So, ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ wasn’t the last one after all. With Matt Damon calling it quits on the series, Jeremy Renner takes the lead in this fourth film, with Edward Norton on baddie duty and Albert Finney and Joan Allen seem set to reprise their roles as Dr Albert Hirsch and Pam Landy respectively. Filming is taking place in New York, The Philippines and Canada – the plot’s carefully under wraps but you can bet that conspiracies and politics play a hefty part in the action-packed proceedings. Rachel Weisz is the likely love interest.
The Bourne Legacy is an upcoming American action spy film and the fourth installment in the eponymous Bourne film series, which is based on the Jason Bourne novels created by Robert Ludlum and Eric Van Lustbader. The story sets off after the conclusion of The Bourne Ultimatum with Tony Gilroy as the director, screenwriter of the first three films. Matt Damon and the character Jason Bourne are not in this film, but Damon has not ruled out starring in any future films as long as Paul Greengrass returns as director. The film is named after but is not based on The Bourne Legacy, a Bourne novel written by author Eric Van Lustbader.
The films open August 3, 2012! See you there! 🙂
