This is the first image of Ocean 8 (remake of Ocean 11) starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Rest of the All-Female Cast.

I agree but why not just use a different title. So many remakes are so diverse that it is silly to call it a remake or similar title.
In this particular case "Ocean's 8" is used because the Sandra Bullock character's last name is Ocean.
She supposedly is Danny Ocean's/George Clooney's sister.
Her heist & storyline will be different.
It's an extension and not really a remake
I see. It good to know.
dashingscorpio, Don't you also think that if the script has a gender for the role, it may not work. For ex, which would have the larger audience Mr. or Miss Universe;America; World etc. I am just saying don't force it just to change gender
bradmasterOCcal, I see what you mean. It will take marketing and lots of explaining. I will be surprised if does well.
I am inclined to agree, but rather see some good old-fashion, talented acting with a good looking, yummy actor.
This is true. Why give it relatively the same title? Draw men as well?
Because in Hollywood, a franchise is a franchise, no matter who stars in the films.
Yup, it's called copyrights.
It has nothing to do with copyright. It has to do with continuing a franchise, and making money from it based on its core following.
True, but there is some sort of copyright issue as well. Of course, it is the legal aspect not the box office aspect.
If it works. The cast looks great. What about a popular movie with a strong female character remade with a strong male character instead.
Sure, could be cool depending on the movie. Maybe an all male version of Bridesmaids? Though pretty sure that might just end up being The Hangover.
Yes. It would be Hangover. Bridesmaid is a funny movie.

I agree though I have enjoyed remakes like Mission Impossible and the recent Star Wars prequel/sequel sans Lucus-directed movies.
Yes. That was a great movie. Weaver's breakout role.
Men are physically strong than women in many ways. But, I don't think it would influence movies like the Ocean franchise. Alien, which was mentioned in this thread, does show a woman being physically and mentally strong than the men in the movie. M
What does this have to do with movies? What a strange little tangent...
True. But, I see what peter565 is trying to say, though it has nothing to do with the question.
