Dominic Cooper - Dominic Cooper For The Bourne Legacy?

Dominic Cooper is being considered for 'The Bourne Legacy'.

The 'Mamma Mia' actor is being lined up by director Tony Gilroy alongside a host of other high-profile stars to screen test for the film, which will see a leading man take on the mantle of Matt Damon's performance as Jason Bourne in the previous three movies.

Although Dominic is the frontrunner, Deadline.com reports Joel Edgerton, Garrett Hedlund, Luke Evans and Shia LaBeouf are also under consideration and all are set to audition for the role at the beginning of April.

The movie, which is being developed by Universal, is expected to be a sequel to the previous three instalments, but Matt Damon's character will not be involved.

However, the Hollywood hunk has previously revealed he is keen to work on the series again in the future in some capacity, but only with original director Paul Greengrass.

He said: "I'd do it again with Paul. Universal doesn't actually own the Bourne character - the estate does - so technically I could go to Warner Bros. and Universal could read about it online."
