Movie News - It looks like more Bourne for Jeremy Renner. Universal has green-lit another movie in the spy thriller franchise with the 'Avengers' actor - who took over the lead role in the series from Matt Damon - set to reprise his 'Bourne Legacy' character, Aaron Cross, reports Deadline.

Because we are evil America who doesn’t deserve anything new, Universal has decided to add another film onto the Jason Bourne franchise.
But this new movie won’t actually star Jason Bourne: no, Matt Damon isn’t interested in that. No, Matt Damon isn’t sure where Bourne’s story would go, but that’s why Universal would rather dump money on the Tony Gilroy-created character of Aaron Cross (played the first time out by Jeremy Renner), who needs his Stims or something.
They’ve hired Anthony Peckham, the writer of Sherlock Holmes and Invictus, and Frank Marshall, Ben Smith and Jeffrey Weiner are back from The Bourne Legacy producing this new Bourne…ur…Cross Identity film, and that’s all that is known at the moment. Well, that and Universal seems allergic to attempting a new franchise. At least that’s the smell that’s coming off this, »
Universal Pictures is moving forward with a fifth installment in the Bourne franchise.
Anthony Peckham ("Sherlock Holmes," "Invictus") has been hired to pen the script for a film to continue the storyline of Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross character introduced in 2012's "The Bourne Legacy".
Those involved have tried to get Matt Damon back but it sounds like their attempts have failed if they're progressing without him once again.
'Legacy,' which grossed $276 million worldwide, showed Aaron Cross as a member of the black ops program Operation Outcome whose agents are genetically enhanced.
Once Bourne's actions lead to the public exposure of Outcome's earlier incarnations - Treadstone and Blackbriar - Cross goes on the run as the agency races to shut Outcome down and kill its agents.
Ben Smith and Jeffrey Weiner are set to produce.

Exclusive: Universal Pictures is getting the wheels moving on a fifth installment of The Bourne Identity franchise. I’ve heard that studio has hired Anthony Peckham to script a film that is designed to continue the storyline of Aaron Cross, the character that Jeremy Renner played in the 2012 Tony Gilroy-directed Bourne Legacy. Cross was among a group of agents who took part in Operation Outcome. Medically enhanced to be smarter and physically superior, the agents were targeted for termination. Renner starred with Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton. Frank Marshall and Captivate Entertainment’s Ben Smith and Jeffrey Weiner are producing the new one. This is all early days, but the studio wants to continue to build the spinoff character and storyline hatched by Tony Gilroy, who was so important in establishing Matt Damon‘s Jason Bourne character in those early films from the books by the late Robert Ludlum. »
