I've got a couple of casting announcements for you this morning. There's no word on who he will be playing, but The Wrap is reporting that Vinyl and Elementary actor Ato Essandoh has been cast in BOURNE 5, joining Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel and Julia Stiles. Essandoh's other television credits include turns on Girls, Blue Bloods and Copper, and he has also appeared in movies such as DJANGO UNCHAINED, BLOOD DIAMOND and GET HIM TO THE GREEK.

Production is underway for the fifth installment in the series, and Paul Greengrass is directing from a script he co-wrote with Christopher Rouse. BOURNE 5 hits theaters on July 29, 2016.

Meanwhile, THR has learned that Frances O’Connor (BLESSED, A.I., THE HUNTER) is set to co-star alongside Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in THE CONJURING 2. The actress will play "the mother of a girl who is experiencing a haunting and desperate for help." James Wan will be back to direct the sequel to his 2013 horror movie, and filming for the follow-up will begin later this month for its June 10, 2016 release.
