Jeremy Renner To Star In ‘The Bourne Legacy’: Report
Jason Bourne tried to remember his identity. Now, the films that bear his name will have a whole new hero. One report indicates that it will be an already well established action star.
Matt Damon’s time as the star of the “Bourne Identity” series is over, and the search his successor is over, the Latino Review reports. The site reports that a source indicated that “The Town” and “The Hurt Locker” star Jeremy Renner has been offered the lead role in the next generation of Bourne movies, starting with “The Bourne Legacy.”
If true, Renner is a strong, experienced choice, but not one that had been rumored to be on director Tony Gilroy’s shortlist in February. Then, potential Bourne 2.0 stars included Jake Gyllenhaal, Garrett Hedlund, Taylor Kitsch, Kellen Lutz and Tobey Maguire.
