Hollywood hunk George Clooney will earn an astonishing $54 million (GBP30 million) for the sequel to the blockbuster OCEAN'S ELEVEN.

Yet the actor turned director will only see $18 million (GBP10 million) in his bank for OCEAN'S TWELVE - the other $36 million (GBP20 million) will be given to the funding for his next film project SYRINA.

Syrina is based on See No Evil, the memoirs of former CIA (CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY) operative Robert Bauer and claims that meddling by "WHITE HOUSE and PENTAGON pen-pushers" sealed the fate of the thousands that died in the tragic 9/11 terrorist heist in September 2001.

Filming for the Ocean's Eleven sequel is due to start this April (04) and will star Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Andy Garcia and MATT DAMON.
