The Bourne Legacy

Story by Jack Foley

THE next film in the Bourne franchise is due to hit cinemas on August 14, 2015.

The follow-up to 2012’s The Bourne Legacy will see Jeremy Renner in the role of Aaron Cross.

As yet untitled, the film will be directed by Justin Lin, of Fast & Furious franchise fame, and produced – as ever – by Frank Marshall.

Universal continues to hope that Matt Damon can be enticed back to the series for a potential team-up with Cross.

In addition to making the Bourne announcement, Universal also confirmed an August 8, 2014 release date for Luc Besson’s next film Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman. The French filmmaker’s latest work, The Family, is currently on release in UK cinemas starring Robert De Niro.
