In the notes for IOC Version 3.4 (June 30, 2013) (scientific names added):

Crested Bellbird is related to Crested Pitohui [/Pitohui cristatus/] and Rufous-naped Whistler [/Aleadryas rufinucha/]; separate from Pachycephalidae to Incertae sedis 3, and perhaps new family Oreoicidae (TIF)

There's some more information on the Taxonomy In Flux Checklist (TIF) here:
