JUSTIN Lin is to direct the next Bourne movie, which should also see Jeremy Renner reprising his role as Aaron Cross.

The former Fast & Furious stalwart has come on board to direct the follow-up to 2012’s The Bourne Legacy.

He will join returning producer Frank Marshall, who has been with the franchise since its earliest inception with The Bourne Identity.

It is still very much early days in the development of the ‘sequel’, with no script writer even on board at this stage.

It also means that Lin could become involved in another project.

The director left Fast & Furious 7 because of its accelerated schedule, saying that he felt he needed more time to re-charge his batteries following the demands of Fast & Furious 6.
