Jeremy Renner to replace Matt Damon in “Bourne” franchise

The headline:  Jeremy Renner to take over ‘Bourne’ franchise from Matt Damon; Actor will play different character

The summary:  Jeremy Renner is set to take over the lead in the upcoming movie “The Bourne Legacy” from Matt Damon.  Renner will not portray Jason Bourne but instead will play an entirely new character.

The reaction:  Dislike!  A lot!

There’s only one Jason Bourne and only one lead actor in the Bourne franchise and that person is Matt Damon.  There’s no way you can label a movie “The Bourne Legacy” and not have the Jason Bourne character involved or the person who portrayed him in every film.

I hope this movie is successful but there’s no way it lives up to the original trilogy.
