The 'Gravity' star will once again work with George Clooney on the re-make.
Sandra Bullock is to lead the cast of an all-female re-boot of the classic movie Ocean’s Eleven, according to a new report. The project will also see her re-unite with her Our Brand Is Crisis collaborator George Clooney, who will be taking up a production role.
It’s the latest example of Hollywood’s recent preference for re-booting old movies with a female cast, such as the upcoming Ghostbusters movie which stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and the Marvel comic book adaptation Doctor Strange, which will feature Tilda Swinton as 'The Ancient One', a role that was originally thought to be occupied by a male actor.

The Clooneys now have three dogs, all rescue animals.
George and Amal Clooney have welcomed a new member of their family – an adorable basset hound dog named Millie, whom they adopted from an animal shelter earlier this week.
The San Gabriel Valley Humane Society said on its website that the Clooneys adopted the four year old dog from them on Wednesday (October 28th). Millie was found homeless a month ago, begging for scraps outside a restaurant, and was taken in by the shelter.
The site says that George, 54, and Amal, 37, were looking for a basset hound to join their other rescue dogs, a cocker spaniel named Louie and a spaniel mix named Einstein, and found Millie’s picture via the site Petfinder.

Sandra Bullock wanted a director that could bring out the best in her.
Sandra Bullock leads the cast for true story drama 'Our Brand Is Crisis', and while she's well known for some impressive acting stints throughout her career, she's crediting director David Gordon Green for her work in this movie; a filmmaker who came on board after a long struggle to find the perfect director.
Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton star as arch-rivals in 'Our Brand Is Crisis'
Bullock stars as a political campaign expert named Jane with a questionable past, who nearly loses sight of her own morals in a bid to beat her rival Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton) in the presidential victory race and clear her less then clean record. It's not just a straightforward drama though; as can be expected from Bullock, there's plenty of humour there and a whole lot of heart, creating something that she describes as 'emotionally complex' and thus a daunting task for any director.
Eddie Mannix is a fixer who works in Hollywood where he tames celebrities and keeps theirs, and movie studios', secrets out of the press - no matter how big the story. It's not the easiest job in the world, and it's certainly not always the most morally fulfilling, but it's about to get a whole lot harder when one studio, Capitol Pictures, presents him with a major problem the likes of which could be career destroying. They're working on a huge production epic entitled 'Hail, Caesar!' starring Hollywood sensation Baird Whitlock, but things go particularly awry when he is kidnapped and held for ransom by a mysterious group known only as The Future. They want $100,000, and after 24 hours, the studio aren't looking any more hopeful. Mannix enlists a feisty and beautiful female star to procure the money, while Whitlook finds himself in a most unusual situation.

The Clooneys have upset residents in the village of Sonning Eye in Berkshire with their plans to install an extensive network of cameras around the property.
George Clooney and Amal Clooney are at loggerheads with their neighbours once more, this time over plans to install a brand new security system on their multi-million pound Berkshire property. Neighbours are up in arms over the proposals, which include eight cameras to be installed on poles just outside the boundaries of their property.
According to local newspaper The Henley Standard, the Clooneys are looking to bolster security at their £10 million dream mansion near the village of Sonning Eye that they purchased back in October 2014, which they are still in the process of renovating. The plans for mounted cameras face opposition from residents who are complaining that they will be an eyesore and intrude on their privacy.

The much-loved movie producer died suddenly of heart failure in Santa Barbara, California on Monday.
Jerry Weintraub, one of the biggest names in the movie industry, has died suddenly at the age of 77. The iconic producer and ex-head of United Artists Studios passed away on Monday (July 6th) of heart failure following a short hospital stay.
TMZ reported on Tuesday that the movie mogul began feeling unwell over the Fourth of July weekend and suffered a heart attack a few days after initially being diagnosed with a bowel condition.
Weintraub had worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest names and had a crucial role in developing movies such as Nashville, All Night Long, the original, sequels and re-make of The Karate Kid, and the 2001 reboot of Ocean’s Eleven.

Clooney and his new wife bought a multi-million pound mansion in Berkshire last year, but the completion date for the renovation keeps being put back and the noise is upsetting his neighbours.
Residents of a Berkshire village near the town of Reading are divided over the presence of George and Amal Clooney as their neighbours – even though the couple are yet to move in!
The power couple purchased a £10 million dream mansion in the village of Sonning Eye and were due to move in at the end of July when extensive renovation work had been completed.

'Tomorrowland' is a flop, though Disney has Ant-Man, Inside-Out and Star Wars: A Force Awakens to come.
Disney will lose between $120-140 million on Brad Bird's big-budget fantasy adventure Tomorrowland, according to sources. It represents the studio's biggest financial misfire since The Lone Ranger prompted a $190 million write down and raises serious questions about the quality of the script and effectiveness of the marketing.
Tomorrowland was a major disappoinment for Disney
Tomorrowland is also the third big-budget bomb of 2015, with Jupiter Ascending and Seventh Son suffering similar fates. Meanwhile, low-budget hits such as Spy and Pitch Perfect 2 are thriving.

The new movie marks a change in cinema's obsession with dystopia.
It seems George Clooney's happiness in his personal life, following his fairytale-like marriage to Amal Clooney, has been reflected in his work with him taking on a positive and uplifting story in Disney's 'Tomorrowland'. The actor is clearly glad for some respite amidst the barrage of Hollywood dystopias.
George Clooney stars in Disney utopia 'Tomorrowland'
With films like 'The Hunger Games', 'World War Z' and 'Divergent', it's clear that the idea of a dystopian future is a popular one in cinema, but sometimes it's necessary to take a break from the misery and hopelessness with a little Disney utopia. Of course, that's what Disneyland is all about - and that's where 'Tomorrowland' was born.
Tomorrowland isn't quite as ahead of its time as the name suggests.
Tomorrowland, Brad Bird’s tentpole action adventure, premiered this weekend to disappointing earnings, but still managed to come ahead of the previous week’s winner, Pitch Perfect 2. Tomorrowland checked in at $32,3 million at the end of the three-day weekend, meaning its overall four-day debut, counting the early release, comes out to $40,7 million. It’s a disappointing figure for Disney, whose profits from Tomorrowland were predicted to reach and pass the $44 million mark (according to Box Office Mojo) – it’s a miss, but not by much.
Tomorrowland offers a glimpse of a futuristic world.
Tomorrowland came in behind expectations in North America, and will need strong word of mouth to end up in the black, considering the live-action fantasy adventure cost $180 million to produce. The worst impact was overseas, where the movie opened to $26.7 million from 65 market .
The first reveal of the upcoming Netflix Christmas miniseries, 'A Very Murray Christmas', has been released to get you in the festive mood... in May.
Christmas has come early. Well, Christmas advertising has come early. Netflix has announced their upcoming mini-series 'A Very Murray Christmas', set to appear in December. The show will star Bill Murray - as the name suggests - and will serve as a homage to variety shows.
Bill Murray wishes you 'A Very Murray Christmas'...
Murray stars as himself. He served as the writer alongside Mitch Glazer and Sofia Coppola who will direct. Murray and Coppola worked together on the well-received 2003 film 'Lost in Translation', while Glazer wrote the 1988 adaptation of 'A Christmas Carol' entitled 'Scrooged', starring Murray.

With his recent appearance in 'Tomorrowland', George Clooney has spoken about his optimism about a new intellectual property in cinemas, instead of a sequel or comic-book adaptation.
'Tomorrowland' is one of the only original blockbusters we'll see in cinemas this summer. "I think it's a really bold thing for Disney to be willing to do a film that isn't a sequel and isn't a comic book," says the movie's star George Clooney, who adds with a smile, "and putting me in a summer movie is a very bold thought."
George Clooney at the premiere of 'Tomorrowland'
At 54, Clooney is feeling his age. "I'm getting too old for this," he says, laughing. "The script said, '55-year-old, angry, bitter has-been, formerly handsome.' And I thought, 'Brilliant, you wrote that for me?' Then on the set I had to fight another old TV doctor [Hugh Laurie, aka House]. I was just getting beaten with a cane the whole time!"

So, did Disney do it again?
We've heard about Disney's Tomorrowland for years now. Brad Bird's mystery adventure had George Clooney attached from the outset and the story of a former boy genius jaded by dilussionment who teams up with an optmisitic teen to unearth the secrets of a hidden land certainly sounds like classic Disney fare. But how has it fared with the critics?

The people behind Tomorrowland have a strong pedigree - the screenplay is a joint effort between Lost writer Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird.
Continue reading: Did Disney Bring The Magic In 'Tommorowland'?
Big summer blockbusters are so rarely optimistic that it's tricky to know how to take this movie, its utopian view of the future is a refreshing antidote to both dystopic-nightmare thrillers and those blood-boiling, doom-and-gloom documentaries about how the end of the world is nigh. Even more interesting is the idea that this movie is essentially based on Walt Disney himself, who believed creativity and invention were the key to a happy tomorrow. So it's a bit of a shame that everything feels so childish.
The story centres on the restless Casey (Britt Robertson), an almost frighteningly brainy teenager who's trying to keep Nasa from closing down the launch pad where her dad (Tim McGraw) works. Unknown to her, the eerily ageless young Athena (Raffey Cassidy) is watching, leaving a pin that's a key to a magical glimpse of a parallel space-age future. Investigating this, Casey travels to Houston, where she gets in trouble at a sci-fi collectible shop. Rescued by Athena, they travel to New York to meet Frank (George Clooney), a grumpy old man who was once a wide-eyed inventor like Casey and has known Athena since 1964. Together they work out a way to get back to Tomorrowland to confront its pessimistic leader Nix (Hugh Laurie), who seems to have accepted the fact that the world is falling apart.
The script briefly grazes against big ideas like global poverty and climate change, which gives the film a hint of weight to balance out a plot that is clearly aimed at a 10-year-old. It's all rather simplistic, which means it doesn't quite speak to grown-ups, although the positive approach can't help but catch the interest. Director Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) keeps the imagery whizzy, with fabulous gadgets and thrilling effects work that beautifully imagines a city of the future. Plus a pretty cool Eiffel Tower revelation. He also makes sure that the characters' intelligence shines through, which allows Robertson and Clooney to inject a sparky sense of rivalry.

The ‘Tomorrowland’ actor has revealed how he popped the question to his human rights lawyer wife, Amal Alamuddin.
There was a time not so long ago when no story about George Clooney was complete without reference being made to the actor’s bachelor status.

But when he finally did meet ‘the one’, how did George pop the question?

George Clooney is a scientist again in 'Tomorrowland'
There's not a lot of information being revealed out this upcoming magical, sci-fi journey, but from what we gather we can expect a shedload of futuristic gadgets, an object of extreme power, a mystical land beyond reach and angst-ridden teenaged hero. Standard fantasy stuff then - but we wouldn't have it any other way.
Casey Newton loves inventing and all things scientific, but she's definitely got a problem with authority. After a run in with the cops, she discovers an unusual artifact - a coin sized pin with a large letter 'T' on the front that, when handled, seems to take her to a sun-drenched wheatfield in a strange land. Unfortunately, nobody else believes her newfound phenomenon so she is forced to explore the mystery behind it herself. She eventually stumbles across a old scientist named Frank Walker who informs her that the futuristic land she has seen is Tomorrowland, a place full of the smartest individuals set on changing the world for the better. And now he has his eye on Casey as his latest recruit. But it's a dangerous journey for a young girl and she has to be ready for a fight.

Clooney's wife Amal Clooney visited the New York set of the film.
Snaps from the set of George Clooney's upcoming thriller 'Money Monster' in New York gave a startling sneak peak into the movie's plot as we see the Academy Award winning actor strapped up in a most unusual (and terrifying) ensemble. We're too excited.
George Clooney stars in 'Money Monster'
Newly emerged images from the film set of the drama showed Clooney wearing what can only be described as a suicide vest over his shirt and tie. The costume featured pockets containing what are clearly meant to be explosive devices, while a shifty looking Jack O'Connell clutches the deadly remote switch.
The actor has previously complained about celeb spotters invading his privacy at his holiday villas in Italy.
Celebrity self-importance time! George Clooney seems to have filed a restraining order against the rest of the world, with the news that the mayor of the Italian town where the actor owns two luxury villas has drastically raised the fine that can be imposed on members of the public getting too close to the properties.
According to the Telegraph, Roberto Pozzi, the mayor of the picturesque town of Laglio on the shores of Lake Como, confirmed that those who create “problems of public order” when gathering near either of his properties will be liable to a fine of 500 euros (or $550), nearly five times what it was before.
