Rachel Weisz may be the new Bourne girl

Just last week, we told you that sexy and talented actress Rachel Weisz might be getting a bit witchy in Sam Raimi's OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL.

Now she could dealing with less fantastical action and espionage in the pseudo-sequel THE BOURNE LEGACY.

Jeremy Renner is the Damon replacement, ""an operative from a covert government program that is even more dangerous than the Treadstone brainwashing program that hatched Bourne."

There's no word on what Weisz' character might be -- is she the new variant of Franka Potente, an innocent lady inadvertently caught up in the chaos? Or perhaps more sinister, a devious female agent from the same Bourne program? I genuinely don't know!

Writer-director Tony Gilroy (MICHAEL CLAYTON) and Universal are piecing together the movie for a release in Summer 2012. Deadline says that it's conceivable Weisz could do both OZ and LEGACY, depending on their filming schedules, but that she's inching closer to BOURNE.
