The first details of The Bourne Legacy, starring current credibility magnet Jeremy Renner, have emerged, via Renner himself who spoke to Empire Magazine.

The actor, who was doing the publicity rounds for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol at the time, spewed. "My character is called Aaron Cross, but he ends up having a bunch of different names." He added "For fans of the franchise, it has that same ticking clock, but it's a new programme and new characters. It's that same deal [with Treadstone], it's just a new set of agents with a different leash. It's the same tempo and pace but more expansive and bigger. The differences are pretty vast but you'll know it's a Bourne movie."

Michael Clayton helmer Tony Gilroy directs the film, while Ed Norton and Rachel Weisz also appear.
