Universal isn’t wasting anytime, they’ve unleashed this first image above of Jeremy Renner in THE BOURNE LEGACY, via USA TODAY part of its 2012 movies to look forward to.
So.. what do you think? Remember, Renner’s not replacing Damon, this is more of a sidetrack story..
Joan Allen who played CIA agent Pam Landy in The Bourne Supremacy and the great Albert Finney who played Dr. Albert Hirsch, an expert overseeing the assassin training project in The Bourne Ultimatum will both reprise their roles in THE BOURNE LEGACY from writer/director Tony Gilroy.
Scott Glenn (Sucker Punch) who played CIA director Ezra Kramer in The Bourne Legacy, he’s reprising his role again for the sidetrack installmentThis is done to make sure that the story will have ties to and is still kept within the same word as the previous installments. Stacy Keach would play similar type of role played by Allen and Finney
Starring Jeremy Renner, Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz…From writer/director Tony Gilroy, keep in mind once again that Matt Damon won’t reprise his role because the story will have a new hero (Renner) but the stories from previous three installments will still factor and trigger a wider conspiracy and it will end up with Damon returning again as Jason Bourne… So it’s not a sequel or a prequel, it’s more like shifting the focus to someone and something else related to the matter at hand before going back to Jason again.
