THE BOURNE LEGACY
Due out: August 16
Stars: Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Joan Allen
They say: Operation Outcome agent Aaron Cross is enlisted to clean up the mess left in his wake after the disappearance of Jason Bourne.
We say: In other words, Matt Damon doesn’t want to do this anymore. But Jeremy Renner ( The Hurt Locker) is more than happy to fill in.
Close up: Respected writer- director Tony Gilroy wants Bourne fans to know: ‘‘ It is not a sequel. Look at it as a spin- off that takes the Treadstone conspiracy in a whole new direction.’’
Wide shot: Damon hasn’t ruled out returning to the franchise one day. But only if his favourite director, shaky- cam king Paul Greengrass, is at the controls.
