Ryan Gosling is in talks to join Margot Robbie in the Ocean’s Eleven reboot.
According to Variety, the 41-year-old actor has been in discussions about reuniting with his Barbie co-star Margot, 32, for Jay Roach’s upcoming Warner Bros movie prequel.
Reports first surfaced in May that there was a prequel in the works with Warner Brothers. However, at the time the project hadn’t been officially greenlit. Further speculation indicated that a Spring 2023 production date was being considered.
With the project being a go now, Robbie is set to produce the movie with her LuckyChap production company. Tom Ackerley and Michelle Graham will also produce, while Gary Ross, Olivia Milch and Josey McNamara will executive produce.
Ocean’s Eleven, starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt, was a heist comedy about con artists who stole millions from a Las Vegas Casino. And in 2018, Sandra Bullock led an all-female starring cast for a reboot, Ocean’s Eight.
The upcoming prequel is expected to take place in 1960s Europe and Carrie Solomon is working on the screenplay.
