‘Bourne’ TV show ‘Treadstone’ casts Omar Metwally, Tracy Ifeachor, Hyo Joo, Gabriell Scharnitzky and Emilia Schüle

The Bourne spin-off TV series continues to grow their cast. Jeremy Irvine and Brian J. Smith will play Treadstone‘s male leads and now several other roles have been cast.

Deadline reports that Omar Metwally (The Affair), Tracy Ifeachor (Quantico) and South Korean actress Han Hyo Joo (The Beauty Inside) have officially signed on as series regulars in the USA Network’s Jason Bourne spinoff series.

Gabriell Scharnitzky (The Game) and Emilia Schüle (Berlin Station) have also joined the cast.

Metwally will play the role of Mr. Edwards with Ifeachor set to portray Tara Coleman. Mr. Edwards is CIA agent who was ostracized by his colleagues after making a decision that left a fellow operative dead. While Tara is an investigative journalist who has turned her back on her career after getting too close to a dangerous truth. Now she must put the past behind her to get to the bottom of an international conspiracy.

Treadstone will be Han Hyo Joo’s US acting debut, playing the character of SoYun, a wife and mother who must make difficult choices that compromise her quiet family life in North Korea after she starts to learn about her own secret past.

Scharnitzky and Schüle will be portraying the roles of Petra and an unnamed Russian KGB agent, respectively. Petra is described as no-nonsense Russian patriot who has committed her life to her country but has deep-seated knowledge of Russian tactics that come into play when she is betrayed.

Treadstone explores the origin story and present-day actions of a CIA black ops program known as Treadstone, a covert operation that uses behavior modification protocol to turn its agents into nearly unstoppable superhuman assassins.

Jason Bourne, the central character in Universal Pictures’ Bourne film franchise, was a product of the program. The series follows new sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.

Heroes creator Tim Kring serves as the writer and executive producer. Ramin Bahrani will direct the pilot and also serve as an executive producer. Ben Smith and Jeffery Weiner will executive produce on behalf of Captivate. Justin Levy will executive produce alongside Bradley Thomas for Imperative Entertainment.
