The Bourne Legacy is surely an up coming 2012 American action thriller spy film based on the novel with the same title written by author Eric Van Lustbader. The film is going to be the fourth installment on the eponymous Bourne film series, which are all based on the Jason Bourne novels written by Robert Ludlum and Eric Van Lustbader. The story sets off right after the conclusion of The Bourne Ultimatum with Tony Gilroy as the director, screenwriter of the initial 3 movies. Matt Damon, star in the 1st three movies, will not return for this movie, nor will his character Jason Bourne. Damon has not ruled out starring in any future films as long as Paul Greengrass, who directed the final 2 films, returns. The film is named after, even though apparently not based upon, The Bourne Legacy, a novel starring Jason Bourne.
Synopsis: Fourth installment from the Bourne franchise in accordance with an original story. As author/director Tony Gilroy explains, "This isn't a reboot or even a recast or a prequel. No one’s replacing Matt Damon. There is going to be an entire new hero, a whole new chapter…this is a stand-alone venture." Jason Bourne will not be featured on the film; Jeremy Renner will perform yet another assassin educated in the same training as Bourne.
