George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon have reportedly collaborated on the new ‘Ocean’ movie
The Hollywood trio had already come together in 2007 for a third film, “Ocean’s Thirteen”. They will now reunite for a possible starring role in a fourth installment.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Rumors of a film starring George, Brad and Matt have been floating around for years but the timing wasn’t right and their hectic schedules just made it impossible.”
“Eventually the film crew came together on this part to try and make it a big hit, and the main stars thought it would be fun to revisit.”
“The franchise is very popular and the story is brilliant, it was a great opportunity.”
Matt, 51, has previously confirmed he’s ready to play for the incredible franchise again. However, he insisted that the future of the franchise was in the hands of director Steven Soderbergh.
Matt, who played con artist Linus Caldwell in the ‘Ocean’s’ trilogy, said: “It will always be up to Steven Soderbergh if there will be a sequel.”
The actor also admitted the situation was complicated by the deaths of his late co-stars Bernie Mac, who died in 2008 at the age of 50, and Carl Reiner, who died in 2020 at the age of 98.
Matt described the old cast as a “weakened bunch”.
He explained: “We’ve lost a few of our members so we have to find a solution – our band is weakened.”
As for Don Cheadle, he had reportedly previously hinted that there would be no sequel.
The actor, who played Basher Tarr, said, “We talked about it and then Bernie came over and pretty soon we were like, ‘No, we don’t want to do that.’
