In an exclusive featurette premiering on EW, Jeremy Renner talks about taking over the Bourne franchise from Matt Damon in The Bourne Legacy.

“Audiences love this franchise. It’s pretty exciting to take on such a responsibility. I find it to be really really interesting character, really separate and different than Jason Bourne,” Renner explains. “Aaron Cross is asked to join this program, then gives his life over, no matter the good or bad. So it has a whole new spin on how and why these super soldier-spies are the way the are.” Watch the video, below!

The Bourne Legacy opens in theaters on Aug. 10.
