Dominic Cooper in line for Bourne?

Dominic Cooper is among the stars being considered to star in The Bourne Legacy.

The Mamma Mia! star has been screen-tested by director Tony Gilroy, Deadline reports, along with King Arthur's Joel Edgerton, Tron: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund and Clash Of The Titans' Luke Evans.

Whichever actor is cast will take on the role of a new hero and trained assassin in what Tony has described as a "sidequel" to the original Bourne trilogy.

Duplicity writer and director Tony helped write the scripts for the first three films and has stated that he is not ruling out a future return by Matt as Jason Bourne, but Matt has said he will not reprise the role without Paul Greengrass as director.

The OC's Logan Marshall-Green is rumoured to be among another set of actors expected to be screen- tested for the role next month, and Shia LaBeouf and Battleship's Taylor Kitsch are also said to be being considered for the movie.

Taylor has already met with Tony and sources say Transformers star Shia will not have to screen-test for the role.
