'Ocean’s Eight' Villain Revealed
Damien Lewis will play the baddie in the Ocean's Eleven spinoff.
The all-female Ocean’s Eleven spin-off, Ocean’s Eight, just confirmed who will be playing the villain of the piece, and wouldn’t you just know it? He’s a MAN. But not just any man… that’s right, it’s Homeland star and ginger-heartthrob-in-chief, Damien Lewis.
Lewis will play the former flame of Sandra Bullock’s character in the new film, making him the prime target of her merry band of scammers, thieves and con-artists. And in case you haven’t been paying attention, Bullock’s gang is quite the lineup, with Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina and Mindy Kaling all on board and ready for action.
We don’t know much more than that when it comes to plot details, although it’s probably safe to say that the caper is pretty heavily based on revenge. Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned, except for a woman scorned and her seven badass friends…
Directed by Gary Ross and with Matt Damon set to pop up in a cameo role, Ocean’s Eight will open in the US on 8 June 2018, with a UK date to be confirmed.
