Edward Norton May Play the Villain in "The Bourne Legacy"

Edward Norton May Play the Villain in "The Bourne Legacy"Posted: July 13th, 2011 by Staff

Variety has learned that Edward Norton (The Incredible Hulk) is in talks to play the villain in "The Bourne Legacy," which has Jeremy Renner playing the lead.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Jason Bourne will not be featured in the film, which means that Matt Damon will also not make an appearance. Instead, Renner will play another assassin trained in the same program that Bourne was trained in.

Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton) is on board to direct from his own script. Rachel Weisz has also signed on to star. "The Bourne Legacy" is set to hit theaters on August 3rd, 2012.

Edward Norton in Talks to Play the Villain in THE BOURNE LEGACY

Director Tony Gilroy is looking to cast a big name as the villain in The Bourne Legacy, with Variety reporting that Edward Norton is now in negotiations to take on the role. After a lengthy casting search, the powers-that-be finally settled on Jeremy Renner take on the lead role in the Matt Damon-less reboot. Gilroy wrote the script for the film, which will take place in the same universe as the first three Bourne Identity flicks, though the character of Jason Bourne will be absent (which pretty much renders the “Bourne” in the title moot, save for franchise recognition). Rachel Weisz is also onboard to star in the film. Hit the jump for more.
