Out with the old in with the new. This seems to be the ethos behind “The Bourne Legacy”, Universal’s latest entry into the celebrated spy series. With original star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass departing, Jeremy Renner (“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”, “The Hurt Locker”) and writer Tony Gilroy (“The Bourne Ultimatum”, “Michael Clayton”) step into the creative breach. Aiming to move beyond the Jason Bourne story, “The Bourne Legacy” explores the idea of other super-agents, individuals possibly even sharper and deadlier than Damon’s initial maverick on the run. Fresh from stints working alongside action stalwarts Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner feels like an ideal actor to fill the void, bringing the same fearsome physicality and raw thespian talent that Damon provided in flicks past. Both
Renner and Gilroy have challenged Award’s bodies over the last few years, indicating that Universal are keen to maintain the high standards of previous outings with “The Bourne Legacy”, the studio and film-makers looking to expand on the world that Damon’s Bourne adventures could only hint at. The bone-crunching action beats, snazzy musical score and extreme paranoia will likely remain, but Gilroy also appears motivated by the idea of layering out this world of espionage further, introducing new characters, ideas and secrets to the already intriguing mix.
“The Bourne Legacy” will be released nationwide this August. Check out the trailer above.
