Will the Ocean’s 11 prequel with Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling honor the franchise?

Hey there! Get ready for some exciting news about the Ocean’s 11 prequel that’s got everyone talking. This time, it’s all about Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling reuniting on the big screen. And let me tell you, the producer is really hoping this movie does justice to the beloved franchise.

If you’ve been keeping up with the box office hits, you’ll know that Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling are currently on fire. Their recent movie, Barbie, has become the highest-grossing film of the year, raking in a whopping $1.4 billion. Talk about superstars!

Now, Margot Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, is taking on the challenge of creating an Ocean’s 11 prequel. Directed by Jay Roach and set in 1960s Europe, this film promises to bring a fresh perspective to the iconic heist series.

Although there hasn’t been much news about the project lately, producer Josey McNamara dropped a little tease while speaking to GamesRadar at the BFI London Film Festival. McNamara mentioned, “I can’t really say much, but I think we’re just trying to do right by the franchise. I’m excited for people to experience it when it’s ready.”

In addition, McNamara expressed hope for more collaborations between Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in the future. He said, “They’re wonderful together. The more projects, even outside of that, we can have them do would be amazing.”

Now, if you’re wondering about a potential Barbie sequel, given the success of the first film, you’re not alone. However, it turns out that Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, and director Greta Gerwig have yet to secure deals for Barbie 2. Rest assured, negotiations will surely take place, but we’ll likely have to wait until after the SAG-AFTRA strike concludes for any official news.

An interesting tidbit is that Margot Robbie actually predicted the success of Barbie. When she first pitched the project, she boldly stated that it would gross $1 billion. Robbie explained, “I think my pitch in the green-light meeting was the studios have prospered so much when they’re brave enough to pair a big idea with a visionary director. And then I gave a series of examples like, ‘dinosaurs and [Steven] Spielberg,’ that and that, that and that – pretty much naming anything that’s been incredible and made a ton of money for the studios over the years. And I was like, ‘And now you’ve got Barbie and Greta Gerwig.’ And I think I told them that it’d make a billion dollars, which maybe I was overselling, but we had a movie to make, okay?!”

So, there you have it! The Ocean’s 11 prequel is generating much excitement with the reunion of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. With high hopes from the producer and the duo’s undeniable chemistry, this film promises to be a thrilling addition to the franchise. Keep an eye out for updates, and let’s see what adventures await us in the world of Ocean’s 11.
