Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett will also be joined by Elizabeth Banks,

The new film in the Ocean’s 11 series is set to have a female-led ensemble this time around, with Sandra Bullock sitting aboard the production for some time. Jennifer Lawrence was rumoured too, until her crowded schedule counted her out. But Cate Blanchett was recruited not long after.

Now we have news of some more additions to the line-up this time around.

Elizabeth Banks, who recently stepped away from directing Pitch Perfect 3 (and has just finished filming the new Power Rangers movie) is signing up for the film. And there are some more new faces, too. Mindy Kaling and Helena Bonham Carter are also said to be joining the merry band of thieves this time around.

George Clooney had been reported to be making a return cameo as Danny Ocean, but that’s now unlikely. Shooting on the movie though is set begin before the end of the year, and Warner Bros already reportedly has its eye on future sequels to this one.

Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) is directing. We’d imagine a 2017 release isn’t out of the question here…
