James Franco to star in The Bourne Legacy?November 5th, 2010 - 3:40 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 5 (ANI): James Franco is apparently in line to take over from Matt Damon as the lead actor in the next Bourne movie.
Damon, who has played the titled role in three Bourne films, will not appear in the upcoming fourth installment of the popular secret agent movie series, ‘The Bourne Legacy, reports the Daily Express.
Tony Gilroy recently revealed he plans to unveil “a whole new hero” in the blockbuster, but will leave the door open for Damon to return in the future.
He has now sparked speculation his “new hero” will be Franco after they were seen talking at a screening of the actor’s new movie ‘127 Hours’ in New York on Tuesday night.
A source tells the New York Post that Gilroy “made a beeline for Franco, asking to be introduced to him”.
The Bourne Legacy is due for release in 2012. (ANI)
