It’s going to be a very busy summer for action star Jeremy Renner as he not only co-stars in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Hawkeye, but Renner shows off what he can do without a bow and arrow in the upcoming The Bourne Legacy, which will be released later this year on August 3rd.
Written and directed by Tony Gilroy, who penned the previous three Matt Damon-starring Bourne movies, this film takes a side look at the Bourne-iverse, and another agent from “The Outcome program” that got screwed by the man and is looking for some payback. Extreme payback!
Admittedly, we all have our concerns about this franchise going forward without either Damon or director Paul Greengrass, but can he refuse the year of Renner so out of hand? I think not.
The Bourne Legacy, stars Renner who’s joined fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn return from previous Bournes.
