Justin Lin to direct sequel to The Bourne Legacy


Justin Lin, otherwise known as the man who turned the Fast & Furious franchise into stuff of legend as he directed the series’ last four films, is now tackling his next ailing series, the Bourne franchise. While Matt Damon’s run through the Bourne Trilogy were well received, the last film starring Jeremy Renner, The Bourne Legacy, failed to carve an identity of its own and make an impact. 

Jeremy Renner is returning for the sequel with Anthony Peckham set to write. Although no title has been confirmed, Collider guesses that next film may be The Bourne Betrayal given it’s next in the series of books. Justin Lin is the perfect director for this. The man knows action setpieces, and if there’s anything a Bourne film needs, it’s action.
