While promoting his then-latest film in October, George Clooney told journalists that "the whole gang" would be back for "Ocean's Twelve," the sequel to 2001's "Ocean Eleven" that he produced and starred in. Unfortunately, it seems that at least one of the actors that was a part of the first film will not be making the trip overseas for the next big heist. According to FilmJerk.com sources, the role of Yen - the Chinese acrobat that Shaobo Qin played in the original - is now being recast.
Since hearing this from several sources this past week, we have since verified that casting documents, which are sent to actors' agents in order to set up auditions with suitable clients, have now been distributed for the role.
The start of filming is now confirmed to be April, which was pushed back a month after an injury to co-star Brad Pitt on the "Troy" set. In between "Troy" and "Twelve," Pitt will be filming "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," according to a Fox publicist, with it "starting shooting in Los Angeles soon...[the film] may come to New York City in late February or early March to shoot some scenes."
