Gary Ross Ocean's 8 Interview

Gary Ross, director of Pleasantville and The Hunger Games, assembled a killer cast of kickass women to relaunch the Ocean’s 11 franchise. The result is Ocean’s 8, a new heist movie that doesn’t reboot the series, but rather branches off from it to create a whole new story. Ross and co-writer Olivia Milch took the world created by Steven Soderbergh in his Ocean‘s films, and rebranded it with a new perspective.

Below, Ross talks about the origin of Ocean’s 8, and how the impressive cast helped sell the studio on the concept.

Five years ago, Steven Soderbergh directed what he’d said would be his cinematic swan song. Side Effects, ostensibly about a woman who reacts quite poorly to some medication she was prescribed by a sweaty British doctor, was a nasty piece of work that featured one of Jude Law’s more underrated performances. If Side Effects was really Soderbergh’s last feature, it would’ve been a fine note on which to exit. Instead, last summer, the auteur returned with the goofy and charming Logan Lucky.
