The GC Website reports that Steven Soderbergh talked about the sequel in an interview to a Norwegian newspaper recently: "I know we can make a better film than Ocean's Eleven. I've been playing with ideas in my head, but nothing is materialised. I know we'll shoot in Europe and that all actors are in on it". Will the actors get better pay? "Quite the opposite. I'll make a sequel that'd be cheaper to make than the first one. The actors took large pay cuts to make the first one, this time they work for free. And none of them has protested against that". Shooting is loosely scheduled for 2004.
