Will Ocean's 2016 movie have hacking and robbing an online casino?

The Ocean's Eleven franchise of casino movies is one of the most successful casino movie franchises in all of history. These are films that have helped further the careers of everyone involved, including many of the more established stars like Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and George Clooney. There is a new Ocean's Eleven movie that has been in development since the year 2015, and it is tentatively scheduled to be released in 2016.

This movie is already going to be very different from a lot of the other movies in the Ocean's Eleven franchise, which helps to signal the ways in which the culture has changed over the past fifteen years. Would Ocean movie of 2016 hacking and robbing an online casino instead of the Bellagio casino?

The rise of online casino gambling is certainly one of the most important cultural changes involved with casinos in the first place, and a gambling movie that actually addressed that fact would certainly be one of the most appropriately modern gambling movies that people would be able to see today. Seeing an appearance of the Red Flush Online Casino in a movie would be a very special occasion. As far as product placement goes, it would be some of the more effective product placement of the last few decades. Many casino movies have featured product placement of some kind or another, typically involving the product placement for the casino in which the film is staged. With the Red Flush Online Casino or other online casinos playing a major role, the nature of the movie is going to be very different, of course.

People who try and hit the highest paying online jackpots will use very different means compared to the people who are trying to conduct a traditional casino heist. However, lots of movies have already been made about computer hacking, and these have been some very popular and critically acclaimed films in general. There is no reason why a new Ocean's Eleven movie couldn't involve online casino gaming. Sandra Bullock is definitely going to star in this new movie in 2016, which is a reboot of the original Ocean's Eleven movie from the early 2000s. Sandra Bullock has already starred in a popular movie about a computer systems analyst and computer fraud: 1995's The Net. People are going to accept her as a person who can pull off a heist involving an online casino.

Will Ocean's 2016 movie plot have hacking and robbing an online casino? Many of the details about the film are not available yet. However, it is known that this film is going to have an all-female cast, which is virtually unheard of in general and which is especially rare in casino movies. This is a film that reflects the increasing influence of feminism in the film industry today. If a film is very modern in this regard, it is going to be that much more modern in other respects as well. Few things could be more modern in a movie like this than online casinos.
