Margot Robbie is set to star in and produce a new ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ film.
The 31-year-old actress is set to be directed by Jay Roach, with whom she previously collaborated on 2019’s ‘Bombshell’. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie will produce the upcoming film alongside Tom Ackerley, her producing partner at LuckyChap. Carrie Solomon penned the screenplay for the film, and while details are still largely under wraps, the film is set to take place in 1960s Europe.
LuckyChap’s Gary Ross, Olivia Milch and Josey McNamara are slated to executive produce. However, insiders added to the publication that the film has not yet been given the green light, but hopes production will begin in spring 2023.
The ‘Ocean’s’ film series has spawned three films: 2001’s ‘Ocean’s Eleven’, 2004’s ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ and 2007’s ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’. The film series was inspired by the 1960 film ‘Ocean’s 11’ in which Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop starred. An all-female spin-off, ‘Ocean’s Eight’, hit theaters in 2018.
Robbie is currently filming the film ‘Barbie’ in which she plays the eponymous Mattel doll, while Ryan Gosling portrays Barbie’s boyfriend Ken.
