We’re only a few short weeks ago from our James Bond cocktease, “The Bourne Legacy”. Foreplay sure looks good this August, I tell ya, with director Tony Gilroy rubbing us up in all the right spots with an exciting looking “Bourne” spin-off that’s assumingly as smart as it is stunty. Naturally 007 venture “Skyfall” serves as the deed this year, but you’re going to want to feel up “Legacy” too… if this first clip is anything to go by.
Writer/director Tony Gilroy expands the “Bourne” universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac star, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.
