Writer-director Tony Gilroy has met with several actors in his searching for the new lead character in Universal's The Bourne Legacy, which will be a new assassin with a similar background to Jason Bourne, played by Matt Damon.
Univeral and Tony Gilroy are looking at actors in their mid-20s to early 30s.
Tony Gilroy wants to screen-test all candidates, which may be a stumbling block for some established thespians.
Production on The Bourne Legacy was to begin in the spring, assuming they find their leading man.
The focus on a new character will allow some flexibility for the possibility of Matt Damon returning in some fashion.
