The Bourne Legacy Featurette Featuring Jeremy Renner

The Bourne Legacy Featurette Sorry, but all this ‘The Bourne Legacy‘ marketing just doesn’t get old. Anytime a great franchise merges with one of my favorite actors, I get excited. This reminds me of the time I first heard Daniel Craig would be taking over James bond 007. The thought of it immediately made sense. I must confess, when I heard Matt Damon was out of Bourne, I said, ‘the series is finished.’ Then I heard Jeremy Renner was in and I thought, the series isn’t finished, its just taken the scenic route.


Another reason The Bourne Legacy works without Matt Damon, is the fact that Tony Gilroy has been involved in the franchise since its conception. He wrote the screenplays for The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum. As Rachel Weisz aptly stated, “He knows the material as well as anyone in the world.”  


So, here we go again with new marketing. Universal has released a new featurette with some new footage and talking heads. The film Co-stars Ed Norton alongside old Bourne favourites Joan Allen, Albert Finney and David Strathairn, The Bourne Legacy opens in the UK on 13 August 2012 and in the US August 10th. James Newton Howard composed the soundtrack which will be released on July 31st if you’re interested.
