Julia Roberts insists marriage hasn't really changed George Clooney. The Ocean's Eleven co-stars recently wrapped Money Monster, a dramatic thriller directed by Jodie Foster. Roberts didn't hesitate one bit when I asked her last night at the premiere of Secret in Their Eyes if Clooney has "mellowed" since he and Amal Clooney tied the knot. "No!' she said. "When you get married, you don't change. You just become the evolved fabulous person of who you are. That's what your person does—you just create the extreme wonderful insides." Then Roberts flashed her signature smile. "That's really sappy." Clooney is legendary in Hollywood »

Sandra Bullock returns to the big screen this weekend with Our Brand Is Crisis, portraying a political campaign strategist, a role that was originally written for her Gravity co-star George Clooney. The actor stayed on to produce that film, and now they are re-teaming for another gender-swapping project, with Sandra Bullock attached to take on George Clooney's lead role in an all-female remake of his 2001 hit Ocean's Eleven. The Playlist reports that this Ocean's Eleven reboot has been in the works for over a year, with Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) signing on to direct.
The project reportedly came together last fall, originated by Ocean's Eleven star George Clooney, director Steven Soderbergh and producer Jerry Weintraub. The trio have enlisted screenwriter Olivia Milch (Queen & Country) to tackle the script, which she has been working on for several months. There was speculation the project might have been delayed, after producer »
Sandra Bullock's long-rumored female Ocean's Eleven seems to be a go, which means Hollywood will finally get to see what happens when you make a movie with more than four good female roles. Will the world end? Probably not, which means we've got time to think up our dream cast for this intriguing idea. Put on some jazzy music, and let's do this thing!Sandra Bullock is George Clooney. This would be obvious even if Bullock weren't producing the dang thing. Two Oscar winners who represent all that is good and pure about mainstream American culture. You love them. Your mother loves them. Your grandma loves them. And they love each other! Book it. Angelina Jolie is Brad Pitt. The casting of Brad Pitt as Rusty Ryan was Ocean's' real coup. Anyone can surround George Clooney with a crew of B-listers, but when you can pay someone who's arguably »

A new version of Ocean's Eleven is on its way, reportedly with Sandra Bullock ready to lead an all-female cast, according to The Playlist. Academy Award-nominated Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) is in line to direct. The project was hatched in late 2014 by George Clooney, director Steven Soderbergh, and producer Jerry Weintraub, who worked together on 2001's Ocean's Eleven and its two sequels, Ocean's Twelve (2004) and Ocean's Thirteen (2007). The origins of the series date back to 1960, when Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. led the so-called "Rat Pack," including Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop, in a lighthearted criminal adventure. The 21st century trilogy featured Clooney and Brad Pitt leading a new gang of criminals...

Sandra Bullock has a new movie out this weekend called "Our Brand is Crisis," and I'm terrified you won't go see it. Who cares if it's good? It's a Sandy vehicle, and Sandy vehicles should be driven. Yes, she will soon star in an "Ocean's 11" reboot and it'll probably own our weary, Leigh Anne Tuohy-sized hearts, but I can't stand when Ms. Bullock has a career stumble. Let's remember why she rules. »

Sandra Bullock will play the lead in an upcoming remake of "Ocean's Eleven' with an all-female cast, directed by Gary Ross ("the Hunger Games") from a script by Olivia Milch ("Little Women"), continuing her streak of stepping into roles originally conceived for men—as she does currently in "Our Brand Is Crisis." Read More: "Sandra Bullock Fights for Gender Equality with 'Our Brand Is Crisis'" As The Playlist reports, the project originated with the late producer Jerry Weintraub, "Ocean's" director Steven Soderbergh, and Danny Ocean himself, George Clooney. (He developed "Our Brand Is Crisis" as a possible directing gig.) Since the new film won't get rolling in earnest until after Ross' "Free State of Jones," with Matthew McConaughey, bows next May, we got to thinking about who we'd like to see fill the other roles in Bullock's "Eleven." It's a dream cast, of course (even Warren Buffett »

Hi, everyone. Coco here, with a fantastic opportunity for all agents and casting directors out there...
Indiewire reports an Ocean's Eleven sequel is in the works, and that it will feature an all-female caper crew. Clooney is producing, Olivia Milch (Little Women) is writing, and Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Hunger Games) is directing. The biggest news for Actressexuals: Sandra Bullock has landed the Danny Ocean role.
Bullock's star-persona is a little goofier than Clooney's ultra-suave schtick, but she seems like a great choice nonetheless. Very few performers ooze of charisma as strongly as Bullock. I mean, I still find myself thinking of her speaking "Chinese" at the Oscars from time to time.
The bigger question, though, is what other wonderful actresses should join her and her team of madcap con artists. Here are some options:
In news that is sure to induce more than a few groans and eye rolls comes word from The Playlist that The Hunger Games and Seabiscuit director Gary Ross has been set to helm an all-female Ocean's Eleven movie, with Sandra Bullock in the lead. Olivia Milch (Queen & Country, Little Women) has turned in a draft of the script, and apparently late producer Jerry Weintraub, Ocean's director... Read More »

While we generally feel a bit of malaise any time Hollywood announces a new reboot, we have to say that this one sounds pretty awesome: Sandra Bullock is reportedly set to play the lead in a new, all-female "Ocean's Eleven" flick.
The Playlist reports that this film is inspired by the George Clooney-starring trilogy from the early 2000s (a reboot itself of the original 1960 Rat Pack version), and Bullock will step into Clooney's ringleader role, this time heading up a team of women. No concrete plot has been revealed just yet, though according to The Playlist, a draft from screenwriter Olivia Milch ("Queen & Country," "Little Women") has already been delivered.
"It's unclear how directly connected (or not) this remake/reboot/sequel/spinoff will be to the [Steven] Soderbergh pictures," The Playlist reports, "but everyone is keen on this new 'Ocean's' project, and sources tell us Clooney may even cameo as Danny Ocean. »

Bullock will take on the position her former "Gravity" co-star George Clooney played in the 2001 incarnation (itself a remake of the 1960 Rat Pack movie). Clooney doesn't have much of an issue with the idea it would seem as he's slated to produce the film according to the report.
"Ocean's 11" star Clooney, director Steven Soderbergh, and producer Jerry Weintraub got the ball rolling on this film last year, but things hit a snag when Weintraub passed away. Now though, it's back on track with Olivia Milch ("Queen & Country," "Little Women") writing the screenplay.
What form this will take - a remake, prequel, spin-off, reimagining - is unclear but the report indicates Clooney could cameo as Danny Ocean which would indicate it's likely in the same »

Late producer Jerry Weintraub, director Steven Soderbergh, and the franchise's main star George Clooney backed the project last year, and according to The Playlist, everything is definitely moving ahead.
Bullock, meanwhile, currently stars in political drama Our Brand Is Crisis, which is released in the Us today (October 30) and on January 22 in the UK.
Watch the trailer for Our Brand Is Crisis below: »
The Playlist learned that a new "Ocean's Eleven" movie is in the works with an all-female cast. Already on board is Sandra Bullock and "The Hunger Games" director Gary Ross. The project has been in the works for a year or two and initiated by George Clooney, producer Jerry Weintraub, director Steven Soderbergh. Olivia Milch (Little Women) has been working on the screenplay. The new "Ocean's Eleven" movie is expected to be Ross' next movie after he finishes "The Free State of Jones," starring Matthew McConaughey. Plot details are being kept a secret. »
The Ocean’s films may have been sizeable box office successes in the last decade, but the modern trilogy (the original being a remake of a not very good Rat Pack movie) isn’t one that too many people natter about. Perhaps that’s down to the fact that the sequels – especially Ocean’s 12 – were nowhere near as strong as the original. But for whatever reason, there hadn’t been a clamouring for Ocean’s 14 that we could detect.
However, there is now a new Ocean’s movie on the way, only this time, the cast is going to be dominated by women rather than men.
The movie has reportedly been under discussion for a good year so far apparently, although the death of producer Jerry Weintraub earlier in 2015 may have potentially derailed it. »
The burgeoning creative partnership between George Clooney and Sandra Bullock that yielded this weekend's "Our Brand Is Crisis" (in which Bullock stars, Clooney produces, and David Gordon Green directs), is set to kick up a notch in the near future. A new "Ocean's Eleven" film is in the works, only this time, in line with the recent Hollywood gender-swapping trend, it's due to feature an all female line-up, with Bullock in the lead, and Gary Ross ("The Hunger Games," "Seabiscuit," "Pleasantville") directing. The project was initiated last year by the power trio of late producer Jerry Weintraub, ‘Ocean’s’ trilogy director Steven Soderbergh, and the franchise's main star, Clooney. Olivia Milch (“Queen & Country,” “Little Women”), who has become a go-to screenwriter for female-centric projects, has been working on the screenplay for months. A project we’ve been tracking for much of the year, the female ‘Ocean’s’ »

This thing that James Corden does where he invites famous celebs with big, memorable filmographies to recreate their entire careers in eight minutes is pretty genius. Not just because it's fun watching these folks briefly inhabit their old roles, but also because it's a tremendous feat to pull off in such a short amount of time with costume changes and physical sets and the whole what-to-do. Corden's latest bit stars Matt Damon -- and in the span of eight minutes, they take us through a slew of Damon movies. From School Ties to Good Will Hunting to Ocean's 11 to Rounders to The Martian, if it's a popular Matt Damon movie, it's in here. Check it out below. Except there's one Matt Damon movie that's not in here, and it might feature...

The Late Late Show with James Corden has only been on the air for just over six months, but in that short amount of time, new host James Corden has given movie fans a new reason to tune in, aside from interviews with the biggest stars. The host has a running segment entitled Role Call, where his guests such as Tom Hanks and Arnold Schwarzenegger act out all of their biggest hits (and some of their flops) in a short amount of time. Last night, Matt Damon stopped by the late night program to promote his sci-fi drama The Martian, in theaters October 2, where he became the latest star to act out his entire film career in just eight short minutes.
It’s a common complaint within Silicon Valley that science fiction makes the general public fear technology. But what if it’s just a matter of accuracy? For decades, movies and TV have made tech jobs look like a lot of things: sexy, dark, mysterious, cool, widely efficient, even magic. Of course, people actually in tech know the reality is anything but glamorous — so we decided to ask them which laughable, sometimes irritating myths they’d like to bust about their own professions. Here’s hoping screenwriters will take note. (And before you ask, we left facial-recognition software off the list because it’s totally real and totally works. Gulp.)The Technique: “Cleaning Up” Security FootageThe Myth: “Magnifying/enhancing” recordings can show police a detailed shot of a perp’s face.As Seen In: Ocean's Eleven, NCISThe Expert: Trevor Newton, sales director for Tyco Security, a company that makes surveillance »
