Rachel Weisz in Talks to Join THE BOURNE LEGACY

It looks like Rachel Weisz might end up taking the lead female role in the upcoming Universal Pictures prequel to the Bourne franchise The Bourne Legacy, which would be awesome. I love watching Weisz up on the big screen. Not only is she a great actress but she is incredibly good looking. Deadline reports that she is in deep discussions with the studio to star opposite Jeremy Renner in the Tony Gilroy directed movie. Renner plays an operative from a covert government program that is even more dangerous than the Treadstone brainwashing program that hatched Bourne.

She's also in talks to to join Sam Raimi's upcoming Disney film Oz, The Great and Powerful in which she would play the witch Evanora opposite Mila Kunis and James Franco. These are both great projects for her and I hope she is able to take both of them on, but she may have to chose one over the other. The Bourne Legacy starts shooting in September, and Oz will be going into production this summer so they might overlap.

If she has to choose one, which film would you rather see Weisz in?
