When Cate Blanchett was initially rumored for the Ocean’s Eleven spinoff, so too was the film’s working title: Ocean’s Ocho, which refers to the number of characters in the ensemble for Gary Ross’ female-fronted heist project. Ross himself has now officially confirmed the title for the film, which he’s been developing with original Ocean’s trilogy director Steven Soderbergh for some time now. And if you’re wondering just how similar Ross’ film will be to its predecessors, the answer is “pretty similar.”

We’re still not entirely sure what to call the new female-fronted Ocean’s Eleven movie, but whatever it is, it’s assembling some seriously great talent. In addition to Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence has been reportedly considering joining the lineup, while the latest name eyeing the sorta-sequel / Ocean’s-adjacent project is none other than the great Cate Blanchett — a name that would take this project from a curiosity to a must-see.

The Oscars aren’t until February, but we already have a contender for next award season, sort of, with the first trailer for Free State of Jones. From Hunger Games director Gary Ross, the new Civil War-era film stars Matthew McConaughey as a confederate soldier who turns against his southern brethren and attempts to establish a free state in Mississippi. Yes, it’s another installment in the “a white man will save us all” genre, but as usual, McConaughey is running on all cylinders.

Jennifer Lawrence is unstoppable. She's got two franchises and one Oscar under her belt, and she's ready to work again with the first 'Hunger Games' director Gary Ross on two upcoming projects, both adaptations of novels.

After last week's announcement that Gary Ross was out of 'The Hunger Games' sequel 'Catching Fire,' word came quickly that his demise was greatly exaggerated. But now we've heard that this matter has been settled and that Ross is out for good this time. I don't think there's a take back option here. Gary Ross is not directing 'Catching Fire.'

Yesterday, we reported that director Gary Ross was officially and definitively off the 'Hunger Games' sequel, 'Catching Fire.' Now, it's being reported that he's not out of the running quite yet. Now we can stop playing the "who will direct 'Catching Fire'?" game and go back to the "will Gary Ross return to Panem?" game.
