The Bourne Legacy Trailer: Jeremy Renner Takes Over Bourne Franchise [Video]
The Bourne Legacy will be hitting theaters this summer but the movie won’t be starring Matt Damon as super spy Jason Bourne. The fourth installment of the series will rely instead on Jeremy Renner, who will be stepping into the shoes of Aaron Cross.
The new Bourne movie won’t exactly continue the story of Jason Bourne but it will take place in the same fictional world. According to the CS Monitor, the movie will follow the story line of a new Treadstone super spy, Aaron Cross, “whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.”
Damon won’t be returning for the new movie, but the film hasn’t lost any star power. Jeremy Renner will be joined by Bourne regulars Albert Finney, David Strathairn, and Joan Allen, and writer / director Tony Gilroy is adding Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz to the cast.
Here’s “The Bourne Legacy” trailer.
What do you think about The Bourne Legacy? Will the franchise be able to continue without Matt Damon?
Damon said that he’s “really pulling for this one, even though I don’t have anything to do with it. Selfishly, it’s bad for me if that movie doesn’t do well.”
Jeremy Renner and The Bourne Legacy will hit theaters on August 3rd.
