The new thriller, which also stars Matt Damon, Vincent Cassel and Julia Stiles, is set for a July release
Little is known about the plot of the fifth film in the “Bourne” franchise, and while Alicia Vikander couldn’t say too much about her role in the movie, she did admit that her character is very “action-driven.”
“I’m not doing the conventional action but I’m very action-driven in this film,” Vikander recently told TheWrap. “But it’s not in the way most people would think.”
The actress compared her experience shooting the film to working on her previous projects, like the “The Danish Girl,” and low budget movies in her native Sweden. She admitted walking onto the massive “Bourne 5” set was a new experience.
“I came from Sweden where it’s like 30, 40 people, and here on ‘The Danish Girl,’ doing a British film, it’s 100, and then you end up on these sets, and I know on Monday or Tuesday we’re going to have 1,600 extras just in one scene,” she said.
Vikander also teased that filming has taken place in several countries in Europe and in Washington D.C. Currently, they are shooting in Las Vegas.
The 27-year-old has some stellar acting performances under her belt, such as “The Danish Girl” alongside Eddie Redmayne, “Ex Machina” costarring Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac, and “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” in which Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer starred in as well. Now, she is standing in front of the camera with her idol, Matt Damon.
“I hadn’t met Matt, I was just the biggest fan,” she said of Damon, who is nominated for an Oscar, as well as Vikander. “He’s very funny on set and then he’s just extremely cool as Bourne, but we all know that.”
