Let me just start off by saying that this is not an April Fools joke. Our friends at Latino Review are really reporting that a offer is about to go out to Jeremy Renner to take on the lead role in the new Bourne prequel film, Bourne Legacy.
Apparently director Tony Gilroy's first top choice to take on the role in the film was Sucker Punch’s Oscar Issac. Universal Pictures however didn’t approve of him. I don’t blame them, he was absolutely terrible in Sucker Punch.
Renner is a much better choice, and if he ends up actually getting the role I think he will make a pretty awesome Bourne. One can argue that he could be more of a badass Bourne than Matt Damon was. What do you think?
