While the first three Steven Soderbergh directed Oceans movies (Oceans Eleven, Oceans Twelve and Oceans Thirteen) have grossed over a billion dollars worldwide, producer Jerry Weintraub said he won’t be making Oceans Fourteen. He said this last night at the Milken Institute Global Conference, where he was telling the standing-room-only crowd stories of his history in Hollywood and how he first got into the business. THR has a good write-up on the event.
Of course even though Weintraub says he won’t make Oceans 14, I’m sure if Soderbergh and the rest of the cast decided to do one more at some point down the road, everyone would have a change of heart. While some didn’t enjoy Oceans 12 or 13 as much as the first film, I really enjoy the series and would welcome another movie down the road. I don’t know of another franchise that has so many great actors having so much fun on screen.
