You’d think they’d be satisfied with pulling off the biggest heist in Vegas history, but nooooo. Variety reports that partners in crime George Clooney and director Steven Soderbergh have set a start date for the filming of a sequel to their 2001 hit ”Ocean’s Eleven.” Called ”Ocean’s Twelve” (wait a minute, did we miss the first 10 installments?), the film will shoot in March 2004, with an eye toward a release at Christmastime next year.

That may seem like a long way off, but it may be the next time you’ll see work from either Clooney or Soderbergh again, since both have said they’d like to take time off after back-to-back projects that have included ”Solaris” and ”Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” As for whether they can get the rest of the ”Ocean’s” gang together, Variety reports that the filmmakers are in talks with Brad Pitt, and that the rest of the crime crew will probably be a mix of old and new crooks.
