Next BOURNE Chapter on the Way with Jeremy Renner Starring

The fourth "Bourne" film in the franchise, which starred Jeremy Renner instead of Matt Damon, racked up $276 million at the worldwide box office. True to prediction, another installment is on the way, with Renner still attached to star as the title character.

Screenwriter Anthony Peckham has been hired to pen the script, to continue the storyline of Renner's Aaron Cross from Tony Gilroy's 2012 "The Bourne Legacy". Gilroy has been the franchise's previous screenwriter, in addition to stepping up to the director's seat for the last film. Peckham's recent writing credits include "Sherlock Holmes" and "Invictus".

Last year as well as a few months ago, producer Frank Marshall revealed his dream meet-up for the franchise, which would be between Renner's Aaron Cross and Damon's Jason Bourne. Damon has revealed that he has no intention on reprising his role without Paul Greengrass at the helm, which doesn't seem like a probability. He also said he wouldn't know where the character would go after he regained his memory in the third film.

I love Renner as an action star but definitely felt the fourth film was lacking in the script department, especially compared to the strong trilogy prior. Hopefully they bring out the big guns for the next installment.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
