“There was never just one.” Well, that’s a nifty way to explain why Matt Damon isn’t in the latest installment of the Jason Bourne franchise, The Bourne Legacy. Damon’s out, and Jeremy Renner is in as another victim and/or participant in shady Project Treadstone. This first stylized trailer (complete with Inception-esque “brannngsss” and “brrahhhhmmms”) introduces us to Renner’s character – a bruiser from Reno who is on the run after showing some impressive stuff to all those government heavies who’ve gone through this already with Jason Bourne. Don’t you think Joan Allen‘s Pam Landy is just exhausted by now?
Join the program and check out the trailer for The Bourne Legacy after the break.
The film’s cast is rounded out with Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach, and Oscar Isaac, who are joined by Bourne vets Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn, and Scott Glenn (all reprising their roles).
The Bourne Legacy opens on August 3rd. [Apple]
