Shia LaBeouf is the latest actor circling The Bourne LegacyShia LaBeouf is the latest high-profile actor to be mentioned in connection with Universal Pictures' The Bourne Legacy. We reported last night that actors such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Garrett Hedlund, Taylor Kitsch, and Kellan Lutz are also being considered to take over the role of Jason Bourne.

The Bourne Legacy producer Frank Marshall previously worked with Shia LaBeouf on the 2008 blockbuster Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It seems a decision hasn't been made yet on who will become the new Jason Bourne, although Shia LaBeouf appears to be one of the leading candidates. Our report from last night indicates that the producers are seeking actors in their mid-20s to early-30s for the lead role.

Tony Gilroy will direct from his own script, and the production is said to start sometime this spring, assuming they sign a lead actor in the very near future. Not much is known about the story of The Bourne Legacy, although it is believed there will be an opening for Matt Damon to return as Jason Bourne in future installments.
