Jeremy Renner Now The Most Popular Man In Hollywood; Offered BOURNE 4

He used to be a cool character actor. Now Jeremy Renner is angling to be the next franchise hero.

That’s not what director Tony Gilroy wants, says Latino Review. According to the site Gilroy is looking to Oscar Isaac, but the fact that he’s mostly known as Blue in the flop Sucker Punch probably doesn’t much help his case. Renner, meanwhile, telegraphs seriousness and smarts, which hopefully tells audiences that The Bourne Legacy isn’t going to be xXx: I Forgot Who I Be.

* word coming down from this film is that it’s amazing, that it’s the best Mission Impossible movie and that Brad Bird’s career is about to enter a whole new plane.
