Scott Glenn, last seen trying to get out of Sucker Punch with his dignity intact, has signed on for two more films. First up, he’ll be joining fellow Bourne alums Joan Allen and Albert Finney in Tony Gilroy’s re-launch of the series, The Bourne Legacy. The movie doesn’t actually feature Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) but has Jeremy Renner as another alumnus of the Treadstone program. Glenn will reprise his role as CIA director Ezra Kramer. The Bourne Legacy also stars Rachel Weisz, Oscar Isaac, Stacy Keach, with Edward Norton playing the villain. Universal plans to release the film on August 3, 2012.
Variety also reports that Glenn will play newspaper chief W.W. James in Lee Daniels’ adaptation of The Paperboy. The movie stars “Matthew McConaughey as a reporter who returns to his Florida hometown to investigate a case involving a death row inmate played by John Cusack.”
