Ocean’s Eight to Feature James Corden
The crime-caper spinoff movie will follow a group of thieves’ grand heist in New York City. Headed by Bullock, the group will be executing their plan but Corden’s character will thwart them. The host will play as an insurance investigator.
Despite being mostly known as a TV host, Corden is no beginner in movies. He has appeared in The Lady In The Van and Begin Again. The actor also starred in the movies like Into The Woods alongside Academy Award Winner Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt. He has also voiced the characters in Trolls, The Emoji Movie, and Peter Rabbit.
Corden is the host for The Late Late Show With James Corden, Variety said in a report. He is also slated to host the 59th Grammy Awards on February 12 this year, Sunday. The popular host of the Carpool Karaoke has also recorded tracks with singers Dizzee Rascal and Kylie Minogue.
Damian Lewis as Sandra Bullock’s Ex Lover
Also in the movie is the Billions actor Damian Lewis who will play as Bullock’s ex-lover. The group of thieves will try to get back at Lewis as he is their target for the heist.
The movie is the fourth movie under the Oceans series. The previous movies featured a star-studded cast like George Clooney and Brad Pitt. The film will celebrate the 17 years of Steven Soderbergh’s trilogy that inspired its production.
According to Gary Ross, the film will be “very much an extension and a continuation” of the previous movies. Ocean’s Eight is set to hit the big screens on June 8, 2018.
