What’s that? The Bourne movies couldn’t possibly get any sexier? Well, what if we told you Jake Gyllenhaal could be coming on board? Apparently, Jake is one of the front-runners to take over the franchise in Universal’s upcoming The Bourne Legacy. Wait, wait, calm down! We know we said “take over,” but Jake would not be playing Bourne. Instead, he’d be playing a government killer on the lam just like Jason Bourne, with Bourne possibly (though we’re going to guess probably) popping up at some point in the new film.
Joining Jake on the short list are Garrett Hedlund, Taylor Kitsch, Kellan Lutz and Tobey Maguire, all actors who could use an action franchise to their name (or in Maguire’s case, a new one). But with all respect to the former Spidey, Gyllenhaal clearly stands above the pack on the excitement scale. Sure, Prince Of Persia didn’t work out, but Jake and Matt Damon together? Now that‘s how you get the ladies to an action movie.
