The ‘realistic’ Bourne Legacy pushed back a week

The fourth “Bourne” film will be a continuation of the series with Jeremy Renner as the lead. The film has been pushed back a week as co-star Rachel Weisz praises the tone of the film.

Weisz says her character “a nice, normal, regular person” who is thrown into a life-or-death situation alongside new franchise protagonist Aaron Cross (Renner).

“The tone is very realistic,” Weisz told Vogue magazine. “I’m not playing a superhero, I don’t have superpowers. I don’t even have a gun. That’s really what I love about it, that as this type of film goes it’s not implausible at all.”

She went on to reveal that Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne is “in the periphery” of the story, but not centrally involved.

“It’s about a new military program, and I am thrown together with Jeremy Renner’s character by circumstance, because, well, we need each other,” she explained.

“Bourne Legacy” will come to theaters on August 10th instead of the 3rd.

Universal’s full statement:

Just as The Avengers demonstrated marketplace sustainability that well outpaced traditional patterns earlier this summer, the industry expects a similar trajectory for The Dark Knight Rises. Moving one week further from its release will give The Bourne Legacy an even greater opportunity to maximize its opening box-office potential. Moving to Aug. 10 will also allow us to extend valuable promotion for the film across all NBCUniversal platforms during the Olympics, which will dominate television and digital audiences beginning July 27. We are excited about this new chapter in our Bourne franchise and confident that Aug. 10 is the right date for our film and for our industry as a whole.
