Rachel Weisz: 'Bourne Legacy' with Jeremy Renner?

Rachel Weisz is in negotiations for a role in The Bourne Legacy, Deadline reports.

The 41-year-old British actress would star opposite Jeremy Renner, who’ll be taking on the role of “an operative from a covert government program,” a character separate from Matt Damon‘s Jason Bourne.

Deadline adds that Rachel may have to choose between The Bourne Legacy and Oz: The Great and Powerful, the Sam Raimi-directed flick, which she’s also in talks with for a role.

Bourne starts filming this September, while Oz is planned to go into production this summer.

WOULD YOU LIKE to see Rachel in Bourne or Oz?

    Poor Aronofsky! LOL
    He dropped out of the Wolverine. On the one hand, his ex has a lot of good chance to succeed, and she’ll get a chance. It was good for her that she parted from him after all. Obviously luck has turned in her favor.

  • jeff

    nah, if there is a scheduling conflict between oz and the bourne spinoff, she should take oz. i’ve heard good things about the character she’s circling to play (evonora).

    They looks good

  • jeff

    @Sena: wrong. she always been more arthouse/indie than sure fire blockbusters aside from the mummy films, constantine, etc.

  • jeff

    @Sena: I meant yes, you’re right.

  • Belle

    I agree, I read the script last night and her role in Oz is by far and away the best part. She’s a perfect fit for Evadora.

  • Diane

    Renner hasn’t sex appeal at all! I’m a girl, and not a lesbian. But I want to rather sleep with Rachel!

  • carrie

    @Sena: because she’s single now and she can do what she wants now

  • Pete

    I love it – a gay Jason Bourne!

  • to Carrie

    As far as I know she has always been single. I suppose Daniel Craig is’nt the type who interferes with HER decision what to do careerwise.
    Smart move!

    ew Aronofsky is a Jew and so is she. She has nice hair I’ll give her that.
