First photo of Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy

Nothing all that exciting.  It's the first official photo of Jeremy Renner in the upcoming, The Bourne Legacy.  Who would have thought, Jeremy Renner was the go-to guy to take over movie franchises.  A little over a year ago, I wrote about Renner possibly replacing Tom Cruise in the 'Mission Impossible' franchise.  In the same post, coincidentally, I was talking about the 'Bourne' franchise moving on without Matt Damon.  At the time, I didn't know Renner would be taking over THAT franchise as well.

It's official of course, Renner plays a new character living in the Bourne universe.  The character is Aaron Cross.  The primary villain in the film, will be played by Edward Norton.  Rachel Weisz will join returning actors, Albert Finney and Joan Allen to round out the cast.  Tony Gilroy, who wrote the first trilogy, will director The Bourne Legacy.  I'd like to see a trailer, but all the pieces look to make up a great puzzle.  I'm looking forward to seeing what Gilroy, Renner and Norton can do with the franchise.
