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.”

By now you know it’s best to expect the unexpected when it comes to Steven Soderbergh, who recently emerged from semi-retirement (or Not Actual Retirement At All) to direct his first feature film since 2012. Even still, you probably never would have guessed that his latest project would star Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane and Katherine Heigl — okay, you might have guessed Driver since that guy is pretty much everywhere right now. But would you have predicted the casting of Hilary Swank? Probably not.

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.

This whole “will they or won’t they” thing between Daniel Craig and the James Bond franchise has become more ridiculous than Ross and Rachel. And now Craig is adding a bit more fuel to the Bond-fire as the actor is preparing to join the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, making his return to the world of 007 seem increasingly unlikely.

That ol’ grain of salt goes without saying (seriously, we need a better phrase) for the latest report regarding the female-centric Ocean’s 11 sequel / reboot. Jennifer Lawrence may be reuniting with Hunger Games director Gary Ross for the upcoming project, which is being produced by original Ocean’s trilogy director Steven Soderbergh.

Those rumors from a few months back have (thankfully) proven true, as it would appear that Steven Soderbergh is plotting his first feature film since 2013. Titled Logan Lucky, the heist film reunites Soderbergh with Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, and although Michael Shannon has unfortunately dropped out of the project, a few more actors have joined the lineup.

According to Steven Soderbergh, it may be a couple of years before we return to The Knick (or something like it), but in the meantime the semi-retired filmmaker is working on an ambitious HBO film with Sharon Stone, a potential return to the big screen, and producing three television series. We can add another project to his growing pile of work, as Soderbergh is set to reunite with Oscar-nominated Out of Sight scribe Scott Frank for a new Netflix series.
