Al Pacino is to star in 'Ocean's Thirteen'.
The actor has signed up to join the original all-star cast for the upcoming third instalment of the hit movie series.
The Oscar-winning star will play casino owner Willie Banks opposite Hollywood giants George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Andy Garcia.
However, Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones will not be reprising their roles from the previous film, 'Ocean's Twelve', as both stars have been snubbed by the producers.
Surprisingly, filmmakers claimed "there was no place to really use talent like theirs" in such small roles.
Director Steven Sodenbergh, who also took the helm on the first two films, is hoping to start shooting the third instalment in Las Vegas and Los Angeles later this summer.
