When was the Ocean's Eleven prequel confirmed?

Fans of the Ocean's series will be pleased to hear in May 2022 the Hollywood Reporter confirmed Warner Bros would be heading into production on a prequel for Ocean's Eleven, which was released in 2001 and starred George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.

Margot Robbie was confirmed to be producing and starring in the film and will be producing alongside her husband Tom Ackerley.

Directing the new movie will be Jay Roach, who previously directed Margot in the 2019 film Bombshell. Carrie Solomon will be writing the script.

What is the Ocean's Eleven prequel about?

When the film was initially announced all that was mentioned about the plot was that it would be set in Europe in the 1960s.

Since then director Jay Roach has given a few more hints about what we can expect in the movie, telling Associated Press in June earlier this year, "It’s a heist movie still, but it’s very much a love story." He also cited Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief as an inspiration for the movie.

The Associated Press has now confirmed the movie will be set in Monte Carlo in 1962.

Who is starring in the Ocean's Eleven prequel?

Our favourite on-screen duo Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling are officially set to appear on-screen together after it was confirmed Ryan would also appear in the movie in August 2022.

Roach explained there was some initial hesitation about casting the two together, but knows there's an interest to see their partnership again.

"Originally there were some questions about whether it would be weird to have [Robbie and Gosling] together again after Barbie. But I think there’s just some pairings you want to see again and again," he said.

So far no other cast members have been announced, and given the film is a prequel to the 2001 film it's unlikely to star the cast members of the other Ocean's films.

We'll still keep our fingers crossed for a George Clooney cameo though.
