Is Sandra Bullock's next project with George Clooney going to be a walk in his tuxedo-rocking, casino-robbing shoes?

The Ms. Congeniality star is reportedly in talks to crank the girl power up all the way to 11 by playing the lead in an Ocean's Eleven reboot with an all-female roster of thieves.

According to The Playlist, the Academy Award winner would be teaming up with The Hunger Games director Gary Ross and Clooney, star of the 2001 blockbuster reboot of the Rat Pack caper flick, to re-invent the timeless plot yet again.

This classic heist thriller has seen several re-makes since the original 1960 film starring Frank Sinatra. The 21st-century version of the action-packed franchise began in 2001 with Ocean's Eleven starring Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and more, all of whom returned for the increasingly complicated sequels Ocean's Twelve and Ocean's Thirteen.

But the last film came out eight years ago, so of course it's time to flip the switch and start all over again!

Per Playlist, Clooney, producer Jerry Weintraub, Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter Olivia Milch got the ball rolling on the idea for a female-led iteration of the franchise last year. The film was put on the back burner when Weintraub died in July, but apparently the plan to make it is still in action.

If Bullock does indeed sign on for this unbelievably good-sounding film, we have no doubt she'd steal the show. She's already proven she can single-handedly keep an audience on the edge of their seats for two hours in Gravity and critics tend to deem her the best part of whatever she's in, including the political satire Our Brand Is Crisis, which opened this past weekend.

And her role in the Clooney-produced film was originally written for the silver fox to play himself, so there's already proof that she can talk a Clooney role and spin it to suit her own powers.

We can only hope that all the pieces for this new Ocean's Eleven come together and that the finished caper is as cool as it sounds.

Watch the girl boss dominate Hollywood.
