Gyllenhaal, Dano, Pitt and Many More Vying for 'The Bourne Legacy'

Firstshowing:

Last October we learned that the fourth movie in the Jason Bourne franchise wouldn't include out titular amnesiac hero, but rather an all-new character. Director Tony Gilroy said The Bourne Legacy is "not a reboot or a recast or a prequel. No one's replacing Matt Damon. There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter... this is a stand-alone project." Now it's time to fill this new hero's shoes. Variety was first on the scene with a shortlist of contenders that includes actors Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), Taylor Kitsch (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga). But there's more!

Not sure I want a 'Bourne' movie without Damon but from those choices I would probably want Michael Pitt to get the part.

Josh Hartnett might be decent as would Jake Gyllenhaal.

I loathed the Bourne movies. In fact, I hate the original so much, that I fell asleep during the first 20 minutes each time and stayed away from the rest of the movies because I was bored to tears with the first movie. I've also been told that "Shaky Cam" was used far too much in the more recent installments

You hate the original? I thought it was a fun ride and it's probably the best of the trilogy.

Crazay2111d ago

Hated the original so I never ventured back.

Loathed? Really? I absolutely loved the Bourne movies. They were fun action thriller movies I thought. Really enjoyable.

Crazay2111d ago

Really - Hated it. Wouldn't pick up dog crap with the disc. Don't understand why either. I just hated it.

I can't see Gyllenhaal playing the role. I think Damon should come back. But, I guess just like Bond, the actor for Bourne has to change too.

-MD-2111d ago

It's a new character.

Sunny_D2111d ago

It is? So I guess it's like a Reboot?

Bourne is so awesome but nobody should play him but Matt Damon. Damon IS Bourne.

JL2111d ago

They won't be playing Bourne. It's a new character in the Bourne universe.

I can see Gyllenhaal or Fassbender playing a role like this though I would rather have Jason Bourne come back with Damon playing him of course.
