Damian Lewis Is The Target In 'Ocean's Eight'

While it may be billed as the "all-female" Ocean's Eleven spinoff, or just Ocean's Eight, there will be a handful of dudes running around. There's the possibility of George Clooney reprising his prior role as Danny Ocean, and we know Matt Damon is returning for a cameo as pickpocket Linus Caldwell. And now the film's villain will find the ladies trying to rob Homeland's Damian Lewis.

Variety reports Lewis will play the bad guy, an ex-lover of Sandra Bullock's character and the apparent target of her scorn. Bullock will lead a cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sarah Paulson as they try to pull of a major heist that will hurt Lewis' character. Previous reports had them trying to steal a necklace from the Met Ball, but it's unclear what his connection to that crime will be. Maybe he's like the head of security there or something?

Directed by  Gary Ross, Ocean's Eight opens June 8th 2018.
