Some familiar faces have returned to the "Bourne" franchise.

It looks like "The Bourne Legacy" won't be a complete reboot, as both Joan Allen and Albert Finney have signed on to reprise their roles from the original "Bourne" adventures, according to Variety.

Joan Allen will return as CIA Deputy Director Pamela Landy, the driven Jason Bourne hunter in the second film of the original trilogy, "The Bourne Supremacy," and one of the rogue agent's greatest allies in the third installment, "The Bourne Ultimatum."

Albert Finney was a surprise addition to the series, appearing in the last act of "The Bourne Ultimatum" as Dr. Albert Hirsch, the man in charge of Operation Treadstone, the behavior modification program that gave birth to Jason Bourne.

No word yet on how these two fit into the new "Bourne" spin-off, though we're sure at least Allen is in for more sessions of staring at giant computer screens as CIA minions furiously type away on their keyboards.

Joan Allen and Albert Finney join a cast that includes Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton and Oscar Isaac. This new round of spy games is written and directed by regular "Bourne" scribe Tony Gilroy.

"The Bourne Legacy" will hit theaters on Aug. 3, 2012.
