Tommy Lee Jones joins cast for Bourne 5
Tommy Lee Jones has signed up to star in the new Bourne movie.
The new movie, which is currently just known as Bourne 5, will feature Matt Damon returning to the role of Jason Bourne and see director Paul Greengrass return to the director's chair. Julia Stiles will also return, while both Jones and actress Alicia Vikander are new additions to the cast.
Jones's role is yet to be confirmed, but Variety reports he will play a senior officer at the CIA, there is no word on who Vikander will play as yet.
Before agreeing to return for this new movie, Matt Damon had stated that he had no intention of of returning for a fourth time while Greengrass wasn’t involved and both had publicly said that they didn't believe there was anywhere left to take the character and they would not return unless a compelling story was brought forward.
As it turns out that story will actually be written by Damon and Greengrass themselves, in collaboration with Greengrass's regular editor Christopher Rouse.
Bourne 5 will be released on July 29th in 2016. You can purchase all four previous instalments of the series here in our online store.
