1 of 17: The narrative architect behind the 'Bourne' film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: 'The Bourne Legacy.'

The writer/director expands the 'Bourne' universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero, Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. The movie also stars Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton.
