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??

    Perfect Choice! This cat is going to rock this part and everyone knows it. Go for it Jeremy.

    Excellent choice on picking Renner……good choice to come up with a new character and not re-cast "Jason".



  3. 3

    Good choice … just hope the script and directing are up to the same calibre. The actor can only do so much.

    The only reason you're so excited about it Perez is because he's rumored to be gay. You're so transparent.

    Wasn't Matt Damon famous before the Bourne films?



  7. 7

    Um, Bourne did not make Matt Damon famous. Why are you such an idiot.

    I'm a big fan of the original Bourne Trilogy with Matt Damon, and although I do think that Jeremy Renner is a great actor in his own right - I'm still perplexed as to why this franchise needed to be re-cast/rebooted in the first place. I recall Matt Damon in an article saying that if Paul Greengrass et al. provided a quality script for a 4th installment in the series, that he was totally game. Also - it's not as if this is an 'origin' entry into the series with a younger actor to play Bourne in his early days - Jeremy and Matt aren't even a year apart in age - they're both 40! Anyways, I might still check it out if it looks good, but it'll be hard to see someone else playing Bourne, after Matt's stellar turn in the role.

    hate to agree with you - but excellent choice for Bourne

    They should have gone with a fresh face and an amazing actor, like Taylor Kitsch. Taylor, is the real deal. I'm so over Jeremy already. Yuck.
