CZJ makes it Ocean's Twelve

Feb 12 2004

The Western Mail

 

CATHERINE Zeta Jones has landed a role alongside Julia Roberts in the cast of Ocean's Twelve.

Catherine Zeta Jones will join the star-studded cast, which includes George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon,  in the sequel to the hit Hollywood blockbuster Ocean's Eleven.

"Now I have two of the most beautiful women in the world in this picture," said producer Jerry Weintraub.

"I think this is my crowning achievement.

"I have 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 added.

Jeff Robinov, president of production at Warner Bros. Pictures, said, "Catherine has demonstrated her ability to handle humour as gracefully as she does drama.

"She will be the perfect addition to our already terrific cast on this movie.

"We're extremely happy to be working with the tremendous team involved with this picture."

The new role follows yesterday's confirmation Swansea-born Zeta-Jones has a new agent.

She ditched George Freeman, the man who helped make her an international movie star, switching to rival agency Creative Artists, one of the most powerful talent agencies in America.

It was not clear last night which was responsible for negotiating this part in Ocean's Twelve.

Filming will begin on April 12 and locations will include Chicago, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Weintraub, who also produced the 2001 hit Ocean's Eleven, said that the movie is likely to be released in December.
