The gang's all in for another Ocean's Eleven sequel. Executive producers George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh have signed Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle, Andy Garcia and Bernie Mac for the second sequel, Ocean's Thirteen. Clooney will star and Soderbergh will once again direct.
The only star from the first film that won't be in this one is Julia Roberts. But then again, she wasn't featured prominently in the first sequel. Her replacement in Ocean's Twelve, Catherine Zeta-Jones won't return for this one either, says Variety. Reports say Ellen Barkin will take the female lead.
Producer Jerry Weintraub says production will start on July 21 at the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, Calif. The film is scheduled for a summer 2007 release in theaters.
