Universal has debuted a full trailer for Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz. The film promise more high octane chases and ass-kicking stunts as Aaron Cross (Renner) attempts to escape from a government task force which is shutting down the entire Treadstone program by assassinating all its “assets”.
It’s great to see that the movie won’t be a Bourne movie only in name and that it will tie-in nicely with the previous movies by running concurrently with the events of The Bourne Ultimatum. It looks like Renner and Weisz will be quite excellent as the leads and it looks very promising so far.

The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.
For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.
