Exclusive: UPDATE Elizabeth Banks, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling Joining Sandra Bullock “Oceans 11” Project

Share

UPDATE Now hearing that Elizabeth Banks is likely joining the group.

Confirmed: Cate Blanchett will join Sandra Bullock in the female reboot of Oceans Eleven.

I’ve also heard that director Gary Ross has locked up Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling for the heist thriller.

The new Oceans will shoot here in New York early next year maybe right after Blanchett is done on Broadway. Blanchett’s involvement was rumored first on website The Playlist.

P.S. Doesn’t sound like Jennifer Lawrence is in this film. But wouldn’t Paula Patton be cool? Or Jessica Chastain?
