Riz Ahmed Cast In Bourne Sequel

The still-untitled Bourne Identity sequel, which will star Matt Damon in his return to the role and franchise, has recriuted Riz Ahmed in an as-yet-undisclosed role.

Ahmed is no stranger to big franchises; he will also appear in the forthcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and his work on that film almost kept him from being able to commit to the Bourne schedule, according to Variety.

The story indicates that Ahmed will play a tech specialist at the CIA, but that remains unofficial and comes from anonymous sources.

The film is due in theaters on July 29, 2016.

This story initially said that both Damon and Jeremy Renner would appear in the film. We regret the error.
