Making a fourth Bourne movie without Matt Damon seemed like a terrible idea, until I heard that Jeremy Renner was chosen for his replacement! This cast change is not an unannounced switch like a 90’s sitcom mother, Jeremy will be an entirely new character named Aaron Cross. Sorry Jeremy, you’re just not good looking enough to make people forget Matt Damon is missing. Check out the new trailer after the jump!
The most troubling change in this series is the Director, Doug Liman, has been replaced by Tony Gilroy. Gilroy did help write the original three Bourne movies, so there is still hope with him. Renner has proven he can be an action film bad ass numerous times (if you have not seen ‘The Town‘ you really should) and ‘The Bourne Legacy’ trailer doesn’t disappoint! Might be a huge summer for Jeremy, not only is Bourne coming to theaters August 3rd but he is also Hawkeye in ‘The Avengers!’
