With Paul Greengrass, Matt Damon and, more recently, Julia Stiles reported as back on Bourne duty for the new instalment, it’s time to start tracking down other cast members. Tommy Lee Jones is the latest announced actor aboard, looking to bring his particular brand of gruff grumpiness to a role. He’s joining a cast that already includes Damon (back as Jason Bourne), Stiles (Nicky Parsons) and Alicia Vikander (an unknown new character) for a film with a plot being predictably kept quiet. How Jones will fit in is also largely to be discovered, though Variety has heard whispers that he’ll be some sort of CIA official, along the lines of David Strathairn or Brian Cox in previous films. Naturally, he may end up looking for Bourne, so what he’ll want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, »

While Universal Pictures and the filmmakers still haven't decided on an official title for the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, the cast continues to grow. Variety reports that Tommy Lee Jones has signed on for Bourne 5, portraying a "superior officer at the CIA." The role is being compared to the characters played by Chris Cooper, David Strathairn, Brian Cox and Edward Norton in the first four Bourne movies.

We reported last month that Viggo Mortensen was being sought to portray the main villain, but his involvement has never been confirmed yet. Universal is also moving forward with a separate sequel for 2012's The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, but producer Frank Marshall has confirmed that there are no current plans for Jason Bourne »

Tommy Lee Jones will reportedly play "a superior officer at the CIA" in the upcoming Bourne sequel bringing Matt Damon back as Jason Bourne and Paul Greengrass to direct following the less than stellar response to The Bourne Legacy. Not much is known about the film so far other than the fact Damon is back as Bourne, Julia Stiles is back as Nicky and Alicia Vikander is joining the feature as an unknown character while Viggo Mortensen's name has been rumored for a villain role. Jones' role is expected to be along the same lines as those played by Edward Norton, Chris Cooper, Brian Cox and David Strathairn in past Bourne features. The film is currently slated for a July 29, 2016 release with production expected to begin later this summer. Variety »

While Tommy Lee Jones may present himself as a Serious Person who is a Serious Actor and thus will only star in Serious Things, his recent filmography would suggest otherwise. He already carries one franchise under his name with "Men In Black," and he hasn't been afraid to participate in material that's quite unlike him (see "The Family"). Next year, he even has a role in "Mechanic: Resurrection". But some have commented that the 'Bourne' series is smarter than most tentpole fare, so perhaps that was the attraction for this next move. Variety reports that Jones has joined Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, and Julia Stiles in "Bourne 5." The role is being kept under wraps, but of course, the trade says he'll probably be playing someone in the CIA. That comes as no surprise, considering 75% of the speaking parts in these movies usually are. Paul Greengrass is back to direct and »

Cameras are set to be unpacked shortly on the fifth movie in the Bourne movie series, and crucially the film that will bring Matt Damon back into the franchise. He'll be playing Jason Bourne for the fourth time in the new movie, with his character having being talked about extensively in The Bourne Legacy, which starred Jeremy Renner. A separate Bourne film that'll see the return of Renner is being developed separately.
Furthermore, Damon is reuniting with The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass for the new film (they also worked together on Green Zone), which also has Alicia Vikander and Julia Stiles amongst its cast.
Variety now reports too that Tommy Lee Jones is to take on a role in the new Bourne film, although as you might expect, exact »

Tommy Lee Jones, over the course of his career, has played the stoic bureaucrat who has had to stop our hero (be it Will Smith, Harrison Ford or Chris Evans) from saving the day.

Tommy Lee Jones is joining Matt Damon in the new Jason Bourne movie. Jones boards Universal's untitled Bourne sequel that already sees rising female star Alicia Vikander and Bourne franchise player Julia Stiles on the roll call. Paul Greengrass is directing the action thriller that is in preproduction as it stares down a July 29, 2016 release date. Plot details are being kept as hazy as Bourne’s memory (although you can bet it will involve the former secret agent being on the run), but it is known that the script calls for an established actor in an authoritative bureaucratic role.

Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones has joined the upcoming "Bourne" sequel, according to a new report.
Variety writes that Jones is set to play a high-ranking CIA officer in the flick, which will reunite titular star Matt Damon with the hit action franchise. Damon last appeared in "The Bourne Ultimatum" in 2007, then turned the franchise over to Jeremy Renner in 2012 reboot "The Bourne Legacy."
Jones has plenty of experience in the action and thriller genres (his Academy Award-winning role in "The Fugitive" is just one of many shining examples), so he should fit in nicely with the "Bourne" crew, which also includes the returning Julia Stiles (like Damon, she starred in the first three flicks) and Alicia Vikander. Paul Greengrass, who helmed "The Bourne Supremacy" and "Ultimatum," is also on board for the new flick.
Variety reports that production on the new sequel -- which is still untitled -- is expected to begin this summer. »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »
