George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Scott Caan, Casey Affleck, Carl Reiner, Eddie JemisonShaobo Qin and Elliott Gould engaged in some highly lucrative heists over the course of OCEAN'S ELEVEN, OCEAN'S TWELVE and OCEAN'S THIRTEEN, but the time has arrived for a whole new team to pull off a brand-new heist. Production on OCEAN'S EIGHT got underway in New York in October, but there are still a few casting announcements to be had.

Variety has reported that Damian Lewis, who has been spotted on the set recently, has joined the cast of OCEAN'S EIGHT as the villain and target of the OCEAN'S EIGHT team. Sandra Bullock stars in the film as the leader of a group of thieves and cons who try to pull off a major heist. Damian Lewis' character is Bullock's ex-lover as well as the target of the gang's robbery. In addition to Bullock, the OCEAN'S EIGHT team also includes Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Awkwafina and Sarah Paulson. Although it had been reported that none of the original OCEAN'S cast would return in order to help OCEAN'S EIGHT stand on its own, it was later revealed that Matt Damon would be reprising his role of Linus Caldwell in the Gary Ross (THE HUNGER GAMES) flick.

OCEAN'S EIGHT will hit theaters on June 8, 2018.
