Matt Damon has expressed his enthusiasm for his cameo role in the upcoming Ocean?s Eight movie. Ocean?s Eight is basically an all female featuring movie, but Damon, who previously appeared in all three Ocean?s movies, said he?s all set to join the installment again.

Ocean?s Eight is joined by actresses Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna and Awkwafina. Despite Damon?s limited idea on his role in the Ocean?s Eight movie, he did not hesitate to say yes to it. In an interview with the Hollywood actor, he said ?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.”

According to the ComicBook, Matt Damon is set to reprise his role as a skilled pickpocket who eventually wounds his way within the circle and makes himself a core element to the success of the group. Ocean?s Eight is directed by Gary Ross, who also co-wrote the script with Olivia Milch.

The Ocean?s franchise originated in 1960 and was later revived in 2001 with George Clooney and Brad Pitt holding the ropes. The two dynamic Hollywood actors were joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia, Matt Damon, Elliott Gould, Bernie Mack, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Shaobo Qin and Carl Reiner.

Additional Characters

Additional characters in the Ocean?s Eight movie include Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis and Eric West. The spinoff of the Ocean?s Trilogy is all set to release on June 8, 2018. In an interview with director Ross featured on DenofGeek, he revealed how the movie may set a little bit farther from the original one. He said ?We?re different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I?m drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I?m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I?m thrilled and honoured to be extending it. It?s really fun to work with.?
