Calling all Bourne fans, the wait is finally over! After a lengthy search for a new leading man for The Bourne Legacy, Oscar-nominee Jeremy Renner has snagged the starring role!
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Jeremy will play a brand new character in the movie. As an agent, he’ll be in a different government program that initially focused on Matt Damon’s namesake role, Jason Bourne. Although Matt won’t appear in The Bourne Legacy, his character will have a presence in the new flick.
Looks like Jeremy’s career just keeps getting hotter and hotter. Known for his roles in The Town and Hurt Locker, he’s going to share the screen in December with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.
