    And if you recall, the Bourne franchise's main man Matt Damon will not be in the fourth installment.

    Renner's character won't be a replacement for Bourne, however.

    "This is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel," director Tony Gilroy explained to Hollywood Elsewhere back in 2010. "No one's replacing Matt Damon. There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter…this is a stand-alone project.

    "The easiest way to think of it is an expansion or a reveal," Gilroy went on. "Jason Bourne will not be in this film, but he's very much alive."

    The Bourne Legacy is set to be released Aug. 3.
