The new trailer for The Bourne Legacy just hit a little while ago and it looks like earlier thoughts about the film being a reboot aren’t as accurate as we suspected. It now looks like this is a full on sequel.
Along with the Jeremy Renner, the film also stars Albert Finney, Joan Allen, Scott Glenn, Stacy Keach, and Oscar Isaac. The Bourne Legacy is set for an August 3rd release.
The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.
For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.
