George Clooney and Julia Roberts are set to reunite for Ticket to Paradise, a new romantic comedy from Mamma Mia! Here Go Again director Ol Parker.

The upcoming movie, which will start shooting later this year, will see the stars play a divorced couple who team up and travel to Bali to stop their daughter making the same mistake they think they made 25 years ago.

Of course, Clooney and Roberts previously starred together in the Ocean's Eleven films, as well as the Jodie Foster-directed Money Monster. Both stars will also serve as producers on the movie.

Further casting details are yet to be announced, as the project is still in the early stages of development.

According to Deadline, various streaming platforms were interested in acquiring the rights to this Working Title production, but Universal has insisted that movie is intended for cinemas.

This isn't the only reunion Clooney is set for in the near future though. The actor is potentially joining up with his Argo co-star Ben Affleck for the new Amazon Studios movie The Tender Bar, as he's currently in talks to jump onboard.

The movie will see Affleck in the lead role, while Clooney could direct.

Oscar-winning screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed) is writing the script, which is based on JR Moehringer's memoir about growing up in Long Island and fishing for father figures at his uncle's bar.
