In this one, renner is joined by fellow series newcomers rachel Weisz, edward norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans albert Finney, Joan allen, david Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles. The men behind Treadstone and blackbriar decide to wipe out all traces of their shadowy operations including an operative named aaron cross (renner).
