The short list of actors to play the lead role in Tony Gilroy’s upcoming “The Bourne Legacy” has been narrowed down with four actors according to Deadline.
All four are set to screen test for the role in early April – Luke Evans, Joel Edgerton, Dominic Cooper and Garrett Hedlund.
Two further actors are also in the running but will not be testing – Shia LaBeouf and Taylor Kitsch. That list of six is cut down from the fourteen or so names linked to the role before with the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Fassbender and Kellan Lutz out of the running.
The group is an interesting mix and Universal believes the brand name is strong enough that a household name isn’t necessary for the role.
