A new Ocean's Eleven is en route, everyone! The iconic franchise is coming back for another sure-to-be major box-office hit - and this time the one and only Margot Robbie is on board! We didn't think the cast could get any better following the 2018 Ocean's Eight female-centric cast with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, and many more iconic stars. However, now that we've gotten word Margot Robbie is jumping on, we can only imagine whose making the final cut this time...

Helmed by Jay Roach, who previously directed Robbie in the 2019 drama, Bombshell, where she was nominated for an Oscar, the two are bound to cook up a major success. Jay Roach is known for his famously popular work directing Meet The Parents and the Austin Powers movie series, so this just feels right. The actress is producing the upcoming film with her husband Tom Ackerley, known for movies such as Promising Young Woman and I, Tonya (in which Robbie also starred). What an iconic Hollywood duo!

The movie franchise began in 2001 with three films following its major success in 2004, 2007, and 2018. The Warner Bros heist films are famously known for their unbelievably star-studded cultivated cast, hilariously witty scripts, opulent and extravagant settings, and overall glam. The Ocean's Eleven franchise actually originated from the 1960 film, which starred Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra as they teamed up to rob a Las Vegas bank. Iconic. With the incredible amount of commercial success back in the 60s, the film was rebooted over forty years later - this time starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt. Again, iconic. The cast has varied from movie to movie, but each time the heist gets bigger, but the job always gets done!

With this in mind, we're sure Robbie's co-stars will be nothing short of Hollywood's finest - and if they do decide to bring back Clooney or Pitt, well, let's just say no one will be upset about it. As of now, there are no details regarding the cast of the new film besides Robbie being set to star, but we do know it will be placed in Europe in the 1960s. So, make sure to stay tuned until we know more!
