Jeremy Renner & Matt Damon to Team Up in 'Bourne Legacy' Sequel?

Matt Damon / Jeremy Renner

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?

    This will be the greatest thing to happen... Jeremy Renner is everywhere, i like the guy don't get me wrong but he is taking Mission Impossible series now Borne series and Possible Hawkeye spinoffs. I used to like asking people who would win in a fight Jack Bauer, James Bond, Jason Bourne, or Ethan Hunt...Cross two of those names off the list now. If Matt Damon comes back it would only be if Greengrass directs it with both of them. Crossing my fingers

    That would be awesome but first i wanna see if the spin off live to the expectations
  • Zanpher

    Make it happen. Just make it happen. No excuses Hollywood. Get it done. Yesterday.

    There's no way this is happening--not after Damon expressed his utter disgust in Tony Gilroy.

    First True Couple Action Ever They do it deliberately, Holleywood always keep its surprises on, Definitly they would make it , But If Legacy Win First. Still love Bond movies definitely but Bourne have very different structure and style ,Jason Bourne is : more " Believable , more " Sympathetic " , more " Realistic " , more " Popular " , more " Touchable " , more " Dangerous " , more " Serious " , more " Adult " , more " Superior " action character Bourne is Not Bond Copycat. Jason Bourne is Unique Action Guy with Undefeated Skills and Vulnerable Soul&Body. Moral Kill Machin. Honestly CANT WAIT to see Renner what did with his role

          dude, no one understands what you wrote. that was worse than kindergarten-like paragraphs.

            Sorry
          • Dominic A
            you don't need to be sorry . Not your fault he wasn't around when mentioned a small English difficulty a while back ... I understood what every thought u wrote was about . Jason isn't comedy , no , but maybe this is why Skyfall seems so action packed , with a more serious Bond . Cause they do see it as competition . Different studios I guess . As you see today in Sept, the movie got easily greenlighted ....

      "Bourne is Not Bond Copycat" Thank goodness it is not. However, dufus Damon thinks it is............. I will never believe, and would not have had I not heard and seen him in an interview..............such a whiny brat
      • Ehsan Davodi
        Rosalee Many critics say it too But obviously They tell wrong Bourne is Fascinating for me dude
  • BeepBeepRichie
    Matt Damon turned in one of the most satisfying trilogies of all time. I hope he leaves it at that.
  • Chris_G
    I don't see how The Bourne Legacy, dropping the franchises lead actor and being released 5 years after the last sequel...will be able to maintain the same level of success, let alone surpass it. I think this is one that's going to end up getting lost in the shuffle and more or less ending the franchise.
  • silentjay
    I hope it happens
  • Rosalee Adams
    I hope not Damon was such a whiner when Casino Royale came out....Oh they are copying Bourne and other hand wringing whiny statements The only thing he did not do was call for his 'mommy' to comfort him. I had no respect for him after that. I will go to see Bourne Legacy with Renner but the minute Damon sets his whinny little feet into a film I am out of there............
  • Isildur_of_Numenor
    I think this rumour is out just to get more people hyped up to see this film. It would be cool, but I'll wait for an official announcement.
  • JBrotsis
    Was jeremy in the bourne ultimatum? I haven't seen the third installment in awhile, but now that I think about it, was he the sniper that killed off that reporter who was investigating the Blackbird case in the phone booth?
    • deleted
      no..no jeremy in ultimatum...
  • OfficialJab
    If they were able to get Damon, I would be definitely for that. But not likely.
  • deleted
    what about adding Mr. Liam Neeson too...
  • Nielsen700
    I doubt it will happen, but it would be awesome.
