Julia Stiles back for more Bourne

Following last years announcement that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are set to return to the Bourne franchise, news now arrives via Deadline that Julia Stiles will also be back in her role as Nicky Parsons.

The nervy Nicky has been a presence in the three Jason Bourne centric films, and becomes the first character beyond Damon's to be confirmed for the latest, as yet untitled movie. Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) is reportedly being sought to join them, but has yet to make a deal.

As for what the former amnesiac super spy will be up against this time, nothing has been revealed as yet, though we do know that Greengrass is at work on the script with Captain Philips (2013) editor Christopher Rouse and that Frank Marshall will be back in the producer's chair. The new Bourne, whatever it may end up being called, is set for release on 29 July next year.

Stiles, meanwhile, will next be seen in Stephen Herek's (Mr. Holland's Opus) The Great Gilly Hopkins, Go With Me, Border Crossing and Beyond Deceit.
