Swede new star for Bourne
Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander is to join a returning Matt Damon in the fifth instalment of the Bourne franchise.
The Swede (pictured, right) is expected to play the female lead in Paul Greengrass’s sequel, due for release in July next year.
Dropping out of an upcoming project, though, are Michael Keaton and JK Simmons after the pair left King Kong prequel, Kong: Skull Island.
Rumours suggest scheduling conflicts are to blame for their departure, which leaves Tom Hiddleston as the blockbuster’s lone star.
