‘Finally the right team for the job has come together in a bid to make it a huge success and the main stars thought it would be good fun to revisit.

‘The franchise is hugely popular and the brilliant storyline was an opportunity that was too good to miss.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon for comment.

The first film in the franchise, Ocean’s Eleven, followed Danny Ocean (George) and Rusty Ryan (Brad) as they planned a $160 million heist from casino owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), the lover of Danny’s ex-wife Tess (Julia Roberts).

The film, released in 2001, made $450million at the box office and was followed by two sequels.

Ocean’s Eight, a spin-off with an all-female cast lead by Sandra Bullock, was released in 2018.

Talk of an Ocean’s 14 film happened in the past but plans were axed following the death of Bernie Mac – who played Frank Catton – in 2008.

Fellow cast member Don Cheadle said: ‘We were talking about it, and then Bernie passed, and very quickly we were like, “No, we don’t want to do it.”‘

However, Matt Damon expressed interest in another film during an interview on Good Morning America last year, but he said the future of the franchise was down to its director Steven Soderbergh.

He said: ‘It would always be up to Steven Soderbergh if there was a story.’

‘We have lost a couple of our members, so we would have to figure it out, we are a depleted gang now.’

Matt was referring to actor Carl Reiner, who played Saul Bloom in the franchise, who passed away in 2020 aged 98.
