    NEW BOURNE LEGACY CASTING HAVE JOAN ALLEN AND ALBERT FINNEY BACK


    The fourth Bourne movie has been planned at the Universal Pictures for quite some time now. At the moment, the project will move on without the enrollment of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. Although the star has opt not to return, Universal Pictures' plan to move on with the project has caused plenty of speculations that it might be going for a reboot or something else. Then, Jeremy Renner was cast as the lead role to play another assassin from the same CIA's dirty project that gave birth to Bourne. Today, the latest has it all confirms about its continuity status in the Bourne franchise when Joan Allen and Albert Finney are cast for the new one as well. Details right after the jump.

    While Matt Damon is out, the other franchise stars - Joan Allen and Albert Finney will be reprising their roles in this one, thus providing continuity in the story that takes audiences into the dark secret of Operation Threadstone. The operation was initiated to nurture an assassin for CIA but requires brain-washing training to do so. Joan Allen was Pam Landy, a sympathizer for Bourne and a CIA agent; while Albert Finney was Dr Albert Hirsch, the man responsible for the program.

    Tony Gilroy directs and writes the fourth adventure of Bourne movie - but not about Jason Bourne, a character Matt Damon popularized into a pop culture since 2002. Instead, this new movie will focus on Jeremy Renner's character who was been trained under the same program with Bourne. The movie has also cast Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton in a villain character and Oscar Isaac, for roles in the movie. With the addition of Allen and Finney, the fourth round looks more like an expansion than a total reboot.

    "The Bourne Legacy" will arrive on August 3, 2012.
