Variety has heard from sources that Jones will play a "superior" CIA officer in the movie, not unlike the characters that Chris Cooper, Brian Cox, Edward Norton, and David Strathairn played in past Bourne films.

The new Bourne movie doesn't have a name yet, and official plot details are being kept under wraps. The action film opens July 29, 2016, starring Damon, Alicia Vikander, and Julia Stiles.

Paul Greengrass, who directed the most recent entries in the series starring Damon, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, will return for the new film.

2012's The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, is the most recent entry in the series.

Jones won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for the 1993 movie The Fugitive. He is also known well for the Men in Black franchise, along with No Country for Old Men.
