(EW.com) -- After an exhaustive search for the right leading man, EW has confirmed that the lead role in "The Bourne Legacy" has been offered to Oscar-nominee Jeremy Renner ("The Hurt Locker," "The Town").
Written and directed by Tony Gilroy ("Michael Clayton"), the film is not a reboot of the "Bourne" franchise; Renner would play a new character within the "Bourne" universe, an agent in a different covert government program than the one that ensnared and pursued Matt Damon's Jason Bourne.
While Damon will not appear in "The Bourne Legacy," his character will be a presence in the new film as the title suggests. (Deadline first reported the story.)
Renner will next appear this December alongside Tom Cruise in "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol," and will play Hawkeye in Marvel Studios' "The Avengers," due to begin shooting later this year.
"The Bourne Legacy" will likely start production in September.

I never saw him as an action star until Ghost Protocol. He is a really good actor and I think he is going to be great in this movie. He was really good in The Avengers too.

I'll be totally honest and just say that it bums me out that they are making another one of these. I LOVE the Bourne movies and own each one. I thought that the trilogy ended the way it should, and making a new one is pointless.
