The buzz around the Ocean’s Eleven prequel has been steadily building since Warner Bros. confirmed the film in August 2022. Promising an exhilarating experience that pays homage to the beloved franchise, Margot Robbie was confirmed to lead the cast early on, with Ryan Gosling subsequently joining the crime drama spectacle. 

Producer Joey McNamara said the following at the BFI London Film Festival, “I can’t say much, but I think we’re just trying to do right by the franchise.” McNamara is excited for audiences to experience the magic Robbie and Gosling bring to the screen, hinting at a collaboration that goes beyond the heist genre.

Titled Oceans, the prequel is not just a reboot but a journey into the past, exploring the roots of Danny Ocean’s life. Not to mention, the latest reports also reveal that Robbie and Gosling will play the roles of Danny Ocean’s parents.
