Variety has reported that Edward Norton is close to being confirmed as the new villain for the upcoming film The Bourne Legacy. The American History X actor looks likely to star opposite new lead man Jeremy Renner who was confirmed a few weeks ago as the new protagonist in the film that will be set in the same world as the first three but will not include Jason Bourne. Small villainous roles should come easy to Norton by now after films such as The Italian Job.
Rachel Weisz has also signed up to the film and if Norton comes on board it looks to be a relatively
star-studded reinvention of the Bourne films. Whether it will attract the same level of popularity that the Damon films did remains to be seen.
The Bourne Legacy is set to be released on 3rd August 2012.
Will the new film rival the previous three? Can the story continue without Damon on board? Let us know below.
