Oscar Isaac Joins “Bourne Legacy”

He tested for the lead role in Tony Gilroy’s “The Bourne Legacy” at Universal Pictures, a role he ultimately lost to Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker”).

Nevertheless, rising actor Oscar Isaac (“Sucker Punch,” “Balibo”) left such an impression that he’s scored the major role of a brainwashed assassin named ‘Number 3’ in the film reports Deadline.

Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton are also expected to star in the project which Gilroy will direct. The project is the fourth film in the series and the first not to feature Matt Damon’s titular Jason Bourne character.
