Jeremy Renner on the Bourne Legacy

Jeremy Renner on the Bourne Legacy

Jeremy Renner is a busy man at the moment, with involvement in not one but no less than three popular multi-million dollar franchises with releases spread across 2011 and 2012 including ‘Mission Impossible IV: Ghost Protocol’, ‘The Avengers’, and ‘The Bourne Legacy’.

Recently Renner has mentioned a few details about the Bourne franchise with the fourth film in the series ‘The Bourne Legacy’ currently filming. The character Renner plays goes by the name of ‘Aaron Cross’, and will involve elements of the shadow organisation involved with the ‘Treadstone’ program that was so central to the existing trilogy which starred Matt Damon.

Renner further commented that:

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.

Renner has increasingly come under the spotlight since his acclaimed performance in ‘The Hurt Locker’, and an excellent follow up performance in ‘The Town’. He can also be seen in 2007’s ’28 Weeks Later’.

With consistently strong performance and a busy schedule for the future this is an actor to keep an eye out for. You can see him next in ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ on 15 December 2011, and then as the superhero Hawkeye in next year’s ‘Avengers’ film.

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.
