Tommy Lee Jones Joins Bourne 5

28 July 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Universal preps the untitled fifth Bourne movie to go before cameras later this summer, it’s been revealed that Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones is joining the cast.

Variety was the first to report the news, noting that Jones may play a senior officer at the CIA. Matt Damon is returning to topline as amnesiac assassin Jason Bourne, with Julia Stiles also expected to come aboard and reprise the role of covert agent Nicky Parsons.

Alicia Vikander, who broke out in a big way earlier this year playing artificially intelligent android Ava in Ex Machina, is also in talks to come aboard in the lead female role opposite Damon.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Viggo Mortensen (the Lord of the Rings trilogy) was at one point being courted for the role of an assassin hunting Bourne around the globe in the wake of The Bourne Ultimatum. »

Brie Larson Joins Kong: Skull Island; Man Of Steel's Russell Crowe Eyed For Role

23 July 2015 11:44 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Deadline reports that Brie Larson is in talks for the lead female role in Legendary Pictures' Kong: Skull Island. She joins the already confirmed Tom Hiddleston, the only actor not to bail on the project after Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons decided it wasn't for them due to reported scheduling conflicts (we've heard that before). Regardless, the site adds that Russell Crowe is being eyed to replace one of them, so it looks set to still have a very impressive ensemble. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing from a script by John Gatins and Max Borenstein (though Tony Gilroy is apparently working on a new draft right now), and it's set to be released on March 10th, 2017. »

Brie Larson Starring Opposite Tom Hiddleston in ‘Kong: Skull Island’

23 July 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brie Larson is in talks to join Tom Hiddleston in Legendary’s King Kong origin tale “Kong: Skull Island.”

Legendary is also interested in Russell Crowe replacing J.K. Simmons, who recently left the project, but sources say Crowe has not even read a script, let alone agreed to join the project.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is on board to direct the film, which focuses on the giant gorilla’s mysterious and dangerous world — something previous films have only touched on. Tony Gilroy did the most recent polish to the script, which was first penned by “Godzilla” scribe Max Bornstein. Mary Parent, Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing the movie, which hits theaters on March 10, 2017.

After her breakthrough role in “21 Jump Street,” Larson has stuck to more dramatic films, including her critically acclaimed performance in “Short Term 12.” This film would mark her first major tentpole, as well as her first big action pic, »

Julia Stiles Joins Matt Damon for New 'Bourne' Movie in 2016

19 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yes! Cue another round of Moby's "Extreme Ways" 'cause Jason Bourne is back -- and he's bringing an old friend with him. According to Deadline, Matt Damon is not only back as Bourne for his fourth movie (the third with director Paul Greengrass) but Julia Stiles is confirmed to return as Nicky Parsons. They are the only official cast members so far, although Deadline said Alicia Vikander was being sought for a major role and Variety said Viggo Mortensen may or may not play an assassin. Deadline also said -- and we agree -- that they hoped Joan Allen would return as Pam Landy.

The first movie, "The Bourne Identity" came out in 2002, followed by more Damon dominance in 2004's "The Bourne Supremacy." Damon returned again for "The Bourne Ultimatum" in 2007, but then the focus shifted to Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross in "The Bourne Legacy." That one was »

Jon Hamm’s Next Move Will Be High Wire Act

6 May 2015 8:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jon Hamm's first post–Mad Men move will be to star in Tony Gilroy's political action-thriller High Wire Act, Deadline reports. Transitioning from the ad offices of 1960s New York to 1980s war-torn Beirut, Hamm will play a former U.S. diplomat called to rescue a colleague "from the group possibly responsible for his own family’s death." (Oooh, cryptic!) "Jon Hamm was made to play the part," Gilroy has said in a statement. Brad Anderson is set to direct and has said that the project has many of the John le Carré–esque themes he loves, such as political intrigue, betrayal, and reluctant heroes. (A little more specific, but still pretty cryptic!) Well, color us both intrigued and happy for Hamm — especially after the whole Gone Girl thing. »

Jon Hamm Plans High Wire Act

6 May 2015 5:52 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If you’re a sales company headed to the Cannes film market with a movie to push, it helps if you can put together a package including a couple of name actors and a director with some traction. Good Universe thinks it might be on to a winner with High Wire Act, a new action thriller that boasts Jon Hamm attached to the lead and The Call’s Brad Anderson directing.And, as a bonus, the script comes from Michael Clayton’s Tony Gilroy, once more bubbling up a politically infused tale of deception and danger. In this case, Hamm will be a former Us diplomat in 1980s Beirut who saw his family killed by a violent group. Now the same people are threatening one of his colleagues, and he’ll have to be the one to save them. There’s no schedule for the film to start shooting yet. »

6 May 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

With Mad Men coming to a close later this month, viewers have been wondering what the man behind Don Draper will do next.  While I for one had hoped Jon Hamm would go all out and do a full-on, international campaign for Jon Hamm's John Ham, a product most office lavatories the world over are in desperate need of, the guy has opted for a feature film in the genre of political thriller instead.Helmed by Brad Anderson(Session 9) and penned/produced by Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Series), High Wire Act sees Hamm as a former diplomat who is tasked to help free a former colleague from a terrorist group in 1980s Beirut. And said terrorist group may or may not have killed Hamm's family. This all...
