Jeremy Renner in ‘The Bourne Legacy’

Despite Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon taking a break from the franchise the Bourne series is continuing this time with rising star Jeremy Renner in the lead role. Renner is currently on screen in the latest instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise, later this year he appears in Joss Whedon’s ‘Avengers’, before the newest Bourne film scheduled to be released in the second half of 2012.

The new film is directed by Tony Gilroy and will be his third directorial project. Gilroy’s previous films where he was attached as a director have included ‘Duplicity’ and ‘Michael Clayton’. Of course he was also attached to each of the previous ‘Bourne’ films as a writer on the screenplays.

With filming on ‘The Bourne Legacy’ well underway we’re starting to see some marketing reveals coming through including a teaser poster as well as the very first image from the set featuring Jeremy Renner as his character ‘Aaron Cross’ which you can see below. 

Stay tuned to AccessReel for more news on the ‘Bourne’ film including a trailer as soon as it’s available.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
