Actress Jennifer Lawrence is among the names shortlisted for an upcoming reboot of 2001 heist comedy “Ocean’s Eleven”, which starred George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
If she gets on board, the 25-year-old actress will star opposite Sandra Bullock and reunite with “The Hunger Games” director Gary Ross in the film touted as ‘female centric’, reported Aceshowbiz.
Bullock, 51, has been courted to lead the pack in the Warner Bros movie while Lawrence is touted to play Bullock’s right-hand woman.
Beside directing and producing, Ross is writing the screenplay with “Queen & Country” scribe Olivia Milch.
The plot is currently unknown but it’s expected to center on Bullock as Danny Ocean’s sister.
Rumour has it, the untitled Ocean’s Eleven project will be more of a spin-off than a reboot, thus making it possible for the cast from the Steven Soderbergh-directed film to make an appearance.
The project itself reportedly was the brainchild of Soderbergh, late Ocean’s producer Jerry Weintraub and the 2001 film original cast Clooney.
Filming is scheduled to start next fall but no release date is announced yet.
