Ellen Barkin is set to become the leading lady in the second sequel to Oceanís Eleven, Variety reports.

Oceanís Thirteen is scheduled to begin filming in July on five soundstages on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, where a fully operational casino will be built.

The first flick was shot at the Bellagio in Las Vegas and the sequel in Europe, but it became too arduous to shoot a movie around the gambling traffic in a real casino, producer Jerry Weintraub told the trade.

Since Barkin is in the female lead, expect Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones to sit this one out. Barkinís character will get involved with Matt Damonís character.

Steven Soderbergh will be directing returning cast members George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Eddie Jemison, Shaobo Qin, Carl Reiner and Elliott Gould.

The film is scheduled for a summer 2007 release.
