'The Bourne Legacy' Finds It's New Lead

Renner In The Hurt Locker
Yes, today is the day when we finally find out who the new Bourne star will be after Matt Damon confirmed he would not be in the fourth film (The Bourne Legacy) a while back. Deadline has revealed today that the search is now over and Jeremy Renner, who you will remember as playing the protagonist in the brilliant war film The Hurt Locker, will be playing the lead in the fourth film.

The news will I'm sure come as a relief to fans of the films who feared a young  and more popular actor would be cast thereby making The Bourne Legacy a complete farce. However they now have the capable hands of Renner to look forward to. He stunned us in the award winning The Hurt Locker and I really can't think of anyone better suited to the film series than Matt Damon himself. In my opinion fans will find the transition a fairly easy one and Renner should fit right in. Although the film will not focus on Jason Bourne as a character it still looks set to be one to look forward to.

Jeremy Renner now seems to be the go to guy to replace big anmes in film series they no longer want to do anymore. Apparently he has also been linked to taking over from Tom Cruise in the next Mission: Impossible film.

Filming on The Bourne Legacy will begin in September with a release date of August 2012 looking probable.
