The Bourne Identity is an action-spy thriller film directed by Doug Liman and released in the year 2002. It is the first installment in the Jason Bourne film series. The famous actor Matt Damon is playing the role of Jason Bourne in this film series. The film is based on a novel of the same name written by Robert Ludlum. The story of the film revolves around the character Jason Bourne who is finding his true identity and suffering from psychogenic amnesia. There are various characters, including Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity, who have given fantastic performances in the film. But, who would be a great recast for the modern version of Jason Bourne film? In this article, we have discussed some of the best Hollywood actors and actresses who would be considered for the recasting of The Bourne Identity if the film has to be made today.
Jason Bourne: Chris Pratt
Matt Damon is the leading protagonist and performed brilliantly in the film The Bourne Identity. Talking about serious roles, Matt Damon can flourish in these roles. Chris Pratt is a young Hollywood actor and a famous candidate who would be recast in the newer version of Jason Bourne film. Fans have already seen him in the role of an action hero, and he is also a good looking man just like Matt Damon in 2002. Being a younger star, Chris can manage the entire Jason Bourne film series.
Marie Kreutz: India Eisley
The character of Marie Kreutz is portrayed by Franka Potente in the Jason Bourne series. She is a German actress and played the fantastic role of Jason Bourne’s girlfriend in the first two movies. A younger actress like India Eisley would be a perfect choice to play Jason Bourne’s girlfriend in place of Franka in the film. She holds considerable acting experience at such an early age and would be a better replacement for Franka. She is a beautiful and stunning actress and has also played the lead role in the TV series The Secret Life of the American Teenager and the film Headspace.
Alexander Conklin: Robert Patrick
The famous actor Chris Cooper played the role of the main antagonist in the film The Bourne Identity. Robert Patrick is one of the youngest actors in Hollywood and has a great experience playing the role of a likable antagonist. He would be a perfect choice to replace Cooper in the latest version of the film The Bourne Identity if the film was to be made today with new characters. Robert has played various villains in several famous Hollywood blockbusters such as Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Double Dragon, and Die Hard 2. So, he would fit into the role of Cooper very easily.
The Professor: Christian Bale
The character of The Professor in The Bourne Identity is portrayed by one of the most versatile and ageless actors Clive Owen. Although it has been 18 years since the original film The Bourne Identity was released, Clive Owen is still young enough to re-play the role of The Professor in the latest version of the film. To include the latest characters in this new Jason Bourne film, Christian Bale is one of the best actors to play the role of The Professor. He can adapt to any kind of role and perform it brilliantly. Christian has age and acting abilities similar to Owen. In this way, Christian would be an excellent replacement for Owen if The Bourne Identity was to be made today.
Ward Abbott: Benecio Del Toro
Brian Cox played the character of Ward Abbott in the 2002 film The Bourne Identity. Benecio Del Toro is a great replacement for Cox because he has already played various characters younger and older than his real age in various films in the past. Toro is an excellent Hollywood actor who can replace Cox in the modern version of Jason Bourne film.
After discussing some of the best actors in Hollywood, we have concluded that all of the above-discussed actors have great potential and ability to replace the old cast members of the film The Bourne Identity if it has to be made today.
