Rachel Weisz bound for The Bourne Legacy

Would play a covert operative

Just in case you're wondering, yes, Rachel Weisz is back.

Having kept a relatively low profile since her last big movie outing, The Lovely Bones in 2009, Weisz recently entered talks to play evil witch Theodora in Sam Raimi’s Oz, The Great And Powerful.

Now the Brit actress has begun negotiations to also join The Bourne Legacy. A pseudo-reboot of the Matt Damon-led franchise, Jeremy Renner is already attached as the series’ new lead.

Weisz is currently interested in playing the role of an operative from a covert government program that is similar to the Treadstone brainwashing program that created Bourne.

However, the scheduling of Oz and Bourne could mean that Weisz will only be able to join one of the films.

Which presents her with an interesting choice – the actress has favoured both political dramas and out-of-this-world fantasy in her past, but which will win out this time?

The Bourne Legacy commences filming this September with director/writer Tony Gilroy.

Witch? Or which? Of Bourne and Oz, which film would you prefer to see Weisz in? Drop us your verdicts below...

      I couldn't be more excited that she's "back" but I seriously hope that if there's a schedule clash she'll go for Oz.
