The sequel to "The Bourne Legacy" has found its director, Deadline has learned. Justin Lin, who directed the last four "Fast and Furious" movies, has been tapped by Universal to serve behind the lens for the upcoming fifth installment of the spy action thriller series.
Jeremy Renner is expected to reprise his role as the successor of Matt Damon's Jason Bourne who became the main focus in the first three films. Renner's Aaron Cross will continue his journey in a story penned by Anthony Peckham ("Invictus", "Sherlock Holmes").
Lin, who left "Fast and Furious 7" to "Insidious" helmer James Wan, follows in the footsteps of Tony Gilroy (2012's "The Bourne Legacy"), Paul Greengrass (2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum", 2004's "The Bourne Supremacy"), and Doug Liman (2002's "The Bourne Identity").
Supported by Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton, the last "Bourne" film has so far collected an estimated $276 million. An "untitled new Bourne movie" is scheduled for summer 2015.
