Rachel Weisz may joining in on some spy games.
The "Lovely Bones" beauty could potentially have a very busy rest of the year ahead of her, as she's currently being courted for the female lead in "The Bourne Legacy," according to Deadline.
Weisz would be joining Jeremy Renner, who's playing an operative from a covert government program that is even more dangerous than the Treadstone brainwashing program from which sprung Jason Bourne. And everyone remembers what a mess that was, right?
Rachel Weisz was recently cast as wicked witch Evanora in Sam Raimi's "Oz, the Great and Powerful," which begins shooting this summer. "The Bourne Legacy" starts shooting in September, so doing both projects would mean little to no time off for Weisz for the rest of 2011 (and some possible overlap, as we have a feeling shooting on the gargantuan "Oz" will bleed into the fall).
Hey, she can do both. Well, we want her to do both, which isn't exactly the same thing, but still.
No word on what Rachel's character would be in "Bourne," though with news of her being pursued to join the cast, we hope some details on the plot will finally emerge. Or at least an idea of how many different countries will be featured in this one.
