An Ocean’s 11 prequel that is in the works and according to producer Josey McNamara, Barbie co-stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling are on board to star in the film.
McNamara said in a recent interview with Games Radar at the BFI London Film Festival: “They’re wonderful together. The more projects even outside of that we can have them do would be amazing.” McNamara kept the premise of the film mum but teased that it would “do right by the franchise … I can’t really say much, but I think we’re just trying to do right by the franchise. I’m excited for people to experience it when it’s ready.”
The Ocean’s 11 prequel has been in “active development” since last year with Carrie Solomon penning the prequel set in 1960s Europe. The Ocean’s franchise was launched by Steven Soderbergh back in 2001, based on the 1960 ‘Rat Pack’ film. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts starred in the film that ended up grossing over $450M worldwide. The sequel film, Ocean’s Twelve, was released in 2004 followed by Ocean’s Thirteen in 2007. Ocean’s 8 was also released with a female-centric cast in 2018 that included Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkafina, Helena Bonham Carter and Rihanna.
