Ellen Barkin has taken over as the franchise's leading lady, and now Al Pacino has been added to the cast of Warner Bros.' Ocean's Thirteen.

Julia Roberts won't be back, and it's likely that Catherine Zeta-Jones won't be making a return. It was announced last month, however, that Ellen Barkin would be stepping in as the new leading lady, and now the filmmakers behind the upcoming Ocean's Thirteen, the third installment in the blockbuster franchise, have announced the Oscar winner Al Pacino will be joining the cast of the project. Helmer Steven Soderbergh will begin shooting the project on July 21 in and around Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Pacino and Barkin will now join the returning gang from the first two Ocean's pics, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle and Bernie Mac. Details of the script for the third film, penned by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, are being kept close to the vest, but Daily Variety reports that Warner Bros., the studio behind the project, revealed that Pacino will play Willie Banks, the owner of a high-profile Las Vegas casino.
