the Mary-Jane role in Spider-Man, only to be turned down because she was considered “too old” for the part.

That’s according to Banks herself, who told Glamour magazine that despite being 28 at the time – making her only 16 months older than lead star Tobey Maguire – it was ultimately Kirsten Dunst that landed the coveted role of Mary-Jane Watson across Raimi’s superhero series.

“I screen-tested for the role of Mary-Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movie, opposite Tobey Maguire … Tobey and I are basically the same age and I was told I was too old to play her. I’m like, ‘Oh, Ok, that’s what I’ve signed up for’.”

Before Spy was released into theaters, writer-director Paul Feig already knew he wanted to make a sequel, and what it would be about. The director had hoped to turn The Heat into a franchise–something Sandra Bullock wasn’t onboard with–but it looks like he may get his wish with a Spy 2. The director of this summer’s Ghostbusters reboot is adamant about making the sequel, which would involve […]

Gary Ross talks female-led Ocean’s Eleven spinoff, reveals title as Ocean’s Eight

19 June 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past couple of months we’ve heard plenty of casting rumours for the upcoming female-led Ocean’s Eleven spinoff. While director Gary Ross isn’t quite ready to confirm any names, he has revealed to Slash Film that the project will be titled Ocean’s Eight, and he also talked a little about how the project will compare to Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy.

“I think it’s a pretty similar tone. You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation. He’s a producer on the movie.

Cinema Gadfly – Episode 21 – The Vanishing

My guest for this month is Herb van der Poll, and he’s joined me to discuss the film I chose for him, the 1988 Dutch–French film The Vanishing. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

The director, George Sluizer, didn’t really direct much else besides this film and its remake The soundtrack definitely has a Tears for Fears vibe to it, which is 100% ok with me Herb checked with his Dutch parents to make sure we pronounced Spoorloos correctly Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu is basically perfect as the villain in this film If you enjoy this film, you’d probably also love Alfred Hitchock’s The Lady Vanishes The actress who plays the second girlfriend Lieneke, Gwen Eckhaus, was randomly in a television series in the Netherlands called Spoorloos verdwenen, which I assume is unrelated Getting a compliment on your film from Stanley Kubrick is a big »

‘Ocean’s 11’ reboot is actually titled Ocean’s 8, says director

15 June 2016 10:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director Gary Ross

Director Gary Ross has been speaking with /Film about the Ocean’s 11 reboot that he’s currently working, and has confirmed that the movie will actually be called Ocean’s 8. The reboot will be led by Sandra Bullock, with the likes of Elizabeth Banks, Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett and Mindy Kaling also rumoured to be amongst the new team.

Speaking with the website, Ross said:

“I think it’s a pretty similar tone”, he explained. “You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation”.

Danny Ocean’s sister? So, we now know that it will definitely be continuation. But what differences should we expect to see between the new film and the three films that preceded it wit George Clooney in the lead.

“We’re different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I’m drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I’m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I’m thrilled and honoured to be extending it. It’s really fun to work with.”

Shooting is expected to kick off this year for a late 2017/ early 2018 release.

More as we get it.

Director Gary Ross reveals that Ocean's 8 is going to keep the tone of the recent trilogy, an

Director Gary Ross is putting the finishing touches to his new film, Free State Of Jones. And in an interview to promote the movie, talk has turned to his next project, the reboot of sorts of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s 11 trilogy.

The new movie has a cast that’s reported to star Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth Banks, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling. Jennifer Lawrence has been linked too, but her involvement is very much up in the air, given her crowded schedule.

So what should we expect from the new movie? Well, firstly, a new name. Ross has confirmed that the title of it will be Ocean’s 8.

“I think it’s a pretty similar tone”, he added. “You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation”.

That ties into rumours that the movie is more of a follow-on than anything.

“We’re different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I’m drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I’m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I’m thrilled and honoured to be extending it. It’s really fun to work with”, Ross added.

Ocean’s 8 is due to start filming before the end of the year. A release before the end of 2017 is a possibility…

Gary Ross Talks "Ocean's Eight" Tone

15 June 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Out doing promotion for "Free State of Jones," filmmaker Gary Ross was asked by Slashfilm about his next project, one that has made many headlines of late.

Confirming that the title is "Ocean's Eight" for now, he also re-affirms that this upcoming all-female cast spin-off of the "Ocean's Eleven" films is a continuation of the tone that Steven Soderbergh established in the trilogy:

"I think it's a pretty similar tone. You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren't. I don't think he would've wanted anyone to do it if we weren't. This is very much an extension and a continuation. He's a producer on the movie.

In one way or another, this has been a 20-year conversation between Steven and I, collaborating in ways the whole world doesn't know about: I helped him on the previous Ocean's Eleven films; he shot second unit on The Hunger Games; I've done Adr lines for him; and he reads all my scripts. It's a very long, ongoing collaboration. This, I think, is a very seamless process.

We're different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I'm drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I'm in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I'm thrilled and honored to be extending it."

The likes of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Elizabeth Banks have all been linked to the project which still has not set production dates as yet. »

Ocean's Eleven All-Female Spinoff Gets Titled Ocean's Eight

15 June 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that the cast of Sandra Bullock's female reboot of Ocean's Eleven has added Elizabeth Banks, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling. That report also teased that the project's working title was Ocean's Ocho, since the story will center on eight female thieves, but it seems that title wasn't quite accurate. While doing press for his new film The Free State of Jones, director Gary Ross confirmed that the title is actually Ocean's Eight, and that Ocean's Ocho was just a nickname for the project.

This project has been secretly in development over the past few years, with Ocean's Eleven director Steven Soderbergh, star George Clooney and producer Jerry Weintraub bringing aboard Olivia Milch (Town & Country) to write the script. Gary Ross revealed to SlashFilm that this project is not simply a female reboot, but a continuation of Steven Soderbergh's trilogy. Here's what Gary Ross had to say below, discussing how both he and Steven Soderbergh have collaborated on each other's projects over the years, and how Ocean's Eight will be similar in tone to Ocean's Eleven.

"I think it's a pretty similar tone. You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren't. I don't think he would've wanted anyone to do it if we weren't. This is very much an extension and a continuation. He's a producer on the movie. In one way or another, this has been a 20-year conversation between Steven and I, collaborating in ways the whole world doesn't know about: I helped him on the previous Ocean's Eleven films; he shot second unit on The Hunger Games; I've done Adr lines for him; and he reads all my scripts. It's a very long, ongoing collaboration. This, I think, is a very seamless process. We're different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I'm drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I'm in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I'm thrilled and honored to be extending it. It's really fun to work with."

The director wouldn't confirm any of the cast members that have been previously reported, but he did joke that he'd "break the Internet" if they announced the cast right now. He also didn't address rumors about the story, including reports that Sandra Bullock's character is actually the ex-con sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean from Steven Soderbergh's trilogy. The story reportedly centers on a group of eight thieves who plan on stealing an expensive necklace from the Met Ball, while framing a gallery owner for the crime.

While no other character details have been confirmed, Cate Blanchett is reportedly playing the right-hand woman of Bullock's character, similar to Brad Pitt's Rusty in the Ocean's Eleven trilogy. Jennifer Lawrence was previously being eyed to reunite with The Hunger Games director Gary Ross on the project, but our report from last week claimed that she isn't involved at this time. We'll be sure to keep you posted with more on Ocean's Eight as soon as more details come in. »

Female-Led Ocean’s Eleven Reboot Pitched As A “Continuation” Of Original Trilogy

15 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More than a decade ago, Steven Soderbergh assembled an enviable lineup of Hollywood A-listers for Ocean’s Eleven, a rip-roaring and damn entertaining crime caper that went on to inspire two sequels of (arguably) diminishing returns.

Fast forward to 2016 and, with the project currently simmering in pre-production, The Hunger Games director Gary Ross has been tasked with capturing lightning in a bottle once again – and truth be told, he’s doing pretty well so far. Since first enlisting Sandra Bullock as the de facto lead, the director’s high-profile re-do has cast Thor: Ragnarok star Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and, more recently, Elizabeth Banks of Pitch Perfect fame.

It makes for quite the ensemble already, and in anticipation of Free State of Jones marching into theaters later this year, Ross sat down to discuss his pitch for the all-female Ocean’s Eleven, including how he views it as a continuation of Soderbergh’s stylish original trilogy.

I think it’s a pretty similar tone. You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation. He’s a producer on the movie. In one way or another, this has been a 20-year conversation between Steven and I, collaborating in ways the whole world doesn’t know about: I helped him on the previous Ocean’s Eleven films; he shot second unit on The Hunger Games; I’ve done Adr lines for him; and he reads all my scripts.

It’s a very long, ongoing collaboration. This, I think, is a very seamless process. We’re different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I’m drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I’m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I’m thrilled and honored to be extending it. It’s really fun to work with.

Still in the early stages of pre-production and bearing the codename Ocean’s Ocho, Gary Ross’ reimagining of Ocean’s Eleven still has a ways to go before stepping before the cameras at Warner Bros. Free State of Jones, meanwhile, hits theaters on June 24. »
