2016 has been the year of the reboot—look no further than Ghostbusters, Fuller House and Star Trek—and as we approach summer, it appears that Hollywood is still scheming on this front.

Showbiz 411 reports that Ocean's Eleven is the next film to be reimagined, albeit with the all-female cast of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Mindy Kaling. Rumors are also swirling that Elizabeth Banks is set to join, while Jennifer Lawrence has ruled the film out due to scheduling conflicts. 

It was originally reported last year that Bullock would lead the cast. Hunger Games director Gary Ross is slated to helm the project alongside Queen and Country screenwriter Olivia Milch, Consequence of Sound notes. 

The flick is still very much in a nascent form and speculation is riding high. Among the conjecture is whether original protagonist Danny Ocean (George Clooney) will make a cameo—after all, both he and Ocean's Eleven director Steven Soderbergh are serving as executive producers. The Bullock-led film is apparently called Ocean's Ocho, and is a continuation of the original Ocean's trilogy, with the actress playing the ex-con sister of Danny Ocean. Filming begins in New York City early next year.
