Cassel plays the villain chasing after Jason Bourne, described as “a mysterious man simply known as The Asset, industry code for assassin.” Jones is a high-ranking CIA officer. Stiles reprises her role from the original Bourne trilogy as his friend Nicky. Vikander’s role has not been revealed, but obviously is the film’s love interest.

Damon has said the new Bourne film will journey “through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world” and deal with themes like “spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy.”

Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross, who was at the center of The Bourne Legacy, is not involved.

Greece and Las Vegas will be among the shooting locations.

Essandoh’s film résumé includes Edward Zwick’s Blood Diamond and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. On the small screen, he’s known for starring in BBC America’s Copper, where he played Dr. Matthw Freeman. He has also had recurring roles in shows like Elementary, Girls, Believe, Blue Bloods, and Treme.

Bourne 5 opens July 29, 2016.
