They’ve pulled together a great cast for Ocean’s Eight, which will reboot the Ocean’s Eleven franchise with a largely female cast. However, ET reveals that at least one member of the earlier cast will be showing up, with Matt Damon confirming he’s set to shoot a cameo.
He says, “I’m doing a little bit in the movie. I haven’t read it yet, but the cast is phenomenal and I’m excited to see what those women do with it. It’s going to be fun.”
Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina will be the titular eight, who stage a complex heist centred on the annual New York Met Gala Ball. It’s also been reported that Bullock’s character is a relative of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean, but it’s not known if Clooney himself will be involved at all.
Hunger Games helmer Gary Ross should start shooting the movie either later this year or early next year in New York. Steven Soderbergh, who directed the Ocean’s 11 trilogy, will produce.
