Edward Norton wants to play spy games, too... the evil kind!
The "Fight Club" star will bring antagonism to Jeremy Renner's top-secret mission as he signs on to play the villain of "The Bourne Supremacy," according to Heat Vision.
Details on the plot of the Matt Damon-less "Bourne" reboot are still confidential, though we do know that Norton and Renner will be at odds with one another, probably as a team of CIA employees frantically type on their keyboards.
It'll be fun to see Norton in another villain role, something he hasn't indulged in since 2003's "The Italian Job" (you may remember he was a big baby about having to appear in that movie due to contractual obligations with Paramount).
We were recently impressed with Norton's dramatic turn in "Stone," in which he plays an incarcerated arsonist who finds religion (or does he?) as he tries to manipulate his parole officer (Robert De Niro) via the affections of his hot wife (Milla Jovovich).
"The Bourne Legacy" will be directed by regular series screenwriter Tony Gilroy. The cast also includes Rachel Weisz as Renner's love interest (uh oh -- we hope she fares better than Franka Potente did in the original trilogy).
Look for the new "Bourne" adventures to commence in theaters on Aug. 3, 2012.
