He'll join the already cast Jeremy Renner (in the lead role, but not as Jason Bourne) and Academy Award-winner Rachel Weisz.
This is odd because Norton's resume, as of late, has been full of offbeat independent films. Ed's last big budget film as The Incredible Hulk in 2008. Norton was not asked to reprise the role of Bruce Banner in Joss Whedon's upcoming movie, having the role taken bu Mark Ruffalo.
Ed is great in anything he takes on so I'm excited to see his role as an arch-enemy spy or something close to it.
