Casting Call

Jeremy Renner Cast in Bourne Legacy

Is Jeremy Renner the most in-demand actor in Hollywood? He's already attached to three potential franchises, with the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol, and The Avengers, and now, the two-time Oscar nominee has been offered the lead role by Universal Pictures in the Tony Gilroy-directed The Bourne Legacy. It's a spinoff from the Matt Damon Bourne films, and Renner will play a brainwashed operative from a covert government program even more dangerous than Damon's Operation Treadstone. The star of The Hurt Locker and The Town is expected to sign on quickly for the role.
