“Bourne” sequel bringing back Joan Allen, Albert Finney


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Matt Damon might not be returning to the “Bourne” franchise, which he carried for three thrilling films, but the ice-cold bureaucrats hot on the amnesic spy’s tail will stay the same.

Joan Allen and Albert Finney are negotiating to play government agents pursuing Jason Bourne as he fights to complete his next mission, THR reports. Instead of Damon, though, they’ll be tracking Jeremy Renner, who is set to assume the lead role in the fourth film of the still-bustling franchise.

Renner isn’t the only fresh face. Behind the camera, Tony Gilroy (who wrote the first three “Bourne” films) has signed on to direct, so you can see why he’d want to keep some familiar talent around the franchise.

But Gilroy, who wrote the new “Bourne” script, is casting great actors in support. “The Bourne Legacy” has lured Rachel Weisz, Oscar Isaac and Edward Norton in, reportedly, the villainous role.

As of right now, “The Bourne Legacy” is due in theaters on Aug. 3, 2012.
