Jake Gyllenhaal up for Jason Bourne role in next film?
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Now that every young actor under the sun has been cast in a superhero franchise – from Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern) and Chris Evans (Captain America) to Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man) and Henry Cavill (Superman) – Hollywood has to turn its attentions to another male-dominated franchise in hopes of getting it back off the ground.
That would be the dormant “Bourne” series, which is hoping to jumpstart production under the watchful eye of “Michael Clayton” director Tony Gilroy now that Paul Greengrass and his Jason Bourne – Matt Damon – have moved on.
But who will plug into Damon’s part? The list of potential spies is inevitable, with most of the expected names and faces surfacing in a report posted on Deadline. Joel Edgerton, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Fassbender seems to make sense. Other names, like Tobey Maguire or Paul Dano, do not make sense at all. But Mike Fleming reports that Gilroy will narrow down his list “quickly,” so we may have a new Bourne on our hands before we know it.
