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.
Tommy Lee Jones will be joined by Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, Julia Stiles as Nicky Parsons and Alicia Vikander, whose role has not yet been revealed. 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 »
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 »

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.

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. »

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.

Universal Pictures was working on a sequel to Jeremy Renner's "The Bourne Legacy" when Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Ultimatum) decided to return for at least one more installment in the Jason Bourne franchise. "The Bourne Legacy 2" was immediately placed on hold in order to focus on Damon's version. Production is set to begin shortly, and now comes word that Julia Stiles has been brought back to reprise her role as CIA Agent Nicky Parsons, the character she played in the first three films. Meanwhile, The Wrap is reporting that Viggo Mortensen has been offered the main villain role. Regarding the story, very little is known, except that producer Frank Marshall confirmed that Renner's Aaron Cross character from "The Bourne Legacy" will not be in the new movie. However, Marshall added that "The Bourne Legacy 2" is still in the works. Damon's Jason Bourne film is set »
Just hours after we reported that Bourne franchise star Julia Stiles is reprising her role as Nicky Parsons in Universal's Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, a new report has surfaced about who may play the bad guy. The Wrap's Jeff Sneider claims that Viggo Mortensen has been offered the main villain role, but it isn't known if the actor plans on accepting this offer or not. This will be the first time Matt Damon is returning to the beloved franchise since 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum.
Paul Greengrass is directing and co-writing the new Bourne screenplay with Christopher Rouse. No plot details have surfaced yet, but producer Frank Marshall recently revealed that they are in pre-production, with the filmmakers scouting locations and casting. It isn't known when production may begin, but the studio has already set a July 29, 2016 release date, so shooting may begin sooner than later.

Julia Stiles has finalized a deal to reprise her role as Nicky Parsons from the first three Bourne movies in Universal's Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, reuniting her with franchise star Matt Damon, confirms Deadline. Nicky Parsons was a Treadstone employee who helped track down Matt Damon's Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity, but she became an ally to him in The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, hinting in the final movie that Jason and Nicky may have had a romantic relationship before his amnesia. Aside from Matt Damon, Julia Stiles is the only actor to appear in the first three movies.
We reported last month that Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander is being sought for a major role, but Matt Damon and Julia Stiles are the only two confirmed cast members on board so far. No plot details have been released, but Paul Greengrass is directing and »
With a release date set for just over a year from now, casting on the fifth Jason Bourne movie is underway. Matt Damon is set to reprise his role as Jason Bourne and he'll be collaborating with Paul Greengrass as director after the duo took a break while Jeremy Renner starring in The Bourne Legacy for franchise creator Tony Gilroy. Today brings word Julia Stiles will be back once again as covert agent Nicky Parsons whom we last saw in a cafe learning Bourne's body wasn't found after he took a leap in the East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum. Stiles is the only confirmed cast member beyond Damon with no new names added just yet, though it has been rumored Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) is being sought for a major role and now Jeff Sneider of The Wrap reports Viggo Mortensen has »

Update: Variety reports that Viggo Mortensen, known for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has been offered the villainous part of the assassin tracking Bourne, but he hasn’t accepted yet.
Original: The currently untitled Bourne 5 was already going to be a series reunion of sorts, with star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass both returning after having been absent for 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, and now another familiar face has been confirmed. Julia Stiles, who played Nicky Parsons in the first three Bourne movies, has just signed on to reprise her role in Universal’s “Untitled Next Bourne Chapter.”
Parsons, a covert agent, became a close ally of Jason Bourne’s (Damon) over the course of the franchise. Her return begs the question of whether Joan Allen, who also had a pivotal role in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, will be re-enlisted for what seems like a franchise pivot. »

[Update: Variety adds that Viggo Mortensen has been offered the role of the film's villain.] Another familiar face is onboard for the new Bourne film. While it seemed unlikely that director Paul Greengrass or Matt Damon would return to the franchise after The Bourne Ultimatum given Greengrass’ contentious relationship with Universal, a minor miracle occurred last fall when it was announced the both Greengrass and Damon were indeed coming back to make a new Bourne movie for release in 2016. Development continues as Damon and Greengrass are penning the screenplay alongside Christopher Rouse, and as production looks to begin this fall in London, Deadline reports that Julia Stiles is set to reprise her role as covert agent Nicky Parsons in the new Bourne picture. Stiles’ character has appeared in all of the Bourne films thus far, becoming an unlikely ally for Damon’s titular spy as the series progressed. It’s unclear how she’ll fit into the story this time around, but she had a key role in Ultimatum, »

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 »
