The year 2015 is certainly going to be a jam-packed one for film and for big ones at that. Other than "Star Wars: Episode VII", "Jurassic World" and "Mission Impossible 5", the fifth "Bourne" film in the franchise is now getting in on the action. Slated for an August 2015 release date, Jeremy Renner is returning to star.
The last film "The Bourne Legacy" was the first film to star Renner as Aaron Cross instead of Matt Damon as the signature Jason Bourne character. The film was met with mixed reviews and grossed 50% less than the previous film, but the franchise still has a pretty solid built-in audience, so it's not very surprising that they're producing another one.
Instead of Paul Greengrass at the helm, who helped make the Damon films so popular, or Tony Gilroy who directed the last one, "Fast and Furious" helmer Justin Lin is stepping up to the plate for this one. This seems like a very strategic and smart move for Lin, who recently departed the car-racing franchise, giving James Wan a try at it.
Do you think this is a good release date for the film? Let us know in the comments section below!
