Jeremy Renner & Matt Damon to Team Up in 'Bourne Legacy' Sequel?
As can be seen in the most recent kick-ass trailer for The Bourne Legacy, it's clear that the events of the spin-off starring Jeremy Renner take place around the same time of the original Bourne franchise starring Matt Damon, or at least during The Bourne Ultimatum. While we catch a glimpse of Damon on news reports in the trailer, we're not sure whether or not he'll actually show up in a small cameo. However, producer Frank Marshall recently spoke with Empire for a cover story and mentioned that his dream sequel to The Bourne Legacy would see Damon and Renner teaming up. That sounds pretty damn great!
Marshall said, "You see there are several different programmes in the movie with different skill sets. All possibilities are open. My dream is that in the next one we see Matt and Jeremy team up.” Does that mean there's the potential for another spin-off from one of the other assassins that appears in the film to chase Renner's character? Perhaps, but the most exciting prospect is having Renner and Damon working together to take down this government program. The Bourne Legacy shows that this goes far beyond the hands of Treadstone, Jason Bourne's employers, so there's plenty more to learn. For now, we'll have to wait for The Bourne Legacy to hit theaters August 10th, after the recent slight release delay. Thoughts?
