Jeremy Renner for The Bourne Legacy ?

It seems that we have a new Bourne, in the personality of Jeremy Renner.

Who is Jeremy Renner ? Jeremy Renner is an American actor and musician. Renner appeared in films throughout the 2000s, mostly in supporting roles. He came to prominence in films such as Dahmer (2002), S.W.A.T. (2003), Neo Ned (2005), and 28 Weeks Later (2007), and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his starring role in the 2009 Best Picture-winning war thriller The Hurt Locker. The following year he appeared in the critically acclaimed film The Town.

Deadline reports he is expected to sign quickly to play a new character in the spinoff film that begins production in September. Like the Jason Bourne character played by Matt Damon in the first three “The Bourne Identity” thrillers, Renner will play an operative from a covert government program that is even more dangerous than the Treadstone brainwashing program that hatched Bourne. The name Bourne will be used as a moniker and supposedly leaves it open for Damon to return.
Renner plays an operative in the upcoming Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol.
