Maybe Sandra Bullock is going to gender-swap George Clooney’s entire IMDb?

The actress currently stars in Our Brand Is Crisis, in a role that was originally written for Clooney. Now, she is rumored to be taking over his part in an all-female Ocean’s Eleven reboot, Variety first reported.

Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) is set to direct the film and, honestly, you didn’t think we would let an opportunity like this go by without some dream casting, did you?

The obvious Pitt counterpart is Angelina Jolie. But we don’t think that would work here. Anyway, it would be far more interesting seeing Anison play the cool guy.

Maybe it’s because they've appeared in two movies together -- Interstellar and The Martian -- but our brain immediately leapt to Chastain to play the capable underdog.

We actually could see Jolie as the slick, ruthless casino owner. (And opposite Aniston? What a treat that would be!) That said, a far more realistic option is Belluci. Salma Hayek could be good too.

Henson steals every single scene she’s in on Empire -- and probably some scenes she’s not in -- so we can’t think of anyone better to play the loose-cannon ammunition expert.

The Saturday Night Live star will be in-demand after the all-female Ghostbusters reboot hits theaters, and she has the perfect comedic sensibilities to fill the hole left by the late Mac.

That’s just the start. We cannot wait to see who they cast for Elliott Gould.
