Jeremy Renner covers the latest issue of Empire Magazine photographed by Sarah Dunn.
On taking over the Bourne franchise: “That’s a huge responsibility. I had to think about what that would mean for my family, my friends, my personal life. It shifts all those relationships in different ways. We can’t just go have a cup of coffee somewhere. So it affects what they’re doing and I had to consider that.”
On how his new lead character, Aaron Cross: “He’s coming from a completely different background to Jason. He knows exactly who he is; he signed up to this … He wants to be part of a team. I can tell you he was in the military then he joined this program. He’s a person who wants to be part of something. He had nothing going on as a civilian so he became part of this military organisation. He just wants to belong and have a sense of purpose. But then it’s taken away.”
