Tony Gilroy Discusses The Bourne Legacy

Tony Gilroy Discusses The Bourne Legacy
Tony Gilroy, director of the "Bourne" franchise, spoke with MTV news recently, about some changes that will be seen in the next film of the franchise, "The Bourne Legacy".

By now, everyone knows that Jeremy Renner will be taking over the leading role, but there will be some techniccal changes as well. They have decided to ditch their trademark "shaky-cam" visuals. "Everybody in the world ripped us off. [That style] been done to death at this point. [The style is] on TV three nights a week, much less Bond and everything else. The worst thing that could have been done would be to just slavishly follow some cookie-cutter pattern of visual style and storytelling style."
He aslo said that the film is a bigger movie in the terms of the journey of it and the scale of it and the amount of stories in it and where it's going… You thought you were seeing the world, and this movie is telling you that there's a much larger world, a much larger conspiracy beyond this."

We will also see a different story for Jeremy Renner from Matt Damon's. Gilroy said, "The whole second film ['The Bourne Supremacy'] is about an apology. It's really about this guy trying to morally come to grips with the conflict between who he thinks he is and what he's done. This character in this film has no moral conflict whatsoever. Jeremy Renner's character has the reverse of amnesia. He knows exactly where he's come from. He knows exactly what the stakes are if he doesn't achieve his journey. It's a very different tone, yet it will be very rewarding to people."

"The Bourne Legacy" is slated for an August 3, 2012 release.

Countdown to the release of The Bourne Legacy, with the iPhone Movie Clock App.
