Two weeks ago, "Bourne Legacy" star Jeremy Renner revealed a bit too much when he opened up to Empire about his upcoming role in the action reboot. He told the British movie magazine that his character's name is Aaron Cross and said "It's that same deal, it's just a new set of agents with a different leash."

We spoke with Frank Marshall, one of the producers for the next 'Bourne' movie, at the New York premiere of "War Horse." The producer spoke briefly about what's different this time around and how Renner may have already given too much away.

The Bourne LegacyYou've heard by now that "The Bourne Legacy" will veer away from the spy franchise's original trilogy while still maintaining the continuity of those films, even without Matt Damon on board. But how exactly will the spinoff connect with the original? We're glad you asked!

Showblitz reveals that "Bourne" veterans Joan Allen and Albert Finney are both set to reprise their roles from the original set of movies in the latest thriller, directed by longtime "Bourne" scribe Tony Gilroy.

They're joining an amazingly accomplished cast that already includes Jeremy Renner in the lead role, Oscar Isaac as an assassin named Number Three, Edward Norton tentatively playing a villain, and Rachel Weisz pulling her weight in an unknown capacity.

Indira Gandhi, India's first and only female Prime Minister, is getting a much-deserved biopic, and big name actors are being wooed for star-studded cameos. According to The Daily Telegraph, Helen Mirren is in talks to return to the role of Queen Elizabeth II, who she won an Oscar for playing in 2006's "The Queen." Emily Watson, meanwhile, has been cast as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Other expected -- or at least sought-after -- portrayals include Tom Hanks as Lyndon Johnson, Tommy Lee Jones as Richard Nixon and Albert Finney as British actor Peter Ustinov.

The biopic, titled "Mother: The Indira Gandhi Story," will be released in two parts, a la Steven Soderbergh's "Che" films. Both will be directed by Indian filmmaker Krishna Shah, who last helmed a pair of American B-movies called "Hard Rock Zombies" and "American Drive-In" back in 1985. Since then he seems to have primarily been a producer of "Sleepaway Camp" sequels. Playing the lead role of Gandhi is Bollywood star Madhuri Dixit, of the very entertaining and hugely successful Indian film "Hum Aapke Hain Kaun...!" (I highly recommend it to anyone curious about modern Bollywood cinema). Read More...
