Are George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon Making Another ‘Ocean’s’ Movie?
Is there another Ocean’s movie on the horizon? Word has it that George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon are reuniting for a new Ocean’s film.
The Hollywood trio, who previously starred together in the 2007 heist movie, Ocean’s Thirteen, are now in talks to reunite for the latest film in the franchise.
A source confirmed to The Sun newspaper that: “Rumors of a film starring George, Brad and Matt have swirled for years but the timing was off and their jam-packed schedules meant that it was just not possible.”
“Finally the right team for the job has come together in a bid to make it a huge success. And the main stars thought it would be good fun to revisit,” the source added. “The franchise is hugely popular and the brilliant storyline was an opportunity that was too good to miss.”
Matt Damon Previously Confirmed He Was Open to More Ocean’s Movies
Damon, 51, has previously confirmed that he was open to starring in another Ocean’s film. However, he insisted that the future of the franchise was in the hands of director Steven Soderbergh.
“It would always be up to Steven Soderbergh if there was a story.” Damon has said.
He also conceded that the situation was complicated by the deaths of his late co-stars, Bernie Mac, who passed away in 2008, aged 50, and Carl Reiner, who died in 2020, aged 98.
Damon described the cast of the franchise as a “depleted gang”, noting, “We have lost a couple of our members. So we would have to figure it out. We are a depleted gang now.”
Meanwhile, Don Cheadle previously suggested that he won’t make another Ocean’s movie.
The actor – who played the part of Basher Tarr – said: “We were talking about it. And then Bernie passed. And very quickly we were like, ‘No, we don’t want to do it.'”
