Edward Norton in talks to join 'The Bourne Legacy'




Fresh off the ill will he stirred up for being a jerk during The Incredible HulkEdward Norton is in contract talks to play the villain in the next movie in the Jason Bourne series. You know, the one without Jason Bourne in it.

The Hollywood Reporter says Norton, who last appeared in Stone with Robert De Niro, is negotating to star in the reboot The Bourne Legacy opposite The Hurt Locker's Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz, so this is turning out to be a pretty big-name addition to the series. Who needs Matt Damon, anyway?

Shooting with director Tony Gilroy is slated for the fall. Flipping a coin to decide whether you want to drop $9.50 on seeing it will likely come late next year, at the earliest.
