Bourne Legacy red carpet premiere at State Theatre,
Sydney, Australia - 7th August 2012
Bourne Legacy tonight enjoyed its Sydney, Australia
red carpet premiere (and a bike stunt) at the world
famous State Theatre.
Jeremy Renner has seen his career take off in recent
years after appearing in a string of popular movies
including 'The Hurt Locker', 'Avengers' and 'The Bourne
Legacy'. The 41-year-old says it is impossible for
him to pick a favourite out of the vast number of
films he's starred in.
favourite movie... it's difficult to say," Jeremy
admitted to Sydney radio's Kyle and Jackie O. "It's
a bit like having to choose which is your favourite
features in the latest Bourne movie following the
departure of Matt Damon. He found it tough to abide
by some of the rules surrounding the top secret nature
of The Bourne Legacy's script.
flew the script in at midnight and you were allowed
to look at it for two hours before they flew it back.
I'm a slow reader anyway so I felt pressured,"
Jeremy explained. "I had to really rifle through
it! I mean what were they going to do, have it burst
into flames on me or something?!"
he felt stressed, Jeremy agrees with the concept.
The actor respects the need for secrecy with storylines
in the film industry.
are in the age where nothing is sacred or private
anymore. It gets to the point where no one wants to
come see movies if they know the ending anymore so
why spoil it for people?" Jeremy continued. "Especially
in a big franchise like Bourne where there is a big
agent Jason Bourne goes rogue as seen in the original
"Bourne" trilogy--CIA agent Eric Byer (Edward
Norton), head of the government's secret Outcome program
which has used a chemical process to create super
agents, decides to end that program by killing all
the agents in the field. One such agent, Aaron Cross
(Jeremy Renner) manages to survive the culling and
with the help of biochemist Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel
Weisz) goes on the run from Byers' agents as he tries
to get the chemicals he needs to survive.
Bourne Legacy" is a very interesting approach
to reviving a franchise because it's not a reboot
as much as a sequel that takes place concurrently
and overlapping with "The Bourne Ultimatum."
This idea is the brainchild of Tony Gilroy, who was
involved in the the first three "Bourne"
movies before directing "Michael Clayton"
and "Duplicity." He returns to the "Bourne"
The Bourne Legacy, 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.
The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers
Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar
Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan
Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their
buzz is that this is an awesome film, so be watching
out for release dates in your region.
