Bourne Spinoff film. Director narrows down search for lead.

Universal and writer-director Tony Gilroy are deep into searching for the lead of their Bourne Identity spinoff film, with several young Hollywood types in the running.

Deadline reports that the actors up for The Bourne Legacy include Joel Edgerton (a.k.a. the young Uncle Owen), Dominic Cooper (The Devil's Double), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Luke Evans (Clash of the Titans). They'll all be screen-testing for the part.

"There could be another name or two (Logan Marshall-Green comes up as speculation)," says the site, while adding that "the choice could always come from an actor who doesn't test." That could be a Shia LaBeouf or Taylor Kitsch, both of whom apparently are also under consideration.
