"Ocean's Eleven": Margot Robbie Plays Lead Role in Remake

The film is to be set in the 1960s

The "Ocean's" series is still one of the best heist movies of all time. But did you know that the film series did not start with George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon in 2001, but back in the 60s? At that time, the movie had an equally famous cast. The so-called Rat Pack played the three leading roles, namely none other than Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.

Now a new "Ocean's Eleven" was announced a couple of days ago, and it is supposed to return to the origins of the movie series. As stated by the Hollywood Reporter, the film is set in the 1960s somewhere in Europe. Allegedly, the movie is not related to the previous parts and could therefore be a sort of remake. The main role has also already been cast: Margot Robbie is said to act not only as the main character, but also as a producer. Further details are still scarce, but it seems likely that the original 1960 film and the "Ocean's Eleven" remake are somehow connected: In Las Vegas, Danny Ocean and his team go on a foray; and in Europe, Margot Robbie's character and her colleagues. However, this has not been confirmed yet, which is why we can only make assumptions about it at this point in time.

In charge of directing is "Austin Powers" director Jay Roach. The script will be written by newcomer Carrie Solomon. Shooting of the Warner Bros. film is scheduled to start at the beginning of next year, which is why a release before 2024 is considered unlikely.
