“We’ll break the cast right now and blow up the Internet,” director Gary Ross joked after we mentioned Ocean’s Eight to him. No, the Free State of Jones writer and director didn’t reveal to us the film’s entire ensemble cast, which has been previously reported or rumored to star Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Elizabeth Banks. One thing Ross did tell us, however, is that his film is very much a continuation of the tone Steven Soderbergh established with his incredibly entertaining Ocean’s remake trilogy.

UPDATE: Jennifer Lawrence’s representative has since denied this report, but that’s something that commonly happens before official announcements are made. There’s a chance this could still happen, but as we said, this story was just a rumor to begin with, so continue to take the possibility with a grain of salt.
Last fall we learned that Sandra Bullock had been lined up to star in a reboot of Ocean’s Eleven, the heist comedy starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts and more.

However, this reboot was going to change things up by making the entire team composed of women. Now Sandra Bullock may have a co-star being lined up.
The Hunger Games franchise star Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to be in the running for a role in the female Ocean’s Eleven cast. Even though Jennifer Lawrence is quite the in-demand actress and is probably eyed for tons of lead roles in Hollywood, this one actually makes sense due to who’s behind the camera. Read More »
With Oscar nominations less than two weeks away, one of the films that’s slowly been gaining momentum is Ben Affleck‘s fall hit The Town. The Boston-set heist movie was a hit with audiences and critics alike and, due to the fact that it’s been on DVD for a few weeks, it’s getting more buzz as a possible Best Picture nominee and for its supporting performances, most notably that of last year’s Best Actor nominee Jeremy Renner.
Being as it’s that time of year to not only give out awards, but also do top ten lists, Affleck – who not only starred in, but directed the film – put together his top eleven heist films of all time for The Daily Beast. It’s a very cool list that not only has a bunch of more modern films, but a few more obscure ones as well. Read More »
