Fresh off his success with Ghost Protocol and the record breaking Avengers, Jeremy Renner is set to relaunch the Bourne series. Today Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for The Bourne Legacy, the Tony Gilroy-directed spinoff film that stars Jeremy Renner as a Treadstone assassin, same as Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne in the Robert Ludlum novels.
Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton,Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac also star while Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn are back. Damon has left the door open to reprising Jason Bourne, and it looks here like they’ve allotted him ample room to do that while giving stage to the rising Renner. Frank Marshall produced with Captivate’s Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith. The film opens August 3. The movie looks to be crammed packed with non-stop action and I am on the Jeremy Renner bandwagon as he is currently one of my favorite actors. Let us know what you think about the new trailer.
