Starring: Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton
Genre and rating: Action thriller, not yet rated
Plot: A new group of central characters are introduced in the fourth installment of the Bourne franchise, headed by operative-with-a-mysterious-past Aaron Cross (Renner).
Spin: Replacing Matt Damon — whose marvelous take on Jason Bourne places him in the pantheon of great Hollywood spies — is a daunting task. Renner, who shared the screen with Tom Cruise in the last Mission: Impossible film, will be helped by the guiding hand of writer-director Tony Gilroy, who penned the three previous Bourne movies.
