Matt Damon will play a small role in Ocean's Eight

11.15.2016

Cate Blanchett Sandra Bullock

The female-led OCEAN'S 11 spin-off has been filming in New York with Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock in the lead roles (as you can see above), but if you're worried that none of the original gang might show up, the following news may excite you. In speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Matt Damon confirmed that he WILL be playing a role in the film. Granted, it's probably not going to be a very large role, but that does give hope that some of the other players, like Clooney and Pitt, may show up as well. Take a look!

Matt Damon on OCEAN'S EIGHT:

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.

The cast, including Blanchett, Bullock, Elizabeth Banks, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mindy Kaling, is actually pretty damn cool. If you ask me, they should've just incorporated these actresses into OCEAN'S movies from the start instead of doing a complete spin-off, but that's just my two cents. Either way, I'm certainly interested to see what a first trailer will yield.

OCEAN'S EIGHT is scheduled to hit theaters on June 8, 2018.

Oh, this is actually happening, I didn't even know.
I feel this is insulting to viewers that we get a rehash reboot / sequel idea that's never original. And insulting to women that these talented actresses get the second stab at what were successful franchises.

Why aren't women shitcanning ideas like this?

Seriously, here's the pitch from the studio: "Hey ladies, now that we've shown that a concept works for men, at least in 2 or 3 movies, we thought we'd completely rehash the idea and let you sexy gals take a shot at acting just like the men do. Whaddya say? Do you cuties wanna take on big grown up movie ideas like the Men do? C'mon, it'll be a hoot, and you can pretend to be actors just like the Men are..."

Unoriginal.

Are there no original scripts in Hollywood anymore? changing white male characters into females or minorities doesn't make it a good movie. If you want a minority or female driven movie, great just make it original and stop trying to piggyback off established franchises and characters. Perhaps we should remake of the movie boys in the hood and Call it boys in the burbs, with white characters. Perhaps remake shaft starring Tom Hanks. Or a remake of steel magnolias with dudes. I wish

I wish Hollywood would have more original idea screenplays and less mega budget cgi action movies with questionable Results. But what do I know about Hollywood ideas I'm just your average deplorable American male

At least Damon will be playing the same character from the previous trilogy unlike what the original cast did for the new Ghostbusters film.

That was never a possibility. This was never refered to as a remake, like GHOSTBUSTERS was.
