There will be no flounders in the new "Ocean's 11," a remake of Frank Sinatra's 1960 crime caper set in Vegas. Besides George Clooney in the lead role of Danny Ocean, originally played by Old Blue Eyes, Brad Pitt is being mentioned to co-star in the story about an old group of army buddies who hit on all the hotel vaults on the city's Strip. The first 11 was comprised of Sinatra's fabled Rat Pack, which included Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. Shirley MacLaine even played a cameo. In the upcoming version, which is starting to take on a cachet all its own, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts and Mike Myers are jockeying for roles, reports Variety. It will be interesting to see if the film's budget can support them.
