Also Comes Aboard Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy'



If you want a dinner date with Scott Glenn, you might want to give him a call now because he's about to become very, very busy as he's joined two big upcoming projects.

First up, he'll reprise his role from "The Bourne Ultimatum" as CIA director Ezra Kramer in "The Bourne Legacy." He'll join Albert Finney (as Dr. Albert Hirsch) and Joan Allen (as Deputy Director Pamela Landy) as returning actors to the franchise that will focus on a new agent in a story that will leave room for Jason Bourne to return. Of course, specific plot details are under wraps. Jeremy Renner will be the agent on the run this time with Rachel Weisz, Oscar Isaac and Stacy Keach among the cast and Ed Norton set as the villain. Franchise steward Tony Gilroy wrote the screenplay and will be directing the film, which should be lensing any day now in time for its August 2012 release.

But that's not all. Glenn is also finding time for Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy." The film is a 1960s-era thriller based on the book by Pete Dexter that follows Ward James, a respected journalist, and his brother Jack, a college dropout, investigating the possible wrongful conviction of a death row inmate who was found guilty of killing the town’s sheriff in Florida. He'll join John Cusack, Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman and David Oyelowo in the film, playing W.W. James who runs the local newspaper. Filming on "The Paperboy" should be underway any day now as well. [Variety]
