Glamour Women Of The Year Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

Plans for an all-female Ocean's 11 movie are gathering pace, with Elizabeth Banks the latest actress who looks set for a role.

Sandra Bullock has already been reported to be on board, and Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling are also linked to the project.

Showbiz 411 has now said that Hunger Games star Elizabeth looks set for a part.

The plot is under wraps but it's rumoured that Sandra will play the sister of Danny Ocean, who was played by George Clooney in the original films.

On social media, fans are getting excited about the prospect of an all-female crime caper.

However, many people have said they can't understand the trend for making over male-dominated movies as female ones.

It's thought the movie will start shooting next year.
