‘Bourne’: Ato Essandoh Joins Matt Damon in Sequel

Ato Essandoh has joined Matt Damon in the next installment of the Jason Bourne franchise.

Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones are also on board for the film, and Julia Stiles is set to reprise her role.

Paul Greengrass is back to direct and co-pen the script with Christopher Rouse. Frank Marshall will produce the action-thriller alongside Jeffrey Weiner for Captivate Entertainment. Greengrass, Damon, Greg Goodman and Ben Smith also produce. Rouse and Henry Morrison serve as executive producers.

Plot details are unknown at this time. Production is currently underway with the film set to bow on July 29, 2016.

Damon’s three Bourne movies, the first of which was released in 2002, grossed nearly $1 billion cumulatively at the worldwide box office.

Essandoh currently stars on HBO’s “Vinyl,” the upcoming drama series set in 1970s New York. The show, which premieres in 2016, also stars Olivia Wilde and Bobby Cannavale. The actor played Dr. Matthew Freeman on BBC America’s gritty TV series “Copper” and has also appeared in “Girls” and “Blue Bloods.” Essandoh had supporting roles in “Django Unchained” and “Blood Diamond.”

He is represented by Abrams Artists Agency, Sinclair Management and attorney Ryan S. LeVine.
