Jeremy Renner Says Return Of Jason Bourne "Opens The World," Talks 'Avengers' Plus New 'Kill The Messenger' Clip

1 October 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since he rose to stardom with 2008’s “The Hurt Locker,” Jeremy Renner has proven a reliable and prolific leading man. And not long after “The Hurt Locker,” Renner landed in a handful of lucrative franchises. First came “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” followed quickly by “The Avengers,” and then in “The Bourne Legacy,” a franchise he took over from Matt Damon and in which he portrayed Agent Aaron Cross.  However, it seems Damon is poised to reclaim his starring role in the next Bourne film, which is slated for 2016. Renner is surprisingly excited about the notion, viewing Damon’s return not as a threat but as an opportunity to bring Cross and Bourne together on screen. "I think it really opens up the world and it keeps Bourne’s character active," Renner told HuffPost Entertainment. "I think Cross’ character is already going to continue to be active, [and] I think it will »

1 October 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

As predictions are being made for possible contenders at the 87th Academy Awards, the cinematography category has some Oscar veterans making a possible return and a few names could have more than one film up for contention.

Six-time nominee Emmanuel Lubezki has been mentioned as a contender for his work on Birdman, which could earn him a consecutive Oscar following his win for Gravity (2013) at the 86th Academy Awards. Though Interstellar hasn’t premiered yet, the trailer has brought Hoyte Van Hoytema, director of photography for Her (2013), into the mix as well. With two films that could be up for contention each, cinematographers Bradford Young and Robert Elswit have appeared on multiple lists as possible nominees at the upcoming Oscars.

Young, who has never been nominated for an Oscar, worked on A Most Violent Year and Selma, both of which have not yet premiered. Elswit, »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening of Kill The Messenger in St. Louis

30 September 2014 8:28 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua.

Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

Dwayne Johnson Will Star as a Secret Agent in a Robert Ludlum Story That’s Not About Bourne

30 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Because the sky is blue and grass is green and we all have to pay taxes and one day die, Dwayne Johnson is going to fulfill his destiny as an actor and machine-like human by playing a secret agent (a real one, not a silly one as he did in Get Smart). The world’s most lovable former wrestler turned Scorpion King turned adrenaline fueled action star confirmed over Twitter that he’ll be starring in an adaptation of The Janson Directive, a project that’s been in gestation over at Universal for some time. You’ve got competition, Jason Bourne — there’s a new Robert Ludlum-penned mystery man in town. With that tweet, Johnson also confirmed that The Janson Directive is being propelled forward with a script by Akiva Goldsman. It’s promising news when you hear that the Oscar-winning writer of A Beautiful Mind is penning the script; it’s another when you remember »

Jeremy Renner talks Matt Damon's return to Bourne and a possible crossover

30 September 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

A few weeks ago we learned that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are reuniting for another Bourne movie; and when the confetti cleared many wondered what would come of the other Bourne franchise starring Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross. Now Renner has opened up on what he thinks about Damon’s return and what might happen with the franchise. It’s important to note that the sequel to The Bourne Legacy was never shelved, just postponed, as Damon and Greengrass’s next »

Jeremy Renner Signed On For ‘The Avengers 3′ & ‘Hawkeye’ Spinoff

30 September 2014 4:58 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Jeremy Renner may have jumped into more movie franchises than he can handle. As it stands, the Oscar nominated actor barely has time to fit in passion projects like next month’s Kill The Messenger in between his blockbuster obligations. Coming off shooting The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the actor is currently working away on Mission: Impossible 5 – a series he signed a three-picture deal for after Tom Cruise personally convinced him to do so.

And next up, sequels are in early development for The Bourne Legacy where he may finally team up with Matt Damon, and Hansel & Gretel where the star will return alongside Gemma Arterton (once it finds a new director). It was this over-the-top schedule ...

Dwayne Johnson Confirms Role in Ludlum’s The Janson Directive; Akiva Goldsman to Write Script

28 September 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A couple of months ago Dwayne Johnson was reported to be in talks to star in Universal's adaptation of Robert Ludlum's novel The Janson Directive.  Now it has been confirmed that he is officially cast.  Not only that, but Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman will be writing the script (presumably a page-one rewrite of the draft John Hlavin was commissioned to execute a few years ago).  Make no mistake, Universal wants to fashion this into a Bourne style franchise for Johnson and I... have no problem with that.  It's gotta be better than The Bourne Legacy. The story follows a former consular ops agent who goes into business as a private security consultant after becoming uncomfortable with the high number of sanctioned killings as a covert operative.  I'm kind of looking forward to seeing Johnson do serious action work that doesn't have the wink and nod element built in (though »

Renner Talks Avengers 2, Mission 5, Bourne 5

27 September 2014 5:20 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jeremy Renner continues doing the press rounds for his new drama "Kill the Messenger" and offered Access Hollywood (via Movieweb) some updates on three of the high-profile sequels which he's involved in - the already shot "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the currently filming "Mission: Impossible 5" and the currently in development "The Bourne Legacy".

Avengers: Age of Ultron

"I think everything that worked in the first one is exponentially going to be better in this one. I think the comedic relief, I think the action, is going to be bigger. There is more time spent with all of the Avengers together as a unit on and off the clock, if you will, which is actually really fun. A lot of secrets are revealed and more secrets are posed."

Mission: Impossible 5

"We've got Christopher McQuarrie directing, and he wrote as well. He ended up writing a little bit on the last one. »

It was recently announced that Universal Pictures is in talks with Matt Damon and "The Bourne Ultimatum" director Paul Greengrass to return for another installment in the "Jason Bourne" franchise, possibly replacing Jeremy Renner's "The Bourne Legacy" sequel. Now that he's promoting "Kill the Messenger," Renner was asked whether he wants to star alongside Damon in a new "Bourne" film. "That's my hope. That's my dream. Will it happen? I do not know," he answered. "Last I heard is that Paul and Matt have cracked an idea, a reason to continue the 'Bourne' series." Renner continued: "We're still working on the Aaron Cross section of that and the worlds will definitely - hopefully - collide and they're still a part of each other. I think it makes it really exciting that I think even Universal is sort of like 'this is really fantastic news,' because now it's kind »

While doing press for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, Jeremy Renner offered a few updates on his upcoming projects Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mission: Impossible 5 and the sequel to 2012's The Bourne Legacy in an interview with Access Hollywood.

When asked about Avengers: Age of Ultron, which recently wrapped production, Jeremy Renner hints that everything will be bigger in the sequel, without giving away any specific plot details.

The Weird Story Of How Tom Cruise Convinced Jeremy Renner To Do Mission: Impossible

25 September 2014 5:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jeremy Renner has, almost by accident, turned into a bit of a franchise slut. Not only does he play Hawkeye in Marvel.s The Avengers, but he also took over from Matt Damon as the lead in The Bourne Legacy, appeared as the titular male star in 2013.s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and is now part of the Mission: Impossible ensemble thanks to his turn as William Brandt opposite Tom Cruise.s Ethan Hunt in 2011.s Ghost Protocol. That.s quite a lot characters and work for an actor to keep track of, and during a rather frank and turbulent discussion with MTV, Renner went to great lengths to describe how his life got so cluttered. Apparently, we can blame Tom Cruise's persistence. Renner put pen to paper on his deal to appear as Hawkeye "a good year" before filming was due to start on The Avengers. So as »

Renner Drops A 'Captain America 3' Hint

24 September 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

After existing under the radar for most of his career, Jeremy Renner became quite a hot commodity in Hollywood in recent years. Following his breakout role in Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker in 2008, then his subsequently well-received supporting role in Ben Affleck's big 2010 Oscar-winning movie The Town, Renner found himself on a lot of short lists. He became "the guy that's going to inherit the Mission: Impossible franchise from Tom Cruise," he- similarly- became "the guy that's going to take over as the focal point for a new series of Bourne films," and then he signed on to be part of Marvel's cinematic universe as Hawkeye. After griping, publicly, about wanting to play the character he "signed up for," following a very marginalized role in The Avengers, many wondered if the actor would perhaps like to see Hawkeye take center stage at some point.

Not so fast, says Renner. »

Jeremy Renner not clawing for a 'Hawkeye' movie, but kinda wants to be in 'Cap 3'

23 September 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Oh, for those long-ago days when the season of Renner was first in bloom! In the span of one calendar year, two-time Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner staged a franchise blitzkrieg, playing William “neo-Cruise” Brandt in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and Aaron “neo-Damon” Cross in The Bourne Legacy. And the jewel in the crown: A role in The Avengers, the highest-grossing movie ever made by anyone besides James Cameron. And not just any role: Renner was playing an Avenger! What could be better!

Well, as Renner himself admits in a new interview with MTV’s Josh Horowitz, Hawkeye had a pretty »

Jeremy Renner Talks 'Hansel & Gretel 2' Return; Will It Happen?

23 September 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, news broke that writer-director Tommy Wirkola had finished the script for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, but he was unsure whether or not star of the original, Jeremy Renner, would be able to return. Now, Cinema Blend has reached out to the actor for his answer, and while he doesn't know if he can squeeze this sequel into his schedule, he wouldn't balk at returning to the role of Hansel.

Jeremy Renner is not signed for a sequel. When Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters came out, it was not considered to be a franchise contender, and was even moved by the studio from its original March 2012 release date to January of last year, which is viewed as a dumping ground for films that are potential money losers. The movie proved to be a hit, though, pulling in $226 million worldwide from a $50 million production budget. A sequel was green lit, »
