Clooney and Bullock spent a lot of time working together on Gravity, and the role she plays in Our Band Is Crisis was originally written for him, so there’s precedent for this happening!
Not much is known about the direction this Ocean’s Eleven reboot will take other than the fact that the team will consist of all women. This is becoming a growing trend in Hollywood (take the Ghostbusters reboot on the way next year for example), but the changes being made to this franchise are likely to be less controversial than what Paul Feig has done.
That controversy obviously feels wholly unnecessary, but whatever was done with that beloved property was always going to lead to a lot of grumbling. Ocean’s Eleven on the other hand doesn’t really have that problem, especially after two disappointing sequels. Interestingly, The Playlist adds that Clooney may even make a cameo as Danny Ocean!
