Tony Gilroy was one of the guiding hands behind the entire series of Bourne films having made contributions to each of the first three film’s screenplays. He was never, however, charged with the pretty tough gig of realising the action scenes until he took over directing for this fourth film, a “parallel storyline” to the events of The Bourne Ultimatum.
Rachel Weisz adds a little something to most things, so it’s good to have her along for the mad dash and scramble too. The more running and jumping she does in the film, the more fun I’ll have, I expect.
The Bourne Legacy is released across the US on August 10th and the UK on August 13th.
