Oscar Isaac joins ‘Bourne’ reboot with Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton

According to Deadline newcomer Oscar Isaac tested for Tony Gilroy and the lead role in Universal’s The Bourne Legacy and made such a strong impression that the director seriously considered giving the actor the lead role that went to Jeremy Renner.

Now Isaac has just landed the role of “Number 3,” another brainwashed assassin in the film, and it’s a major role in the movie that Gilroy will direct.

Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton are also expected to star in The Bourne Identity spinoff/sequel.

Isaac is about to wrap filming on Steel Town, the Walden Media drama that also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis.

He was most recently seen in Sucker Punch and stars in the Nic Refn-directed Drive opposite Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan.
