Julia Stiles has finalized a deal to reprise her role as Nicky Parsons from the first three Bourne movies in Universal's Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, reuniting her with franchise star Matt Damon, confirms Deadline. Nicky Parsons was a Treadstone employee who helped track down Matt Damon's Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity, but she became an ally to him in The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, hinting in the final movie that Jason and Nicky may have had a romantic relationship before his amnesia. Aside from Matt Damon, Julia Stiles is the only actor to appear in the first three movies.
We reported last month that Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander is being sought for a major role, but Matt Damon and Julia Stiles are the only two confirmed cast members on board so far. No plot details have been released, but Paul Greengrass is directing and co-writing the script with Christopher Rouse. Frank Marshall and Jeffrey M. Weiner are producing, with Universal already setting a July 29, 2016 release date.Read More
