The "Bourne" franchise is carrying on without Matt Damon, and as the trailer for "The Bourne Legacy" tells us, "there was never just one."
Enter Jeremy Renner, who's filling the shoes of a new agent after Damon passed on continuing Jason Bourne's story.
Directed and written by Tony Gilroy, "The Bourne Legacy" sees Renner as Aaron Cross, although he refers to himself as Kenneth in the new trailer. Either way, we're told in the clip that he's part of the Outcome program –"Treadstone without the inconsistency" - and that he can heal remarkably well.
"Jason Bourne," says Edward Norton's character, Byer, "was just the tip of the iceberg."
What do you think of the trailer? Damon has said that he's "really pulling for this one, even though I don't have anything to do with it. Selfishly, it's bad for me if that movie doesn't do well."
We'll find out when "The Bourne Legacy" arrives August 3.
