Vincent Cassell who has appeared in films such as Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, Black Swan, Mesrine, A Dangerous Method, Trance and most recently Child 44, is set to play the main villain for Bourne 5. Not much is known but reportedly the french actor will play a high-level assassin who may or may not have a backstory that involves revenge. Cassell joins a line of notable actors who played villainous assassins in the franchise. Some of these actors include Edgar Ramirez, Karl Urban and even Oscar Nominee Clive Owen.
Cassell not only joins Matt Damon who is playing the titular character Jason Bourne but also Tommy Lee Jones, Julia Stiles and Alicia Vikander. Paul Greengrass rejoins the franchise as he will once again be sitting in the directors chair for the upcoming 5th installment. Production is set to begin later this year with an intended release of July 29th, 2016.
