Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh and Ross will produce with executive producer Susan Ekins. Village Roadshow is co-producing and co-financing, as it did with the three previous “Ocean’s” movies starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Greg Silverman and Jesse Ehrman are overseeing the film for the studio.

Production is scheduled to begin soon in New York.
