‘Bourne Legacy’ to returns Joan Allen as Landy from early Jason Bourne films

Characters from The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum look set to return for the latest spy installment, The Bourne Legacy, out next year. As reported by Variety, Joan Allen, who played Deputy Director Pamela Landy, will be back in CIA threads to deal with new super spy, Jeremy Renner.

Renner will take over the lead from Matt Damon, who decided not to come back as the titular hero after Paul Greengrass chose not to return. Renner will play a new agent with origins similar to Jason Bourne.

Albert Finney, who played Dr Albert Hirsch in the trilogy closer, is also due to return.

While many have balked at the idea of a Bourne movie without Greengrass and Damon, these new additions look set to continue the Bourne and pull the story in a new direction. Instead of, as feared, the whole enterprise feeling like too much of a reboot.
