The franchise based on the classic film "Ocean's Eleven" is set to continue. Actor Ryan Gosling could now join the cast. The Canadian star has already demonstrated gangster qualities and comedic verve in earlier films.
Ryan Gosling is currently in negotiations for a role in Warner Bros' new "Ocean's Eleven" reboot. Accordingly, the 41-year-old Canadian actor is said to be seen alongside Margot Robbie. The 32-year-old was already committed to the film in May.
Details of Carrie Solomon's screenplay are still under wraps, but what is known is that this is an original Ocean's Eleven story. This takes place in Europe in the 1960s. The project is said to have not yet received the green light and is currently under development.
Warner's "Ocean's" franchise was launched in 2001. The first film starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Matt Damon. It grossed over $450 million worldwide. This was followed by two more sequels in 2004 and 2007 with top-class cast. In 2018, "Ocean's 8" was released, starring Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson and Rihanna.
Gosling has shown comedic talent in many films, including "Lars and the Women." At the same time he drove robbers and gangsters around in "Drive". So he could be predestined to get into the "Ocean" business.
