RUMOR: Chris Evans Being Considered For Lead Role In The Bourne Legacy!

Posted on 04 March 2011 by Christian

The latest rumor surrounding upcoming Bourne movie (sans Matt Damon as Jason Bourne) is that Captain America: The First Avenger star Chris Evans is the favorite to play the lead character…

I’m not sure about you guys, but a Bourne movie WITHOUT Jason Bourne just does not sit right with me. After recent reports listed several well known actors who were said to be in the running to replace Matt Damon in this film (none of who excited me that much) a rumor has emerged today that points at Captain America himself being favourite to star in The Bourne Legacy!

Sources tell Think McFly Think Evans is being considered by Universal for The Bourne Legacy. Word is they’re seeing big fat dollar signs with Captain America (that Superbowl TV spot went over like gangbusters and we should be getting the trailer soon) and writer/director Tony Gilroy likes what he’s seen from Evans’ past performances.

Replacing Matt Damon is proving to be a [female dog], and having a hot actor coming off a hit movie would help ease audiences into this new Bourne-absent installment. That’s why those rumblings of Shia LaBeouf’s candidacy, even Tobey Maguire, make perfect sense and Evans’ schedule will be clear after The Avengers wraps and well before any Captain America sequel.

What do you guys think about this? With The Bourne Legacy expected to be released sometime in the Summer of 2012, they’d need to start filming almost right after Evans finishes work on The Avengers – a busy schedule for the actor, but it could easily be done. Be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place!
