Ocean’s Eight, an all-female cast spin-off led by Sandra Bullock, was released in 2018.

However, Matt Damon expressed interest in another film during an interview on Good Morning America last year, but said the future of the franchise is down to director Steven Soderbergh.

He said, “It would always be up to Steven Soderbergh if there was a story.”

“We’ve lost a few of our members so we should find out, we’re an exhausted gang now.”

Matt was referring to actor Carl Reiner, who played Saul Bloom in the franchise, who passed away in 2020 at the age of 98.
