The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to join Margot Robbie in the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ reboot film for Warner Bros. The new movie will be helmed by Jay Roach, with Robbie producing with Tom Ackerley and Michelle Graham. Details are being kept under wraps, but rumors say it will be an original Ocean’s Eleven tale that is set in Europe in the 1960s. The project has not been greenlit, but is expected to begin production in Spring 2023.
The Ocean’s Eleven franchise was launched in 2001 when Steven Soderbergh directed the comedy featuring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon and others. That remake of the 1960 Rat Pack movie turned into a successful franchise, with the first movie earning over $450 million worldwide theatrically and two more installments being released in 2004 and 2007. The franchise returned in 2018 with Ocean’s 8, a female-led spinoff featuring Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter and Rihanna.
Gosling also currently teaming up with Robbie on the live-action Warner Bros. film Barbie. The actor also co-stars with Emily Blunt in director David Leitch’s stuntman action-drama The Fall Guy for Universal Pics.
