Snack Attack: Sandra Bullock and Rihanna Chow on Hot Dogs on the Set of Ocean’s Eight

8 December 2016 9:27 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

They’re currently filming one of the most anticipated flicks of 2018 — but even Sandra Bullock and Rihanna need to eat!

The Oscar winner and the Grammy winner chowed down on hot dogs and fries at the popular Big Apple fast food chain Papaya King on Wednesday, while shooting Ocean’s Eight in New York City.

The A-list stars appeared to be in costume at they ate — suggesting the meal was a planned scene for the upcoming all-female version of Ocean’s Eleven. The actresses even shared a pair of white earbuds plugged into a transmitter device — the perfect technology used when on a heist. »

Ocean’s 8 Finds Its Villain In Damian Lewis

7 December 2016 6:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a period of speculation, it seems that Homeland star Damian Lewis has joined the cast of the upcoming franchise spin off, Ocean’s 8, and will appear as the villain of the piece. With the director of the original Ocean’s trilogy – Steven Soderbergh – on board as producer, the writer-director of this new instalment is Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Pleasantville), with Olivia Milch co-writing.

The project is already shooting in New York City and features an all-star female cast, including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Akwkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. The character played by Sandra Bullock is essentially the lead, in the same way that George Clooney was the lead in Ocean’s Eleven – while Blanchett plays her ‘deputy’ (equivalent to Brad Pitt in the earlier film).

Damian Lewis is now confirmed to play the former lover of Bullock, and the target of her next heist. »

Damian Lewis joins Ocean’s Eight as villain

7 December 2016 2:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It appears that the ladies of Ocean’s Eight have zeroed in on their heist target, as Variety claims that Homeland actor Damian Lewis is in final negotiations to play the main antagonist and ex-lover of Sandra Bullock’s character in the upcoming all-female Ocean’s Eleven spinoff.

By the sound of it, Lewis will be taking on a role not unlike that of Andy Garcia’s Terry Benedict in much of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy. Originally, it was believed that the actor would only be making a cameo in the film after he was spotted on set, but it soon became clear that his role was much larger than that.

Since leaving Homeland after three seasons with an Emmy and Golden Globe for Best Actor – Drama in his hands, Lewis has been working steadily, starring in such TV projects as Wolf Hall and Billions. Billions drew in »

Matt Damon will make a cameo in Ocean’s Eight

16 November 2016 12:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matt Damon, while speaking with Et to promote his latest effort as a producer, Manchester by the Sea, revealed the answer to a major question that has been on everyone’s mind since Gary Ross’ Ocean’s Eight was announced: will any of the original cast members from Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven trilogy return?

When asked about his thoughts on Ocean’s Eight, the Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen actor 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.”

If Damon is briefly reprising his role as Linus Caldwell, it begs the question of which other members of Danny Ocean’s crew might pop up in the film. Surely fans would be excited to see cameos from »

Matt Damon Will Return for Ocean's Eight Cameo

15 November 2016 10:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When news first broke that George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh were developing an all-female spin-off of the Ocean's Eleven franchise, there was talk that George Clooney could possible return in a cameo as Danny Ocean. The movie was long confirmed to be set in the same universe as the original trilogy, and it was later revealed that Sandra Bullock is actually playing the ex-con sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean. While it is believed that George Clooney won't put in a cameo for this movie, it seems that his co-star Matt Damon is planning on returning as Linus Caldwell.

Entertainment Tonight caught up with Matt Damon at the premiere of Manchester-by-the-Sea, which he produced, where he revealed that he will have a brief part in Ocean's Eight. While he didn't specify that he's coming back as Linus Caldwell, since this movie is set in the same world as the previous trilogy, »

Will Matt Damon Hold A Cameo Role In Ocean’s Eight?

15 November 2016 7:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though speculation is rife that either George Clooney or Brad Pitt – or both! – will hold a small role in 2018’s female-fronted sequel Ocean’s Eight, another star from Steven Soderbergh’s original trilogy could swing by for a cameo.

Word comes by way of Entertainment Tonight, who quizzed Matt Damon about the Gary Ross-directed crime caper, which is now filming on the streets of NYC. During the interview, The Martian star dropped hints that his Ocean‘s character, Linus Caldwell, may crop up at some point during Ocean’s Eight after all. Neither Ross nor the studio has openly confirmed Damon’s involvement, so treat this one with heightened caution for now.

Assuming that Ocean’s Eight does feature characters from the original trilogy, it would align with Ross’ previous comments about the spinoff being more of a “continuation” of the story as opposed to a fully-fledged reboot, and »
