Hello, old friend.

That Renner is so hot right now.

Points to the casting agent who noticed the similarities. Both Jeremy Renner and Julian Assange enjoy faces that could be described as “squishy,” so the other considerations are rendered moot by this squishiness.

It’s been over a year since we were hit with a deluge of Wikileaks-based projects, none of which have come to fruition, leaving us to wonder if anyone, anywhere even cares about Wikileaks anymore.

The scandal of Julian Assange, the Internet rebel who some claimed created international transparency, and others claimed performed thousands of acts of treason, has since died down, but that could just mean we’re no longer sick of the story, so maybe we’re ready for a movie.

Glass is half-full, right?

Apparently the turn is Renner’s idea, who presumably wants to play a different type of wanted man after The Bourne Legacy.

‘Bourne Legacy’ Trailer Does Nothing To Clarify Its Premise http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/bourne-legacy-trailer-does-nothing-to-clarify-its-premise/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/bourne-legacy-trailer-does-nothing-to-clarify-its-premise/#comments Wed, 08 Feb 2012 20:43:32 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=244887 I wasn't Bourne yesterday. Sorry, I had to say that.

The new Bourne Legacy trailer has hit the Internet, and while it looks to be in keeping with the previous Bourne installments (equal parts shoot-’em-up and political/spy thriller), what we don’t know is why Jeremy Renner‘s character is in The Bourne Legacy?

“He’s Treadstone without the inconsistency.”

“He’s an Outcome agent.”

“We’ve never seen evaluations like this.”

Thanks, trailer, but that doesn’t really answer my question.

This preview of the fourth Bourne film, the first without star Matt Damon, shows us Jeremy Renner getting indoctrinated as an agent, under the tutelage and supervision of the added Edward Norton, but it’s unclear from this clip exactly what the connection is between him, Treadstone, and Jason Bourne.

Oh well. I’m sure it will be explained, as Bourne has proven pretty methodical with its plodding.

On the other hand, he jumps on a tree in the snow, and that’s pretty darn neat.
