Warner Bros. is developing a new installment in the “Ocean’s Eleven” franchise.
Robbie is producing with Tom Ackerley, her partner at the LuckyChap production company. Roach is also producing, along with his executive at shingle Delirious Media, Michelle Graham.
Details on the script by Carrie Solomon are being kept in the vault, but it is known to be an original Ocean’s Eleven that is set in Europe in the 1960s.
Executive producing are Gary Ross, Olivia Milch, and LuckyChap’s Josey McNamara. Village Roadshow is also involved in an exec producer capacity and may also co-finance.
The project is in active development and is not greenlit, but the goal is to begin production in spring 2023.
The Ocean’s franchise launched in 2001 and had allocated $450 million worldwide.
Steven Soderbergh directed a fast-talking, stylish A-list heist comedy featuring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, and others.
Soderbergh and company churned out two more star-packed installments, in 2004 and 2007. The franchise returned in 2018 with “Ocean’s 8”, a female-centric spinoff led by Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, and Rihanna.
Robbie is currently shooting “Barbie” for the studio, portraying the iconic doll in a feature she is also producing.
The live-action movie is set to hit theaters on July 21, 2023. It will open against Christopher Nolan’s star-studded movie “Oppenheimer”.
