Expect to see "a little bit" of Matt Damon in Gary Ross' Ocean's Eight, the women-led continuation of the heist comedy franchise. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight at Monday's Manchester by the Sea premiere, Damon revealed he's currently preparing to join the production for what sounds like a cameo, though he hasn't peeped an actual script just yet.
"I'm doing a little bit in the movie," Damon told ET. "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 Ocean's Eight cast currently includes Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina.
Ross, who previously directed the excellent Pleasantville and the not-so-excellent Free State of Jones, has promised the film will follow the tone set forth by previous Ocean's helmer Steven Soderbergh. "You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren't," Ross told Slash Film back in June. "I don't think he would've wanted anyone to do it if we weren't. This is very much an extension and a continuation. He's a producer on the movie. In one way or another, this has been a 20-year conversation between Steven and I, collaborating in ways the whole world doesn't know about."
Ocean's Eight, which recently inspired a serious coat discussion after paparazzi caught some on-set photos of Bullock and Blanchett, is currently slated for a June 2018 release.
