Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner just bagged cameos in the forthcoming Ocean's Eight. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars were spotted in New York City Monday night shooting a scene "set at the star-studded Met Gala," E! Newsreported Tuesday. Kardashian and Jenner, of course, regularly attend the Gala in real life.
The all-woman Ocean's Eleven continuation stars Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Paling, Awkwafina, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, and some guy named James Corden. According toDeadline, Richard Armitage—aka Thorin from The Hobbit—officially signed on for the presumed blockbuster Tuesday. His exact role, however, is being closely guarded by all involved with the production.
Kardashian and Jenner also aren't alone when it comes to top-shelf cameos. Anna Wintour, Alexander Wang, Zac Posen, and Katie Holmes are all reportedly slated to pop in at some point. Even Matt Damon, who played noted pickpocket Linus Caldwell in the previous Ocean's trilogy, is stopping by for some nostalgia. "I'm doing a little bit in the movie," Damon toldEntertainment Tonight in November. "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."
Ocean's Eight, directed by directed by Pleasantville boss Gary Ross, is due in 2018. According to Ross, fans of the Clooney classics should expect a similar tone with his entry. "You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren't," he toldSlash Film last 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."
