Ed Norton has reportedly entered negotiations to join the cast of The Bourne Legacy.
According to Variety, the Fight Club star is reportedly in talks to appear opposite Jeremy Renner as a villain in the film, which will be directed by Tony Gilroy.
Renner, whose previous films include The Hurt Locker, was cast in the lead role in April and Rachel Weisz will play his love interest.
The Bourne Legacy is a reboot of the original Bourne trilogy, which starred Matt Damon in the role of secret agent Jason Bourne.
Renner plays a government agent seeking his identity who has come out of a project even more dangerous than Bourne's.
Production on The Bourne Legacy is expected to begin this autumn and the film is scheduled for release on 17 August, 2012.
