Jeremy Renner has been a talked about name in Hollywood as of late, starring in last year’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and this year’s mega-hit The Avengers, but let’s not forget about his other big summer film, The Bourne Legacy, which is a continuation of the series made popular by Matt Damon and his frequent collaborator Paul Greengrass.
Renner is filling in for Damon as another deadly agent on the run. This time Edward Norton will be playing the baddie and Tony Gilroy is directing.
I honestly forgot all about this film and that’s not a bad thing, because now we have yet another summer film to look forward to.
This newest image comes from Entertainment Weekly and it shows Renner and co-star Rachel Weisz on the run. It looks and feels exactly like an image from a Bourne movie and I think that’s great, because I was a little worried on the whole idea of replacing Matt Damon.
The Bourne Legacy opens in theaters on August 3rd, 2012. Expect a new trailer for the film in front of this Friday’s release of Snow White and the Huntsman.
