The first of the films, Ocean's Eleven (2001) was a remake of the 1960 film of the same name and was followed, due to an immense commercial success, by sequels Ocean's Twelve (2004) and Ocean's Thirteen (2007). The films combine well-known elements from heist films and con artist films, presented in a slick and cool style, with a notable absence of violence and gunplay, and an emphasis on humor and lightheartedness.
In Ocean's Twelve, Ocean's crew goes to Europe for some heists to get back enough money to pay casino tycoon Terry Benedict, but seem to run into a thievery competition.
Soderbergh and George Clooney initially downplayed the possibility of an Ocean's Fourteen or subsequent sequels due to Bernie Mac's death in 2008. However, a new Ocean's Eleven spin-off with an all-female cast led by Sandra Bullock as the sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean character is in development as of October 2015. It was conceived by producer Jerry Weintraub, Soderbergh and Clooney. Olivia Milch is to write the screenplay, and Gary Ross is to direct. Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and Elizabeth Banks were later announced to star in the film.
The title of the spin-off was later revealed to be Ocean's Eight. In August 2016, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna and Nora "Awkwafina" Lum confirmed to also join the cast. The night after her Emmy win, Sarah Paulson was announced as the final cast member of the titular eight.
