These days, franchise movie making is extra essential than ever earlier than. Whether we’re speaking about sequels, reboots or remakes, the overwhelming majority of films that we see on the massive display screen are issues that we have seen earlier than. Even the George Clooney-led Ocean’s 11 franchise (which was itself a remake) noticed a derivative within the type of the latest Ocean’s Eight. But do not count on that to result in one other film in the principle franchise, as a result of Brad Pitt’s actually not .
The Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood actor not too long ago made an look on the National Board of Review, and in response a query about his targets in life, mentioned that certainly one of them is to by no means must make Ocean’s 14…
In 2001 George Clooney put collectively an all-star solid together with Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, and extra to remake the Rat Pack cult traditional Ocean’s 11. While the unique movie by no means went past a single entry, the remake was in style sufficient to spawn a pair of sequels, Oceans 12 and Ocean’s 13. It’s been greater than ten years because the final movie, and so no one was probably actually searching for one other entry, but when one of many key actors is closing the door, it makes such a factor not possible.
Of course, Brad Pitt is not essentially selecting on this explicit franchise. He’s utilizing it as a stand-in for the whole concept of constructing a film just because he wants the cash. If we really did get one other Ocean’s film proper now starring Pitt, there can be a query as to why, and the pay day will surely be one of many potential causes.
We’ve definitely seen instances of actors agreeing to make films they may not in any other case have achieved as a result of their monetary state of affairs required it. There are some actors, who will not be picked on right here, who’ve definitely been accused of such.
Luckily, barring some actually dangerous investments or another mismanagement, it appears extremely unlikely that Brad Pitt will discover himself in such a state of affairs. He simply received a Golden Globe for his position in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood, which might probably result in an Oscar nomination.
That will assist preserve Pitt’s movie wage in a cushty place, even when he might most likely make extra if he did make Ocean’s 14. He’s nonetheless one of many high stars in Hollywood and whereas he is implied that not too long ago he would possibly need to spend extra time doing different issues, as his buddy George Clooney has been doing as of late, appearing is the kind of job you’ll be able to simply do half time, particularly if you’re ready just like the one Pitt is presently in.
Still, there are most likely some individuals, on the very least studio execs, who would not thoughts seeing Oceans 14.
