Bourne Lands a Villain

Bourne Lands a Villain

The next Bourne film has reportedly landed its main villain with a Black Swan star signing up.

Previously there had been speculation that Viggo Mortensen was offered the rule however Vincent Cassel is the man who will portray the main villain taking on Jason Bourne in the newest film in the series.

Other than Matt Damon the casting announcements so far have also included Tommy Lee Jones, and Julia Stiles coming back to the series, while story details on the film are scarce.

This Bourne film is targeting a July 2016 release, at which point it will have been about 8 years since the last time we saw Damon as Bourne in theatres. Paul Greengrass is returning to direct as well, so you can expect lots of visceral up close shaky cam action once again!

We’re pretty excited by this news, Cassel makes a fantastic villain, let us know what you think in the comments.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
