Here Is Your New Jason Bourne
Universal Pictures just announced who Matt Damon is passing the Jason Bourne torch to.
Jeremy Renner! The Hurt Locker and The Town star has been cast to star in a new spin off series, where he will not be playing Jason Bourne, but rather an operative from a secret government organization “that is even more dangerous than the Treadstone brainwashing program.”
The Tony Gilroy directed film begins production in September.
So who did Renner beat out to star in this thing? Joel Edgarton (The Thing), Dominic Cooper (The Devil’s Double) Garret Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Luke Evans (The Amateur American).
Some commotion has been made about the fact that Renner is the same age as Damon, and also that Renner is going to be starring in the upcoming Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol.
