Universal Developing Another ‘Bourne’ With Jeremy Renner

Peckham on board to follow up Aaron Cross character

Universal is moving forward a fifth iteration of “The Bourne Identity” franchise, tapping Anthony Peckham to write the script to the next movie.

The story will center on Aaron Cross, the black ops character introduced by Jeremy Renner in 2012’s “The Bourne Legacy.”

Frank Marshall and Captivate Entertainment’s Ben Smith and Jeffrey Weiner are on board to produce the fifth “Bourne.” Marshall also produced “The Bourne Legacy,” which was directed by Tony Gilroy.

Matt Damon, who portrayed Jason Bourne in the first three films, indicated earlier this year that he would not return to the franchise unless Paul Greengrass was directing. Greengrass directed the second and third films.

Jason Bourne is based on the character created by novelist Robert Ludlum. “The Bourne Legacy” grossed $276 million worldwide.

Peckham’s credits include “Sherlock Holmes” and “Invictus.” He is repped by WME and Anonymous.

News of Peckham’s attachment was first reported by Deadline.com
