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.
