The Bourne Legacy Teaser Trailer: Jeremy Renner Kicks Some Ass
Universal Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton. Tony Gilroy, the writer who provided the script backbone for the three Matt Damon Bourne movies finally gets his chance at directing the Bourne Series. This trailer is pure action setting up the world that there was always more than one agent in the Treadstone project. I’m really excited at the prospects of this new chapter in the Bourne universe.
The Bourne Legacy will release on August 3, 2012.
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.
For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.
