Cate Blanchett Wants In on the All-Female ‘Oceans’s Eleven’ Film

Just f**k me up.

I love everything about Cate Blanchett. She’s a brilliant actor. She’s beautiful. If she murdered me I would die happy. I’m so here for this.

From The Playlist:

You’ll remember last fall we broke the news: Sandra Bullock would be starring in an all-female “Ocean’s Eleven” film directed by Gary Ross (“The Hunger Games,” “Seabiscuit”). The project was concocted by Ross, who brought the idea to original ‘Ocean’s’ franchise director Steven Soderbergh. He in turn brought it to the late producer Jerry Weintraub and with Bullock in tow, the team was off and running (though the project was secretly in existence months before we reported it).

Please let this be real. Let her be in. Honestly, I don’t care about anyone else. Cast a bunch of potted plants. I would watch Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and some daffodils pull a heist.

Sources close to the project tell The Playlist that “Carol” star Cate Blanchett is currently in talks to join the film that is currently affectionately known as “Ocean’s Ocho” by the key creatives, which of course means eight principal thieves pulling off a heist, not eleven.

Is it because finding eleven women to star in one movie is too much work for the people behind it? I mean, I honestly remember like three of the eleven people in the original so I won’t miss them.

Should the deal close, Blanchett would be playing the Brad Pitt role next to Bullock’s Clooney character at least as far as the outline goes. But neither actress is playing a female version of those characters. Instead, the roles are loosely modeled after the friendship/partnership dynamic established in the Soderbergh films.

This film is due to shoot this fall or winter.

My body is ready.
