So it was just recently announced that Sandra Bullock will headline an all female Ocean's Eleven remake.

So myself, along with a friend, came up with a fan-casting of who could join her in the movie.

As the movie is in it's very early stages, no character details have been announced so I'm sticking with the names, jobs and likeness of the male characters.

Emma Stone as Rusty Ryan

I think Emma Stone would be amazing in this role. Obviously the age gap is a bit bigger between herself and Sandra Bullock than it was between George Clooney and Brad Pitt but I don't really see that as a problem.

Aside from her stunning looks, I believe Stone can pull off the seriousness, the slight humor and the suaveness that Brad Pitt had in the films.

OTHER CONTENDERS: Rosamund Pike and Melissa McCarthy.

Ellen Page as Linus Caldwell

Matt Damon/Ellen Page

Ellen Page has what it takes to play a major part of the Ocean's team but also to play the vulnerable kid who doesn't want to be a failure in their parents eyes.

OTHER CONTENDERS: Chloƫ Grace Moretz and Saoirse Ronan.

Retta as Frank Catton

Bernie Mac/Retta

I fully believe Retta can be every bit of a con artist and a smooth talker as Bernie Mac was in these movies.

OTHER CONTENDERS: CCH Pounder, Viola Davis and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

Helen Mirren as Reuben Tishkoff

Elliot Gould/Helen Mirren.

It's Helen Mirren!

Just in case you need an explanation, Helen Mirren can most definitely pull off the role of a wealthy, former casino owner.

OTHER CONTENDERS: Sigourney Weaver or swapping roles with Judi Dench.

Amy Poehler & Tian Fey as Virgil & Turk Malloy

Casey Affleck/Amy Poehler/Scott Caan/Tina Fey.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are already set to play sisters in the upcoming film, Sisters, but I couldn't think of two better women to play the bickering mechanics.

OTHER CONTENDERS: Not sure at the moment.

Rashida Jones as Livingston Dell

Eddie Jemison/Rashida Jones.

I originally wasn't sure about who I would cast in this role but it wasn't until I was searching for pictures of Amy Poehler that I stumbled across a picture of Rashida Jones and instantly couldn't think of anyone better to play the nervous, sweaty electronics and surveillance expert.

OTHER CONTENDERS: Emmy Rossum, Sarah Silverman and Winona Ryder.

Michelle Rodriguez as Basher Tarr

No one screams explosives expert more than Michelle Rodriguez!

OTHER CONTENDERS: Dichen Lachman, Parminder Nagra and Maggie Q.

Any gymnast, contortionist or acrobat as The Amazing Yen

I'm not at all familiar with any gymnasts, contortionists or acrobats so I'll just leave this blank for the casting director.

Judi Dench as Saul Bloom

Again, I don't think this needs no explanation but I would love nothing more to see Judi Dench play an elderly con woman, especially alongside Helen Mirren.

OTHER CONTENDERS: I could see Helen Mirren and Judi Dench swapping roles. Another possibility would be Maggie Smith.

So there it is! My fan cast for the Ocean's Eleven female remake. Agree? Disagree?
