Bourne again, as Aaron Cross takes up the mantle of Matt Damon in this early publicity still...
Here's the first officially released picture from The Bourne Legacy, in which Jeremy Renner (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Thor, 28 Weeks Later) picks up the action where Matt Damon left off in the highly successful adaptation of the original novels by Robert Ludlum. Taking over the directorial reigns is Tony Gilroy, who was on scripting duties for The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum (Doug Liman and Paul Greengrass were behind the earlier movies)...

Me, I'm a big fan of the first movie, a serious detractor of the second and thought that The Bourne Ultimatum had some brilliant moments in the context of a Blade II-style noisefest (visual/audio - just general overkill).
In cases like this, where an actor lower down the food chain has to step up to the plate of a superstar, I'm keeping an open mind. And at least The Bourne Legacy is going to be slightly less bewildering than 2012's very quick-off-the-mark Spider-Man reboot, in that at least some of the characters from the previous Bourne universe are back for continuity, including Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn. New to the franchise are Edward Norton, Rachel Weisz, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac.
The Bourne Legacy is released in August 2012 in the UK.
