Ocean's 14 set to happen with Clooney, Pitt and Damon all returning
George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon have all reportedly agreed to return for a new entry in the Ocean's 11 franchise.
The original Ocean's 11, released in 1960, starred five of the Rat Pack; Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop.
In 2001, a reboot was released and it proved to be one of the most star-studded movies of the noughties, with Clooney leading the cast as Danny Ocean alongside Pitt, Julia Roberts, Damon, Elliott Gould, Andy Garcia, Carl Reiner, Bernie Mac, Don Cheadle and Casey Affleck among others.
It was a huge critical and commercial success, grossing $450 million worldwide from a budget of $85m.
Two sequels were produced, Ocean's 12 and Ocean's 13 before the franchise was revamped with an all-female crew in 2016 with Ocean's 8.
Now, The Sun reports that Ocean's 14 could be made even though the major stars previously insisted that Ocean's 13 would be their last appearance in the series.
“Rumours of a film starring George, Brad and Matt have swirled for years but the timing was off and their jam-packed schedules meant that it was just not possible,” a source said.
“Finally the right team for the job has come together in a bid to make it a huge success and the main stars thought it would be good fun to revisit.
“The franchise is hugely popular and the brilliant storyline was an opportunity that was too good to miss.”
Ocean's 11 prequel
Ryan Gosling is reportedly in talks to star in a prequel to Ocean's 11 alongside Margot Robbie.
The pair are currently working on the upcoming Barbie movie together, with Robbie playing the title character and Gosling as Ken.
The Hollywood Reporter previously detailed how Warner Bros. are hoping to reboot the Ocean's 11 franchise with Robbie as the star.
Though the project is yet to be fully greenlit, it is believed Robbie will star in the new movie as well as produce via her production company LuckyChap, which she shares with husband Tom Ackerley.
Jay Roach, most famous for his work on the Austin Powers trilogy and Meet the Parents, is slated to direct, and he will also receive a production credit alongside Delirious Media's Michelle Graham.
The script has been penned by Carrie Solomon, and although plot details are naturally being kept under wraps for now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the movie will primarily take place in Europe in the 1960s.
