James Franco as Jason Bourne?

| Filed under: Film FlickersJames Franco

james franco rumored as candidate for jason bourne role in new movie

Do we think James Franco is hardcore enough to play Jason Bourne?

In Franco's new movie 127 Hours, he cuts his own arm off, so yeah…we think he'll be fine.

According to a source at the after-party for Franco's new movie, Bourne screenwriter Tony Gilroy "made a beeline for Franco, asking to be introduced to him."

Another source close to Gilroy said "He was just there to see the movie."

Clearly, it's just speculation at this point, but we'd be very curious to see how James Franco would do in the new Bourne movie.

What do U think? Would U like to see James Franco as Jason Bourne?

    I like James Franco, but, NO. I'd rather see Matt Damon….what the hell happened? Why is he not in the next film?

  2. 2

    NO. No no no. Matt Damon = Jason Bourne! James Franco = funny man!! Besides, his best stuff is his indie stuff..

  3. 3

    um… no. There is no Jason Bourne without Matt Damon. Besides, why make another Bourne movie?? They've already ruined it enough.

    I dont get why they would change the main character like that. makes no sense. I can't see anyone as Bourne other than Matt Damon.

  6. 6

    I would love to see James Franco in anything!! Love him!!

  7. 7

    I would rather see Matt Damon as well …. but was he hardcore enough to play Jason Bourne ? See James Franco could be a good fit. Kind of like James Bond … they will always be compared.

    Matt Damon or fuggedaboutit!!!

  9. 9

    I think it's Damon or nothing…

  11. 11

  12. 12

    I like/sorta love James, but there is no Bourne movie without Damon. Now if they had Damon and Franco in the next Bourne movie that would be a smart move!

    Matt Damon or no more Bourne movies, you cant replace the lead like that.

  17. 17

    James Franco could play Bourne´s gay, flaming, long-lost younger brother.

    the bourne legacy it is not centered around jason bourne, if James Franco is going to be the movie he would more likely play Stephan, the young protege, which the story kinda centers around… jason bourne in this story is a much older man.

  19. 19

    NO!!! I wanna see Matt Damon play Jason Bourne. That said, yes, I DOI think James could handle the role. He's a terrific actor and could handle the role nicely. But WHY Mario? Why not Matt?
