LOS ANGELES - Catherine Zeta-Jones has joined Julia Roberts in the cast of "Ocean's Twelve."
"Now I have two of the most beautiful women in the world in this picture," producer Jerry Weintraub told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Filming, which begins April 12, takes place in Chicago, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Weintraub, who produced the 2001 hit "Ocean's Eleven," said the movie will likely be released in December.
"Steven Soderbergh is the best and fastest director in the world."
Landing Zeta-Jones is a dream come true for Weintraub.
"I think this is my crowning achievement. I've been wanting to work with her and we had this wonderful role for a woman and it's hard to find someone of that stature, an Oscar winner," Weintraub said.
Zeta-Jones will join the cast that also includes George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Andy Garcia, Bernie Mack, Casey Affleck, Carl Reiner and Elliott Gould.
