Last night we brought you the new “The Bourne Legacy” trailer which screened along with AMC’s live-chat Q&A with star Jeremy Renner & director Tony Gilroy at the AMC Century City in Los Angeles
Today we bring you the interview that AMC Movie News Managing Editor John Campea was able to conduct with Renner and Gilroy just prior to the event.
Take a look at the interview below in which they discuss how they have maintained the tone of the franchise while still brining something new to it and how the idea of an action star has changed over the years.
The narrative architect behind the "Bourne" film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: "The Bourne Legacy." The writer/director 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.
For "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 roles.
