Before long we will see Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling sharing the set once again.
After the blockbuster film Barbiewhich made up to $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office, Warner Bros. now hopes to double that with its next film: the prequel to Ocean’s 11. This is the feature film that will bring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling back together on the same set. The film will be the first “Ocean” project after that Ocean’s 8 starring Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett in 2018.
Very little is known about this project, apart from the fact that it will be a prequel and that it will involve Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, director Jay Roach and screenwriter Carrie Solomon.
“I can’t say much,” he told GamesRadar about the project Josey McNamara, executive of LuckyChap Entertainment and producer of the prequel to Ocean’s 11. “We’re trying to honor the franchise. I’m happy that people will be able to see it as soon as it’s ready.”
The Robbie and Gosling reunion will perhaps be the 2nd of many future collaborations between the two stars
When the magazine journalist GamesRadar asked the LuckyChap Entertainment executive and producer of the prequel to Ocean’s 11 what do you think of what will therefore be the first post-Gosling and Robbie reunion BarbieJosey McNamara responded that he hopes this second time will be the first of many future collaborations between the two stars.
“They are wonderful together,” she exclaimed. “It would be great to see them in as many projects as possible, even outside of this one,” McNamara added.
The plot details of the prequel “Ocean” are still top secret, however the story is rumored to be set in 1960s Europe. So this time we will be very far from the Las Vegas where the original 1960 film took place, the one with the legendary Rat Pack. This expression refers to the group of entertainers active between the end of the 1950s and the beginning of the 1960s , consisting of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. And if the original 1960 film was set in Las Vegas, the trilogy from the early 2000s starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and company also took place right there, in the so-called “Atomic City” (as Las Vegas was defined in the years of the atomic tests in the Los Alamos desert and surrounding areas). Ocean’s 8 instead it was set in New York City.
McNamara co-founded LuckyChap alongside Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Sophia Kerr. The company produced Barbie and will soon be released in cinemas with Emerald Fennell’s second film, Saltburnpresented (and so far acclaimed by audiences and critics) at the autumn 2023 festivals.
