Renner recently spoke with Empire about taking over the 'Bourne' franchise, confirming the new character plot line and also assuring fans that, while this movie will be different, the spirit of the last three films will not be forgotten.
'The Bourne Legacy' currently has an Aug. 3, 2012 release date, three months after Renner's other action blockbuster, 'The Avengers,' hits theaters. Tony Gilroy, who wrote the previous two 'Bourne' films, directs.
'My character is called Aaron Cross, ... but he ends up having a bunch of different names. For fans of the franchise, [The Bourne Legacy] has that same ticking clock, but it's a new programme [sic] and new characters.' So is Treadstone still involved? 'Yeah, it's that same deal, it's just a new set of agents with a different leash. It's the same tempo and pace but more expansive and bigger. The differences are pretty vast but you'll know it's a Bourne movie.'
