Julia Stiles Returning for BOURNE 5; Viggo Mortensen Tipped for Villain Role

The Fifth Movie Installment

While Universal pushed back the fifth Bourne movie installment from July 15, 2016 to that July 29, 2016 date, casting on the film is underway. Director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon will return to the franchise after they took a break while Jeremy Renner starring in The Bourne Legacy for Tony Gilroy.

It has been rumored Alicia Vikander was up for another role in the film as of a few weeks ago. Now Deadline brings word that Julia Stiles, who appeared in the first three Bourne films, will be back once again as CIA agent Nicky Parsons. Moreover, Variety adds that Viggo Mortensen has been offered a role as the film’s villain. I’m happy with that, but I find it hard to picture Viggo accepting it though.

Rumored For Bourne 5

Plot details are unknown at this time. Greengrass is writing the screenplay with Christopher Rouse. Filming on the new Bourne is slated to begin later this year in London. Hopefully it won’t suck like the previous four films.
