'Bourne 5' Teams Tommy Lee Jones with Matt Damon

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

12 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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 »

Tommy Lee Jones Joins Bourne 5

14 hours ago | 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. »

Tommy Lee Jones Joins the New 'Bourne' Sequel

18 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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. »

Rosamund Pike Tackling High Wire Act With Jon Hamm

20 July 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After earning an Oscar nomination for her chilling portrayal of maybe-sociopath Amy Dunne in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike has landed another role that may be worthy of her formidable talent. The actress has signed on to star opposite Jon Hamm in Brad Anderson’s political thriller High Wire Act, which boasts a script by The Bourne Identity screenwriter Tony Gilroy.

Set in 1980s Beirut, the thriller will follow a former U.S. diplomat named Mason Skiles (Hamm) who is called back into action in order to prevent the murder of a former colleague from the group that may be responsible for his own family’s death. Pike will take on the role of a CIA field agent working undercover at the American embassy, who makes it her mission to keep Mason alive and ensure his top-secret mission goes off without a hitch.

How to fix a failing movie franchise

7 July 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paramount tried a few approaches in the new Terminator reboot. But if a franchise hits the doldrums, how can a studio resurrect it?

Fingers are being crossed at Skydance and Paramount Pictures that the critical mauling handed out to Terminator: Genisys last week won't be reflected fully in the box office numbers. So far, the plan for a new trilogy of Terminator films is arguably just about alive, courtesy of a total gross for the new film of $131m worldwide. That's below expectations, but if it can eventually crawl its way to $400m, that's probably enough to move ahead with a Genisys sequel (it'd be more than the hugely-acclaimed Mad Max: Fury Road).

But even if a new film gets greenlit, it's clear that things have to change again. As many have pointed out, the consensus is now that there have been more bad-to-middling Terminator films than good ones, »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

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 »

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 »

'Bourne 5' Wants Viggo Mortensen as the Villain

19 June 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.
