Tom Hanks And Emma Watson Are Making A Movie Together

24 June 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was about a month ago that reports came out that said Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander had signed on to star with Tom Hanks in the upcoming thriller The Circle. As it turns out, she's been pulled away from the movie thanks to the allure of Paul Greengrass' Bourne 5 starring Matt Damon - but the good news is that the project has found an excellent replacement in Emma Watson. Playtone and Likely Story announced today via press release that Emma Watson has officially signed on to star in The Circle, which is an adaption of the book of the same name by Dave Eggers and is set to be directed by James Ponsoldt (Smashed, The Spectacular Now). In the story, Watson will be playing a young woman who signs on for a position at the film's titular company - described as an internet monopoly. What makes The Circle »

Alicia Vikander is in for Bourne 5, but is out of Assassin's Creed

24 June 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Alicia Vikander's commitment to Bourne 5 means that she won't be able to star in the Assassin's Creed movie.

The Ex Machina actress had been rumoured to be starring opposite Michael Fassbender in video game adaptation Assassin's Creed, but Deadline reports that scheduling conflicts will prevent her from committing.

Vikander has chosen to sign on for a leading role opposite Matt Damon in director Paul Greengrass's fifth instalment of the Jason Bourne franchise.

It is also known that Julia Stiles is returning as CIA analyst Nicky Parsons, while Viggo Mortensen is being linked to the role of an assassin hunting Bourne.

Bourne 5 is expected to premiere on July 16, 2016.

A separate Bourne movie based around Jeremy Renner's character Aaron Cross is also currently in development. »

Alicia Vikander Joins Bourne 5

24 June 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Like Jason Bourne's battered Mini on a Parisian périphérique, things are suddenly lurching forward on Paul Greengrass's re-Bourne franchise. Hot on the heels of the confirmed Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander is a newly announced to an increasingly exciting Bourne 5. She's been in talks since May.Deadline’s scoop has the fast-rising Swedish actress joining up in an undisclosed role. According to trade, the seriously in-demand actress has had to make some tough choices to fit Bourne into her schedule. She’s dropped out of Justin Kurzel’s Assassin's Creed adaptation, in which she was due to star alongside Michael Fassbender.  That does, in all likelihood, free her up for James Ponsoldt’s The Circle, an adaptation of a Dave Eggers novel that current boasts one Tom Hanks, esq. Her role in that, as a young tech exec at a massive Google-like corp, was in question.All are nice problems »

Alicia Vikander confirmed for Bourne 5, not Assassin's Creed

23 June 2015 10:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alicia Vikander's schedule means it's a yes to Bourne 5, but no to the Assassin's Creed film.

It's been a few weeks now since Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander was linked with sizeable roles in both Bourne 5 and Assassin's Creed, a pair of movies that are both due to shoot this year, ahead of their respective releases in 2017.

As it turns out, a possible scheduling pickle has been avoided, as it's been confirmed that she's only signing up for one of the two films. That'd be the next Bourne film, which sees Matt Damon return to play Jason Bourne, and Paul Greengrass back behind the camera.

Vikander's schedule, therefore, has meant she has had to turn down the chance to star in Assassin's Creed, opposite Michael Fassbender.

Vikander is next to be seen in Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. this coming August. Bourne 5, meanwhile, is set for release in July 2016.

Alicia Vikander Set to Star with Matt Damon in Next Bourne Movie

23 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you don't know the name Alicia Vikander yet you likely will very soon, as she is on her way to becoming a household name in Hollywood. After wowing audiences with her gripping performance in Alex Garland's sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, Deadline is reporting that Vikander has signed on to star in the next entry of the Bourne franchise known as Bourne 5. She will be sharing the screen with returning cast members Julia Stiles and Jason Bourne himself – Matt Damon. They will be directed by Paul Greengrass, who is also returning to the franchise. The film's villain will be played by Viggo Mortensen, who's reportedly in talks. This is yet another interesting choice for the Swedish-born actress. She had been in talks with star alongside Michael Fassbender in the upcoming adaption of the video game Assassin's Creed but she chose to do the Bourne film instead and passed on Creed. »

Alicia Vikander Takes 'Bourne 5', Passes on 'Assassin's Creed'

23 June 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Rising star Alicia Vikander is set to join both Matt Damon and Julia Stiles in Universal's Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel. We reported last month that the actress was being sought for both Bourne 5 and New Regency's Assassin's Creed, while also being attached to star in The Circle alongside Tom Hanks. Deadline reports that Alicia Vikander will not be starring in either Assassin's Creed or The Circle. Our earlier report revealed that the actress was trying to juggle her schedule to accommodate all three movies, but that didn't happen.

It isn't known who Alicia Vikander will play in Bourne 5, and there haven't been story details released at this time. Universal has already set a July 29, 2016 release date for the untitled Bourne sequel, and with the cast starting to come together, production will likely begin in the near future. There were rumors that The Bourne Legacy star Jeremy Renner could also »

Alicia Vikander Confirmed for 'Bourne 5,' But Has To Drop 'Assassin's Creed'

23 June 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s official, up-and-coming Swedish actress Alicia Vikander — who will be everywhere in 2015 and has already appeared in "Son Of A Gun," “Ex Machina,” and “Testament of Youth” — has bagged a leading role opposite Matt Damon in the upcoming fifth ‘Bourne’ film. No word on who she will play, but Vikander was trying to squeeze in both this ‘Bourne’ film, directed by Paul Greengrass, and “Assassin’s Creed,” co-starring her current boyfriend Michael Fassbender. But she couldn’t fit both, so Vikander has elected to star in the already-established franchise.

There’s Warner Bros’ summer spy offering “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” and she'll hit the awards season with Tom Hooper’s “The Danish Girl,” the Weinstein Company’s “Tulip Fever,” and John Wells »

Alicia Vikander Chooses Bourne 5 over Assassin’S Creed

23 June 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Alicia Vikander is 2015’s breakthrough actress. She’s already given one of the year’s best performances in Ex Machina and she still has (deep breath), Tulip Fever, The Light Between Oceans, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and The Danish Girl left to go (we’ll collectively forget that Seventh Son existed if we haven’t already). I don’t know if her work in her upcoming movies will equal her Ex Machina performance (she may also be at the mercy of the writing or the size of the role), but her star has ascended rapidly, which means she’s now in demand for much bigger projects. [caption id="attachment_468369" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Sony Pictures Classics[/caption] Vikander has become so popular that she was being courted for Bourne 5 and Assassin’s Creed. Deadline now reports that Vikander has chosen Bourne 5 since her schedule won’t allow her to do Assassin’s Creed as well. »

Alicia Vikander Officially Set For Bourne 5, Not In Assassin’s Creed

23 June 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that Vikander was Danish, not Swedish. The post has been updated to reflect the change.

Universal’s fifth Bourne installment is casting up, with Matt Damon set to reprise the role of amnesiac CIA assassin Jason Bourne in a new entry again directed by Paul Greengrass (who helmed the first three Bourne pics). Additionally, Julia Stiles has been recruited to again play Bourne’s ally Nicky Parsons. Now, it’s been officially confirmed by Deadline that Ex Machina breakout Alicia Vikander, previously in talks for a key role, has signed on for the tentpole.

The site simultaneously reports that the Swedish actress, who has been courted by just about every major studio in the wake of her star-making performance as A.I. Ava in Alex Garland’s sci-fi hit, will not be appearing in the Assassin’s Creed adaptation alongside Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Vikander Set For Fifth "Bourne" Film

23 June 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Danish actress Alicia Vikander ("Ex Machina," "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.") has been set to star in the upcoming fifth instalment of the Jason Bourne film series opposite Matt Damon.

Paul Greengrass returns to direct the new film and is writing the screenplay with Christopher Rouse. Details on her role in the saga are not forthcoming, other than she'll join the returning Damon and Julia Stiles in the Universal film which will begin filming shortly in the UK.

What is set though is that in order to accomodate the Bourne film, she has had to drop out of Justin Kurzel's upcoming film adaptation of the popular video game series "Assassin's Creed" starring Michael Fassbender. She's also likely to opt out of James Ponsoldt's "The Circle" starring Tom Hanks.

A Familiar Face Returns For Next Bourne Film!

22 June 2015 1:34 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Some casting news to start your day, and it's been reported that Julia stiles will be reprising her role as CIA agent Nicky Parsons for the upcoming return of Jason Bourne to our screens. Not only that, but rumours are afoot that Viggo Mortenson may be set to star as the movie's chief bad guy, and Alicia Vikander (who was magnificent in Ex Machina) will appear in an as yet undisclosed role. Paul Greengrass is returning to helm the franchise that made Matt Damon a credible action star, after Damon said he would only return with Greengrass behind the camera. Jeremy Renner's failed bid to reignite the spy series was very underwhelming, but fans everywhere are excited at the prospect of seeing Damon back as the only spy who ever gave Bond a run for his money! »

Bourne 5: Julia Stiles back, Viggo Mortensen linked

21 June 2015 10:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Viggo Mortensen may be the villain, and Julia Stiles will definitely be back, as Bourne 5 begins its recruitment drive...

The return of Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to the Bourne movies has been definite for a while now (following their collaboration on The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum), and production on the film can't be far off. The movie, after all, is set for release on July 29th 2016, and Greengrass tends to shoot his movies for a long time.

It's been revealed over the weekend that also returning from the earlier Greengrass-Damon Bourne movies will be the terrific Julia Styles. She played Nicky in the movies, and appeared in the original trilogy. She was missing from the Jeremy Renner-headlined The Bourne Legacy, to which a separate sequel is still apparently being developed.

Also in Bourne 5 news, the identity of the film's villain may have been revealed. The »
