New Bourne Legacy Trailer

The Bourne Legacy: Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz | A Constantly Racing Mind

As it has gone on since I was a kid i am sure it will go on for the Bourne films.  With  Jeremy Renner as a new operative replacing both Matt Damon and the Jason Bourne character. Without Paul Greengrass as the director and Matt Damon as Jason Bourne/David Webb, I guess this is a spin-off of the series.  Although there is a book by Robert Ludlam (Jason Bourne's creator) there is seems to be no connection with the book other than the title.  However, we may actually be in good hands as Tony Gilroy will take on not only the script writing job but the directorial job as well. Tony wrote all three previous Bourne scripts and is also known for films like "Michael Clayton," and "State of Play." 



Returning as Pamela Landy is Joan Allen ("Get some rest, Pam. You look tired") who actually was a good guy in the last two Bourne films ("The Bourne Supremacy,"  "The Bourne Ultimatum." Also returning is bad guy Albert Finney reprising his role as  Dr. Albert Hirsch who we know was the guy in charge of brain washing David Webb into Jason Bourne.  But, these characters are seen only on news clip footage. 

New to the series is Rachel Weisz ("The Mummy," "Constantine")  plays Marta.  As you can see in this trailer she is only on for a flash.  The same goes for Edward Norton ("Fight Club," "American History X").  Jeremy Renner, who has played both good guys and bad guys and looks like a spy.and as we have seen in films like "The Hurt Locker,"  is a pretty good actor.

What do you think of the "Bourne Legacy?"
