"Okay, so you're telling us it's a good idea to make a third film to our remake?" (Warner Brothers Production) I've been observing you since the hit Television show "ER". Dude, you have totally made a name. You have one incredible talent and continuing to blossom into a great filmmaker. You have managed to hold steady on an upward trajectory for the past several years. (Reported the Washington Post) What you have accomplished is not an easy feat as an aging actor constantly being challenged by every Heath, Bloom and Rhys-Meyers.
In case I haven't already mentioned it: job well done on the Oscar. You deserve every moment of success and I am sure more is to come.
It's like you have a six sense in what are usually good projects -- "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," "Three Kings," "Syriana," "Good Night and Good Luck." I say "usually" because yesterday I just heard that your plan on taking on the second sequel of "Ocean's Thirteen"! I'm writing this letter to stop you from doing the biggest mistake of your career.
Don't do it, George! You got lucky with "Ocean's Twelve" and even that was bad enough. You are such an excellent director. Don't do another sequel even though the last Ocean paid millions of dollars in Paychecks to you. It's not worth ruining your career. "Oceans Twelve" was so dull. Yes, dull. So many reviews at the time of the film, agreed. It's like peeling off a band-Aid slowly. That can be too painful.
I know you are trying to go the easy way for a fast pay-check. "Ocean's Twelve" grossed over $350 million; not too far off the $444 million grossed by "Ocean's Eleven." (Reported the Washington Post). Just keep in mind George, the flops of Oscar winning films that fell downward after too many sequels, "Matrix Revolutions" or, worse yet, "Rocky III"!
George: We just like you and respect you to much, so it's hard to watch you squander your talent (even for a stellar cast) and play us for any easy box office win. Stop now.
Julia Roberts, Clooney's love interest in the first two movies, and "Ocean's Twelve" co-star Catherine Zeta-Jones will not be able to come back for the third.
The film production is scheduled to start in mid-summer, and "Ocean's 13" is due in theaters summer of 2007.

GEORGE CLOONEY confessed he played superhero BATMAN as a gay man in BATMAN AND ROBIN. The Oscar-nominee points to the caped superhero costume as a giveaway to BATMAN's sexuality. He reveals, "I was in a rubber suit. I had rubber nipples. I could have played him straight but I didn't. I made him gay."
Renee Zellweger and George Clooney — who dated years ago — were huddled together in a corner of The Dorchester hotel, knocking back champagne cocktails until 5am.
After being thrown out by the barman so he could close up, the pair went giggling down a corridor clutching a bottle of champagne, back to a private hotel suite.SEE MORE PICTURES OF RENEE ZELLWEGER

Joe Maddalena of the auction house Profiles in History says he plans to sell off Clooney's costume from the 1997 "Batman & Robin" movie that some fans list as among the worst ever made.The auction will be held on March 31 along with several other costumes from the film.
Maddalena said the latex body suit contains all sorts of extras -- nipples, a cape and a cowl, gloves, bat ears and a utility belt.
But the auctioneer said that the costume would probably have sold for about $30,000 two or three years ago when Clooney was less of a star than he is now.
The actor/director/screenwriter is up for three Oscars: best supporting actor in "Syriana," best director for "Good Night, and Good Luck" and best original screenplay as coauthor of the "Good Night" script.
"Clooney is hot. He is the leader of an unofficial Rat Pack. People have fallen in love with him. He is the bad boy we always love. The nominations also help," Maddalena said on Thursday.
The Batman costume has the highest estimate in the auction which will consist of about 600 items from different films. Maddalena thinks he might get a shipment of costumes from "Star Wars" that will even outshine Clooney's bright star.
