We are SO on board with this!
Universal has officially chosen Jeremy Renner to take the lead in the upcoming film, The Bourne Legacy.
Jeremy will not be playing the role of Jason Bourne, the role that made Matt Damon so famous, but will be a new character in a spinoff that will begin production in September.
Like Jason Bourne, however, Jeremy will be play a character that works for a covert government program.
Jeremy has been nominated for Oscars for his roles in The Hurt Locker and The Town so you know this will be good.
In fact, we're pretty sure it's going to be EPIC. We're SO happy he's been chosen for the new Bourne films.
What do U think? Is Jeremy a good choice for the Bourne films??
