I mean, if we already have a Ghostbusters reboot with a whole female cast, why not have Sandra Bullock run her own casino heist?
Now we all loved the original. And I mean the original, with the Rat Pack of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. (in racist undertones) all robbing a casino. And of course, we liked the remake that George Clooney starred in and made with Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.
So obviously it’s time for the female rat pack to emerge. The film, which Clooney will produce, will have Gary Ross of The Hunger Games directing. Over a year in the works, the project is finally getting made, all with Olivia Milch (known for Queen & Country) as the screenwriter, all when Clooney, Steven Soderbergh and Jerry Weintraub came together last fall. And while they had a mild set back with Weintraub’s death earlier this summer, the film is still going on full speed ahead.
The all new female cast film is set to be released in 2017, and this still leaves up for question as to how close the script will be towards the 2001 Clooney film, or what ten other women will star in the film.
