Rachel Weisz in talks to join Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The movie I don’t think should be made, starring an actor I don’t think can carry his own action film, has just added one of my favorite actresses to the mix in Rachel Weisz. Assuming the deal gets done, Ms. Weisz will join Jeremy Renner in the upcoming Universal reboot of THE BOURNE LEGACY to be directed by Tony Gilroy. But it’s not really a reboot, it’s more of a sequel with a hint of re-imagining thrown in. In the film, Renner plays a new operative that’s from an even more dangerous government program than the one that produced Jason Bourne. Remember, folks; I don’t make the news, I just report it.
There’s no word on how this news will effect her participation in OZ: THE GREAT AND THE POWERFUL, which she was rumored to be starring in. It’s unlikely she’d be able to fit in both since each of them start filming around the same time.
