Universal Pictures has released the first TV spot for their upcoming spy-thriller THE BOURNE LEGACY. Jeremy Renner takes the reigns this time around as our male lead Aaron Cross, an elite agent trained in a covert government program similar to the Treadstone facility where Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) was taught to kickass.
I know fans are going to miss Matt Damon’s appearance as Jason Bourne but everything I’ve seen this far from this film leads me to believe Renner will do just find in the lead role. Co-written and directed by Tony Gilroy, the action flick also stars Rachel Weisz, Albert Finney, Joan Allen, Scott Glenn, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac. Universal Pictures has scheduled THE BOURNE LEGACY for release on August 3.
Faced with the public and political fallout from the events of THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, the CIA decides to shut down “Operation Outcome,” the successor to “Operation Treadstone.” Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), an agent of Operation Outcome, and Stephanie Snyder (Rachel Weisz), a doctor who helped create the Outcome agents, must find a way to escape before CIA agent Byer (Edward Norton) can have them assassinated. This story introduces us to a new hero whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.
