Danish actress Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina,” “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”) has been set to star in the upcoming fifth instalment of the Jason Bourne film series opposite Matt Damon.
Paul Greengrass returns to direct the new film and is writing the screenplay with Christopher Rouse. Details on her role in the saga are not forthcoming, other than she’ll join the returning Damon and Julia Stiles in the Universal film which will begin filming shortly in the UK.
What is set though is that in order to accomodate the Bourne film, she has had to drop out of Justin Kurzel’s upcoming film adaptation of the popular video game series “Assassin’s Creed” starring Michael Fassbender. She’s also likely to opt out of James Ponsoldt’s “The Circle” starring Tom Hanks.
