The team behind the upcoming movie “Ocean’s Thirteen” is uniting to form a new non-profit organisation aimed at helping relief efforts in war-torn Darfur.

Leading actors George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, and Don Cheadle and producer Jerry Weintraub will launch the Not On Our Watch organisation at a benefit party on May 22nd in Cannes, two days before the movie’s première at the city’s famous film festival.

The U.S. première will take place in Los Angeles on June 5th, after which the extended cast will travel to Las Vegas for a further benefit showing at the CineVegas film festival.

Finally, the crew will travel to Chicago for a third benefit preem hosted by Vanity Fair.

In a press release about the launch events Weintraub stated, “It was such a privilege to reunite with Steven Soderbergh and an amazing cast to make Ocean’s Thirteen. I am very proud of the film, and I am excited about premiering the film in multiple cities across the country. However, the thing I am most proud of by far is that these events will benefit a cause that is very important to me and my colleagues.”

The cast members are no strangers to philanthropy, and prior to co-founding Not On Our Watch, Don Cheadle co-authored a book of the same name with human rights activist John Prendergast, offering background information about the Darfur crisis and how the public can help.
