Julia Roberts to reunite with George Clooney in Money Monster

Julia Roberts has been tapped to reunite with her Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney in a new financial drama directed by Jodie Foster.

Clooney is set to star as TV stockbroking personality Lee Gates, who is held hostage alongside his whole Money Monster show team over a bad tip, and now Roberts is in talks to play his producer.


British newcomer Jack O'Connell, the star of Angelina Jolie's forthcoming drama Unbroken, has also entered negotiations as the gun-crazed hostage taker.


If Roberts signs on, it will mark her first project with Clooney in a decade after previously appearing as his ex-wife in the first two instalments of the Ocean's trilogy, released in 2001 and 2004.


Money Monster is due for release next year (15).
