New Ocean's sequel confirmed
Producers have confirmed that a second sequel to the hit film 'Ocean's Eleven' will be made, although Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones have not yet signed up for the film.
The news of the sequel emerged after the customary speculation, schedule and fee negotiations amongst all of the cast members, all of whom, except for Roberts and Zeta-Jones, have agreed to re-unite for 'Ocean's Thirteen'.
According to Empire, filmmaker Steven Soderbergh will once again be behind the camera for the blockbuster, with the script having been penned by 'Rounders' scribes Brian Koppelman and David Levien.
The thirteenth member of the gang is reportedly set to be Ellen Barkin, who will play a close friend of Matt Damon's bumbling character in the film, Linus.
Producer Jerry Weintraib told Variety: "The odds were long on this happening, and it would not have been possible were it not for those actors and director moving other projects out of the way.
"The five of us are all great friends, and we decided we were going to kill ourselves to get this done."
