The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.

@Sortis

I agree, Renner is going to become really famous with all of these prime roles
MovieMann - 2/20/2012, 5:44 PM
The good thing is that though he might be more famous soon he is also a good actor.

@grifter

Lmao very true, I hope this movie is good so that matt Damon comes back and go against Jeremy and have some face off, that well be cool. Jason Bourne all the way.

I hate to say it, but I don't think Renner will ever hit that big star status. He will do okay and get quite a few roles, but I don't think he will be the draw that a Damon, Cruise, Clooney, etc. are. He just doesn't have the looks to be that big draw. Kind of in line with what Grifter said. :-P

@HipstersAREdouches : (awesome username by the way)
I agree. This film may turn out to be complete GARBAGE!!! Change the title, and I might be happy!

I really have a good feeling about this movie, Renner will probably do a better job than Damon . As long as they get rid of that " shakey cam" , man I hate that shit

good actor!!
I 'm a fan from the moment I saw 'SWAT'!

Been a big fan of Renner since he played a vampire in an episode of the first season of Angel, he made a big impression, he was really good. Reccomend Renner fans watching the episode 'Somnambulist'. He looked way different back then too, though I suppose it was about ten years ago now. I wonder if Whedon hired him for Hawkeye based on knowing him from Angel?

He was in Thor as the same character.

The tagline for The Bourne Legacy should be:


Don't Make Him Cross




Because the character is called Aaron Cross! Heh.

He's up to play Steve McQueen in a bio on his life , he has an unusual gritty look hes not a pretty boy , which is why he's good for these roles .

I like Renner, but not for Michael Knight, Momoa for Mike Knight.
KNIGHT3000 - 2/21/2012, 10:37 AM
opencurtain

I think Damian Lewis would be a better Steve McQueen
KNIGHT3000 - 2/21/2012, 10:39 AM
I used to have a Lesbian Boss that looked like a fat Jeremy Renner. Same hair cut and all. She too was a big KNIGHT RIDER fan.

You don't have to be generically good looking to make a crap load of good movies. My personal favorite example is Charles Bronson, or course.
mgeoff88 - 2/21/2012, 2:17 PM
I really liked his character in MI: Ghost Protocol. He was a lot like Hawkeye.

The trailer for this looked pretty good so I'm looking forward to this.

jeremy renner needs to play michael knight and kitt needs to be a charger
