Vincent Cassel set to battle Matt Damon as Paul Greengrass returns to 'Bourne'

23 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the things that distinguishes the Jason Bourne films from the much lighter tone of the James Bond movies is the way the Bourne films seem grounded in the politics of the real world, something the Bond films studiously avoid. After all, it's more fun to watch a movie about a super-spy fighting a bald evil genius with a volcano lair and an army of henchmen than it is to watch an indictment of the modern surveillance state. But "fun" isn't necessarily what Paul Greengrass has been chasing in the "Bourne" films he's made, and with the newest addition to the series starting to pick up steam, I couldn't be happier. With Greengrass onboard to direct again, I think it's safe to say the film is good hands. Greengrass is co-writing it with Christopher Rouse, and little by little, they are putting together one hell of a cast. Vincent Cassel »

Vincent Cassel Plays A Malevolent Cult Leader In First Partisan Trailer

2 September 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before going toe-to-toe with Matt Damon in Paul Greengrass’ long-gestating sequel Bourne 5, Vincent Cassel will topline a drama of his own in Partisan, where he stars as a ruthless teacher – but not the kind you may expect.

Entertainment Weekly has the maiden trailer for Ariel Kleiman’s gritty Australian drama, shedding light on Cassel’s protagonist, Gregori. Less of a shining example and more of a cult leader, this is a character who recruits young children to do his evil bidding without batting an eyelid, as he looks to keep a watchful eye on his closed community. Jeremy Chabriel is on board to play one of those 11-year-old children, who is drawn in by Gregori’s promise of freedom and blissful peace.

American Ultra review: Jesse Eisenberg's blazed Bourne indelicately mixes action and comedy

2 September 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jesse Eisenberg is the unlikely action hero at the centre of American Ultra, a fast-talking, hyper-violent action-comedy about a stoner who turns out to be a Jason Bourne-like sleeper agent. Making it an Adventureland reunion is Kristen Stewart, onboard as Eisenberg's equally-blazed girlfriend Phoebe.

Eisenberg plays Mike Howell in typically fidgety fashion, working a dead-end job at a convenience store while he tries to find the right moment to propose to Phoebe. When the CIA puts a kill order on him (Mike was part of the defunct "Ultra" programme before getting his memory wiped), old instincts kick in and before long he's turned a spoon into a deadly weapon to take down a pair of government goons.

Staging a fake viral outbreak, the government seal off Mike's small West Virginia town to pen him in and finish the job. Topher Grace's conniving agent Yates pulls the strings from Langley »

The actor’s most recent appearance as Bourne was in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, following which Jeremy Renner played a different agent in the less successful The Bourne Legacy in 2012.

Paul Greengrass Action Sequel Bourne 5 Has Found Its Villain

1 September 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With filming due to get underway later this week in Rome, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Paul Greengrass’ Bourne 5 has found its lead villain in Vincent Cassel.

Joining the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander and, following a brief spell on the sidelines while Legacy was in the ether, Matt Damon, there’s no word yet on who the esteemed French actor will be playing, though his casting is surely a major coup for Universal as it looks to get its Bourne action series back on track.

Throughout his career, Cassel has appeared in a variety of different roles on both sides of the moral compass. Chief among those is his part in the Ocean sequels, along with Darren Aronofsky’s adorned Black Swan.
