Jay Roach will helm the “Ocean’s” sequel for Warner Bros., which will reunite Gosling and Robbie following their upcoming performance in “Barbie.”
Ryan Gosling is negotiating to work with Margot Robbie in the Ocean’s Eleven remake for Warner Bros.
Jay Roach will direct the upcoming Ocean’s film, which Robbie will produce alongside Tom Ackerley and Michelle Graham. The script was written by Carrie Solomon, and while specifics are being withheld, it is known that it is an original Ocean’s Eleven story set in Europe in the 1960s. The first person to mention Ryan Gosling’s interest in the movie was Puck.
Gary Ross, Olivia Milch, and LuckyChap’s Josey McNamara are the executive producers. In addition, Village Roadshow is involved as an executive producer and could contribute financing.
Although the project has not been approved and is still in active development, a spring 2023 production is the target. Along with Warners, Gosling is working on the live-action Barbie with Robbie. He will next be seen with Emily Blunt in Universal’s The Fall Guy, an action-drama about a stuntman.
Steven Soderbergh’s fast-talking, chic heist comedy starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, and others established the Warners Ocean’s franchise in 2001. An unanticipated series evolved from what was originally intended to be a riff and informal remake of the 1960 Rat Pack film. Following the first film’s nearly $450 million worldwide box office haul, Soderbergh and company produced two additional star-studded sequels in 2004 and 2007, respectively. With Ocean’s 8, a female-focused spinoff starring Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, and Rihanna, the franchise made a comeback in 2018.
The budget is anticipated to be significantly higher than that of the previous four movies (the exact amount isn’t disclosed), which makes sense considering that the picture is set in the 1960s, which would naturally increase the cost of production.
As the director of the “Austin Powers” movies, Roach is no stranger to period projects. What remaining characters from the previous movies, if any, might be examined, is unknown. However, given their age, other people who might show there include younger incarnations of Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould), Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner), and possibly Gaspar LeMarque, the superthief played by Albert Finney. LeMarque is known for his legendary heists and was undoubtedly a figure in the 1960s.
