Ed Norton Might Be the Villain in The Bourne Legacy

Ed Norton.

Ed Norton is in talks to play the bad guy in the upcoming Jeremy Renner–led Bourne Legacy movie. Plot details are still fuzzy, but Legacy exists in the same world as its predecessors, only this go-round focuses on the "ramifications" from the end of Ultimatum as they "echo out into the larger world," according to screenwriter and director Tony Gilroy. Norton would join Renner and Rachel Weisz, who is set to play Renner's love interest. [Variety]
