When we heard there was to be another Bourne movie we excitedly shrieked like little schoolgirls but then we discovered Matt Damon wouldn’t be reprising his role and Paul Greengrass wasn’t going to direct either. So where did that leave us? Well Jeremy Renner has now been shoe’d in for the lead role and Edward Norton, Albert Finney, Rachel Weisz and Joan Allen have all joined the cast for The Bourne Legacy directed by Tony Gilroy.
The twist with this particular franchise continuation is that it focuses on an entirely new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. In short a thinly veiled excuse to lead this cash cow back out to pasture. The trailer does look intriguing even though the old nail in a compressed gas canister looks a bit A Teamish.
