O13 to be filmed in Las Vegas?

  • Hopefully this project will never eventuate, but Norm at the Review Journal is reporting that Ocean's Thirteen may be filmed at the Wynn Las Vegas resort:

    Sequel might be filmed at Wynn

    Insiders say "Ocean's Thirteen" producers have been talking to Wynn Las Vegas about basing much of the film at the new resort.

    A Wynn rep reached on Saturday said she was not aware that a deal has been finalized.

    The Bellagio was the main site of the 2001 remake of "Ocean's Eleven," starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia and Don Cheadle, among others.

    Catherine Zeta-Jones joined the cast for the 2004 "Ocean's Twelve," which was again directed by Steven Soderbergh and set and shot in Europe.

    Clooney had hoped to film this sequel at his new Las Ramblas project with Rande Gerber, but the billion-dollar resort won't be completed in time.

  • There are some reports around, including at Cinematical, which mention that Matt is being considered for a film called Torso about the life of Elliott Ness after The Untouchables period. It smacks of an act of desperation by the director to mention Matt for a role which is not confirmed, and he appears to be seeking an early Internet response to the casting or cheap publicity. There is yet to be an occasion where Matt's name was floated (outside of the trades) for a movie and he ended up taking the role. Unlikely to happen here.
