Third installment gets July 21 start date
Warner Bros. and producer Jerry Weintraub have set a July 21 start date for “Ocean’s Thirteen,” and Ellen Barkin is the pic’s new leading lady. Filming will take place primarily on five soundstages on the WB lot in Burbank, where a fully operational casino will be built. Soderbergh has already committed to direct 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. With Barkin in, that means previous first femmes Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones are sitting this one out.
