George Clooney has a firm commitment from director Steven Soderbergh for the follow-up of ''Ocean's Twelve.'' The film will re-unite Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Eddie Jemison, Shaobo Qin, Carl Reiner and Elliott Gould. But the female lead is almost certainly Ellen Barkin. This means that neither Julia Roberts nor Catherine Zeta-Jones will feature in Ocean's Thirteen, according to Variety.George Clooney has a firm commitment from director Steven Soderbergh for the follow-up of "Ocean's Twelve." The film will re-unite Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Eddie Jemison, Shaobo Qin, Carl Reiner and Elliott Gould. But the female lead is almost certainly Ellen Barkin. This means that neither Julia Roberts nor Catherine Zeta-Jones will feature in Ocean's Thirteen, according to 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," said film producer Jerry Weintraub.

"The five of us are all great friends, and we decided we were going to kill ourselves to get this done." Warner Bros has intimated that they will be building a casino in their Los Angeles studio in order to rein in costs. The first film was shot in Las Vegas, while the sequel was filmed in Europe.

The WB soundstages have just been used for filming The Good German, directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring George Clooney. Ocean's Eleven was released in 2001 and raked in $185 million at the US box office, while its sequel took $125 million two years ago.

Julia Roberts starred in Ocean's Eleven, but since Ocean's Twelve was filmed in Europe, Catherine Zeta Jones replaced her in the lead. Nothing much is known about the plot of the film except the fact that Barkin will be involved with Damon's character. Ocean's Thirteen is slated for a summer 2007 release.

I wish people would stop publishing this article without checking the facts. Julia Roberts WAS in Ocean's 12. She had the whole Tess playing

I am a Mega Ocean Fan... Yes it is ok for Barkin to be involved with Damon in Ocean 13 but for both Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta Jones not to appear is not acceptable. Where are the fire and the magnetism coming from??? We can't do without both!!!
