According to Deadline, Universal Pictures hired Lin to direct the sequel to Tony Gilroyâ€™s â€œThe Bourne Legacy.â€ That film follows Aaron Cross, another operative being hunted down. Actor Jeremy Renner is expected to reprise his role as Cross.
Lin was very successful at reviving the â€œFast & Furiousâ€ franchise in the last three installments which grossed over $1 billion at the box office. Director James Wan (â€œInsidiousâ€) has now taken over to direct the next â€œFast & Furiousâ€ movie.
It is expected the next â€œBourneâ€ movie will be released sometime in 2015.
