If you loved Alicia Vikander as the android in Ex Machina, get ready, because you'll soon be seeing a lot more of her. She's signed to next appear in The Circle opposite Tom Hanks, and now she is in talks for two more big upcoming tent pole movies. First, she is being eyed for a role in the video game adaptation Assassin's Creed opposite Michael Fassbender. And, she is also being considered for the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel.
It's reported that some work is having to be done to ensure that Alicia Vikander's schedule works out for all three movies. Though, it's being speculated that she may completely drop out of The Circle. It sounds like Emma Watson may replace her as Tom Hanks' leading lady if things don't work out, but that has in no way been confirmed.
James Ponsoldt is set to direct The Circle, a film that got a lot of attention at this year's Cannes market. Alicia Vikander was announced on the eve of the festival, with her role said to be that of a young employee at a tech company called The Circle, who gets involved with a mysterious man. Alicia Vikander will next be seen as the female lead in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. She also has roles in The Danish Girl, Tulip Fever, Adam Jones and The Light Between Oceans. If the actress takes a role in Assassin's Creed, it will reunite her with her Macbeth co-star Michael Fassbender.
