Joan Allen and Albert Finney to Return for THE BOURNE LEGACY

     July 26, 2011


While writer/director Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy may be a sort of spin-off of the franchise, the film won’t be without some familiar faces. Showblitz reports that Joan Allen and Albert Finney are currently in negotiations to reprise their roles in the new film. Jeremy Renner stars in Legacy as an operative trained in the same program that housed the first trilogy’s title character played by Matt Damon.

Allen appeared in The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum as a CIA agent attempting to capture Damon’s character, while Finney played a doctor employed by the government program in Ultimatum. New faces alongside Renner in Legacy include Rachel Weisz and Oscar Issacs, with Edward Norton still in talks to play the villain of the film. The Bourne Legacy opens August 3rd, 2012.

    WOW, what a cast this film has. As a fan of the first 3 films, I’m definitely looking forward to this even without Matt Damon. Speaking of Damon, I think he would be a fool to turn down a cameo role in this film and possibly star in the next one.

    This isn’t a reboot. Tony Gilroy said Bourne won’t be in the movie but he’s very much alive, and that the first three films trigger what happens in this movie and what happens in this movie will invite Jason Bourne to appear in future movies possibly the one after Legacy. So reboot isn’t the word to use.

      You’re right, I’ve updated the article for clarity. I didn’t mean to mislead anyone into thinking Damon’s Bourne isn’t still a part of this universe. Thanks!

        No problem, I figured it was just an honest mistake, keep up the good work Adam!

    Gilroy is a real talent so this isn’t just a hack’s sequel.(haven’t seen Duplicity but Michael Clayton is one hell of a thriller. GREAT FILM!).

    Damon could come in the end with a cameo. if he still wants to be part of the franchise. he has said he won’t return without Greengrass, but Greengrass just doesn’t seem interested in the franchise anymore. while Damon is STILL REALLY REALLY interested. a conflict of interest between the two.

    I want to see also the excellent Brian Cox, even if he is a ghost. ^^

    And what’s about the music ? will John Powell work on this sequel ?

    The thing is all I’m seeing is basically Bourne 2.0… which would in my worthless opinion be boring and stale as all hell. We’ve been done that arch before and to great effect before. To rehash the same ideas, I can’t help but taste the tiny bit of vomit you get in your mouth when something really disgusts you.
