George Clooney to Join All-Female 'Oceans Eight Film 10/25/2016

I don't know how legitimate this is.  No other outlet is reporting it but ....

Mm, this was mooted at the beginning wasn't it? It would seem logical, up the star rating (and the intrigue), wouldn't take much of his time - and he could be in NYC again.........


Except they've actually got the release date wrong!

He is directing until December... I think It's just a typo regarding the release date...it is the same day when Transformers 6 comes out just not July.

I saw this yesterday, too. It does make sense in a lot of ways to have Danny Ocean tied into the story, but I'm skeptical. As Donnamarie says, nobody else has mentioned it and they don't name their "source". Has anyone ever heard of Heat Street before?

I really do think  it's true. Sandra's role is Danny Ocean's sister, thus George must have some screen time. Plus, it has a relatively long post-production period, George could certainly join the reshoots after Suburbicon wraps. Also WB would want it to have strong connections with the original series.

If there's no other casting of male stars at this point, it would make perfect sense that George is the Julia Roberts type in Ocean's Eight, being the only guy among the gals. Except it's more sis-bromance than romance.

Sevens - I'm not saying it doesn't make sense to have Danny Ocean (George) in the movie - from a plotline and box-office standpoint. I'm just skeptical because this is a site I never heard of and they don't name their source. If it's true, don't you think it would have been picked up somewhere else?

I'm not sure how I feel about him being in this. If they have a great script why do they need someone from the franchise to goose it up? And why George? Why not Brad? George needs a hit and this is starting to feel a lot like a gimmick - like the all girl "Ghostbusters" - and look what happened to that.

Lizzy, I'm willing to be that we're talking ten minutes at the beginning and ten at the end max - and if it's anything like the Oceans trilogy it'll be slick.......

Checked into Heat Street. It's a new media source focusing on politics, tech, culture, business and entertainment. Just launched in April this year. Headed up by Louise Mensch, a British writer, journalist and former politician. Owned by News Corp. (Murdoch). It leans center-right and libertarian. Their mission - "We plan to break news, move the media and mock the mainstream.

None of this gets us any closer to determining if the story is true. An unnamed source is always suspicious.
Nothing being reported from Variety, Hollywood Reporter, The Wrap, Deadline, etc.

I would have thought that if he was in it, that's what it would be - a couple of brief scenes to frame the story. But their "source" is claiming that he'll be a supporting character - not just doing a cameo. That makes me nervous. If it had been planned that way from the beginning, wouldn't we have heard about it before now? And if it's something new added to the script, why now? Is the script in trouble? I hope, if he is in the movie, it isn't because they needed someone to save it.

IN this article it says that it will be explained she is Danny Ocean's sister and that they thought about having George but decided to only do that if there is a sequel.

It does say that George is one of the producers.

That sounds more like what I had heard, although I didn't know they were going to save him for a sequel.

Well, here comes the question, who is the only guy in this? Without him, this wouldn't be a typical Ocean's film.
Besides, Ghostbusters is just a slight flop in boxoffice, yet it got a pretty fresh rate on Rotten Tomatoes. Ocean's could definitely do better. 
I just don't get it, why is every Marvel film a major hit while people can't stand a non-scifi reboot or sequel?

I think it's because they're usually not very good.

If you don't have a good script it won't matter how many 'name' stars are attached to a film project. I saw Ghostbusters a couple of weeks ago. I barely laughed. Not funny IMO. The talent was there to deliver really smart and funny lines but the script failed to deliver.

Whether George shows up in Oceans 8 or not will not matter if the writing isn't clever, witty and smart.

If he does show up and it sucks it will matter because they'll find some way to blame it on him. "Another George Clooney movie disappoints." I know they're his friends and it will probably be fun to make, but I hope he keeps to the producing end of this one.

I think even if he produces there will be those who will find a way to blame him.

Gossip Cop just shot this story down as "not true" according to one of George's people. He won't have a role in the movie, although they said it hasn't been decided if he'll do a cameo.

A cameo would be appropriate and won't cause schedule conflicts.
