Zeta-Jones and Clooney spice up Ocean's 12

February 12, 2004 15:46 IST

They loved and hated each other in Coen Brothers' Intolerable Cruelty. Catherine Zeta-Jones and George Clooney will team up again in Steven Soderbergh's sequel to Ocean's Eleven, says a report in People magazine.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and George ClooneyJones and Soderbergh earlier worked together in the Oscar-winning Traffic.

The original Ocean's 11 came out in 1960 featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. The movie revolved around a heist masterminded at three Las Vegas casinos.

Forty-one years later, Soderbergh decided to remake the same with the top line cast of Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Don Cheadle, Casey Affleck and Andy Garcia.

The film's success at the box-office has prompted the Oscar-winning director to make Ocean's 12. According to Reuters, Jones will play a police agent in the film to be shot in Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Monte Carlo, Chicago and Las Vegas. Several members of the earlier film will be seen in the next movie as well.

Last year, Jones won the Best Supporting Actress trophy for her saucy performance in the musical Chicago. The 34-year-old actress is now working on Steven Spielberg's The Terminal (Tom Hanks), and Martin Campbell's Zorro 2 (Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins).
