Jeremy Renner Takes Over Bourne Franchise.

This is a weird one indeed. Following The Bourne Ultimatum, (the third film in the highly successful spy franchise), star Matt Damon confirmed that he would not be returning to play the titular character Jason Bourne and any hope for fans that more films would be made died with that announcement. Or did they?

Earlier this week Universal Pictures revealed that actor Jeremy Reener, (The Hurt Locker, The Town), would be taking the lead role in the reboot/continuation of the Bourne franchise, but not as Jason Bourne. Renner will play an all-new character with, we presume, similar links to the CIA and Blackbriar. Thoughts?
