The Bourne Legacy frenzy: Unnamed sources report Edward Norton, Daniel Craig sightings
It’s official. The Bourne Legacy fever is now an epidemic. Everything Bourne-related-from hoax auditions to unconfirmed sightings of Hollywood stars-has made it to the news. Now, if only we had some other way of easily confirming which news bits are true and which aren’t, then life would be so much easier.
The sightings of The Bourne Legacy’s Jeremy Renner in Makati and Boracy are, thankfully, confirmed as true. For now, the sightings of Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz’s husband Daniel Craig have to be filed in our "Allegedly" folder. To date, Weisz has literally been the most visible The Bourne Legacy star, as she was photographed on the Leveriza St. set.
It’s official. The Bourne Legacy fever is now an epidemic. Everything Bourne-related-from hoax auditions to purported cast additions, as well as unconfirmed sightings of Hollywood stars-has made it to the news. Now, if only we had some other way of easily confirming which news bits are true and which aren’t, life would be so much easier.
Then again, the secrecy surrounding the film has only brought about a slew of reports citing sources who refuse to be named. Consider the ABS-CBNNews.com report, which cites an unnamed source who claims that The Bourne Legacy actress Rachel Weisz’s husband, actor Daniel Craig, was also in the country. According to the report, the said source said he "saw the James Bond actor at around 10 a.m. on Wednesday (January 11) but he allegedly declined to have a picture taken with him so people wouldn't know that he's also in the Philippines." The source added that Craig already left the country on Wednesday evening. The report did not indicate where the source saw Craig.
ABS-CBNNews.com also quoted another source who claimed that Weisz’s co-star Edward Norton, the film’s villain, is already in the country. The source even said that he spotted Norton hanging out with fellow Bourne actor Jeremy Renner by the "poolside of a hotel in Makati." According to the report, "Norton is allegedly staying at the hotel's presidential suite." Some online rumors allege that Norton is staying at the Peninsula Manila.
ABS-CBNNews.com noted: "The Hollywood stars have yet to officially face the media." The report added that the movie’s publicist (also not named in the report) "hoped the Hollywood stars won't be misinterpreted because they want to finish the movie first."
To date, only Weisz and Renner sightings have been confirmed as true. Unless solid proof is presented that Craig was indeed here and Norton is definitely in Manila, their sightings would have to be filed under our "Allegedly" folder. (But since Norton and Craig are pretty talented actors...maybe they are/were walking around in disguise.)
