Pacino Tapped for Ocean’s Gang

ON

Talk about a bit of casting news, Variety is reporting that Al Pacino is set to join the cast of Ocean’s Thirteen for Warner Bros. and director Steven Soderbergh.

Who does he join? Well, let’s see… George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Eddie Jemison, Carl Reiner, Elliott Gould, Ellen Barkin and Shaobo Qin. On top of all that, if you ask me, I would not be surprised to see both Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones in this pic.

The pic is eyeing a July 21 start with shooting scheduled to take place in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Details, of course, are being kept quiet, but Warners did tell Variety that Pacino will be playing Willie Banks, the owner of a high-profile casino and hotel in Las Vegas.

Ocean’s Thirteen is currently set for a June 8, 2007 release.
