A great cast including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina has already been lined up to be the female thieves in Ocean’s Eight. However, the heist team needs someone to go up against, and now they’ve found them in the form of Damian Lewis.
Variety reports that he’s in final talks to play the villain in the movie. Plot details are still being kept secret, so it’s not known exactly what Lewis will be doing, but he’ll presumably be causing trouble for Bullock and co. Dakota Johnson also stars, while Matt Damon is reported to be making a cameo, to help connect the film to the other Ocean’s movie.
Hunger Games helmer Gary Ross recently started shooting the movie New York. Steven Soderbergh, who directed the Ocean’s 11 trilogy, will produce.
