The new "Ocean's 11" prequel will begin filming by the end of the month, setting the stage for a new story featuring some of the world's biggest thieves.

While there are not many details available regarding what the movie will be about, it has been confirmed that Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling will be starring in it, bringing their chemistry to a project completely different from what they have worked on before.

The upcoming movie will serve as a prequel to the already-established franchise, and won't be a reboot taking place in a different world. That means that the 2001 classic starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts will still take place at some point in the continuity after the prequel. There is a possibility for the story to be unrelated to what came before while remaining part of the continuity, but that will depend on what Warner Bros. is planning for the future of the franchise.

The last time the franchise was seen on the big screen was during 2018's "Ocean's 8", the installment where Sandra Bullock led a team that featured only women among its ranks. The plan was simple: To infiltrate the Met Gala and steal a very expensive necklace.

Before Gosling and Robbie can be seen in the heist movie, the pair will appear in Greta Gerwig's latest movie "Barbie", coming to theatres on July 21.

Robbie is set to star as the iconic doll, who lives in a world where everything is wonderful, lovely, and mostly pink. Everything will change one fateful day when Barbie will start to wonder if she can die and what that would mean for her future. Gosling will play Ken, her loving partner who is ready to join her in her quest for answers regarding the meaning of life.
