'Ocean's 8' Director Speaks to Why Matt Damon's Cameo Was Cut

Ocean’s 8 director Gary Ross, who also co-wrote the film, was asked about why Matt Damon‘s cameo was cut from the film.

Matt was supposed to reprise his role as Linus Caldwell from the original Ocean’s Eleven films in the female-led reboot, in theaters now.

“There were a lot of people who were gracious to us that just for editorial and storytelling reasons didn’t make it in and some who did,” Gary told THR. “If you know, we ended up shooting probably another 10 days afterwards, so there’s a lot of material and a lot of shaping. But it really just comes to storytelling.”
