Catherine Zeta-Jones is joining the all-star ensemble cast of Ocean's Twelve, the sequel to 2001's Ocean's Eleven.
The Warner Bros Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures film is being directed by Steven Soderbergh, who worked with the actress in 2000's Traffic.
Ocean's Twelve will reunite the original cast of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon and Don Cheadle in another crime caper, this time with an international flavour.
Casey Affleck, Vincent Cassel and Elliott Gould also return for a story set in Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Monte Carlo, Italy's Lake Como, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Zeta-Jones will play a Europol agent and potential love interest to Pitt's character.
"Catherine is a great star, and this is a star-studded cast," producer Jerry Weintraub said. "I needed someone as important as the other stars, and I've found that person. With Julia and Catherine, I think I have the two most beautiful women in the world in this movie."
It is planned to start filming the movie in April, reports Hollywood Reporter.
