Jeremy Renner isn't playing Jason Bourne, but he's taking over the Bourne franchise for Matt Damon in The Bourne Legacy. Renner's also not the first actor or actress to become the new face of a franchise. Here are 10 other franchise recasts:

Bruce Banner - Eric Bana/Edward Norton/Mark Ruffalo: Bana signed for three Hulk films, but was replaced by super fan Norton when Marvel re-acquired the rights. Norton re-wrote The Incredible Hulk and starred in a hit, but was unable to come to a deal when a role in The Avengers was available. Ruffalo filled in, and was given positive reviews.


Review: 'The Bourne Legacy' Has Its Moments But Lacks Originality

8/8/2012 8:37am EDT
The Bourne Legacy
So what happens when Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass decide that they no longer want to be a part of the super successful franchise known as Bourne?

Do the producers say fine and walk away from their billion dollar cash cow or find another way to keep it going? Silly question, right?

Which brings us to "The Bourne Legacy," written and directed by Tony Gilroy (writer of the previous Bourne films) and starring Jeremy Renner as the new super spy who the evil CIA wants to kill. Sound familiar? Of course it does, and that's the problem.

You've seen this same plot before...many, many...

Rachel Weisz Tried To Her Change Name

Rachel Weisz
Actress Rachel Weisz was rebuked by her agent for changing her name at the start of her career because her chosen moniker made her sound like a porn star.

The Constant Gardener star grew so tired of teachers botching the pronunciation of her surname, she altered the "weird" spelling in a bid to avoid confusion while breaking into the entertainment industry, but the 42 year old's efforts were shot down by her manager because he didn't want casting directors to get the wrong impression.

She explains, "I did try and change it. In England there's this catalogue called Spotlight, where the ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Hunger Games,' 'The Raid: Redemption,' & More

The Hunger Games Poster
Honestly I didn’t have high hopes for the Jonah Hill/Channing Tatum comedy “21 Jump Street,” but I was very pleasantly surprised last week. I laughed my ass off at the antics of the two hapless cops sent back to high school on an undercover mission. Equal parts parody and homage, it simultaneously mocks buddy cop movie clichés and celebrates them. Hill and Tatum are the perfect team, thoroughly convincing you that they’re best buds. My Grade: B+

Things have quieted down a bit at the box office this week in terms of the number of films coming out, but I think a lot of that has to do wit...

Lions Gate Entertainment
The Hunger Games hits theaters Friday in what looks to be a battle for box office gold (it’s already sold more pre-sale tickets than any of the Twilight movies, according to Fandango). And while it’s current 100 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes is reassuring, anxious fans still have a week to go before they’ll know for sure if director Gary Ross paid good enough tribute to Suzanne Collins’ literary franchise.

Before then, let’s take a look back at Hollywood’s best and worst popular franchise adaptations...

Rachel Weisz Cosmetics Ad Banned In Britain

Rachel Weisz
A cosmetics commercial starring Rachel Weisz has been banned in the U.K. after officials at a watchdog group ruled the L'Oreal ad misrepresented what the product could do.

Scottish politician Jo Swinson complained to the Advertising Standards Authority about the L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Repair ad, claiming it "misleadingly exaggerated" the performance of the product because Weisz's skin was digitally altered to make it look smoother, and officials have upheld the complaint, stating the commercial can no longer air in its current form.

ASA bosses have also ordered L'Oreal chiefs to avoid...

Family drama "Dolphin Tale" has stunned movie experts in America by landing at the top of the box office in its second week on release.

The surprise hit, about a dolphin with a prosthetic fin, has netted over $37 million in 10 days - more than most film pundits expected the Harry Connick, Jr. movie to make in its entire run.

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies 50/50
After hearing all the hype about “Drive,” I couldn’t believe how much I hated it. It starts out promising: director Nicolas Winding Refn has some cool backseat perspectives of the driver (Ryan Gosling), and a sleek electronic soundtrack gives his shots of LA a seedy, neon glow.

However the directing quickly becomes pretentious, since Refn frequently reuses the same types of shots. Then the 80s style pop starts to feel COMPLETELY wrong, especially when you’re hit by unexpected, excessive violence on screen. These things would be more tolerable though, if the film effectively built drama...

Rachel Weisz lights up Lucky's October issue. She's the thinking woman's movie star with very—very—strong opinions about footwear. Newlywed Weisz opens up to Lucky about having more children, her upcoming film Dream House and growing up in a "freaky place."

Highlights from the interview:

She smiles again, nervously, proclaims her fondness for Baby Gap and then—an interesting thought in passing, considering her new husband: "There's nothing like a blue-eyed boy in a stripy s...

Kate Winslet has joined forces with fellow British actresses Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz to rally against the cosmetic surgery trend in Hollywood.

The Titanic star is adamant she won't ever go under the knife and has formed what she's dubbed the 'British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League' with fellow Oscar-winners Thompson and Weisz.

Style Stars Of The Week: Freida Pinto, Rachel Weisz, And Selena Gomez

Freida Pinto and James franco
This week, our style stars are proving simple is better - unless you are up on stage.

First, we have Freida Pinto, who dazzled at the premiere of Rise of the Planet of the Apes in this beautiful green dress. The elegant number was picturesque when flowing due to the windy weather in L.A.

Rachel Weisz looked great as well in her red dress. We could have gone without the shoulderpad-like covers, but other than that we think it is a perfect outfit. She also has a pair of nude heels on - perhaps she and Freida are hopping onto a new trend?

Finally, we have Selena Gomez in this sequine...

Planet of the Apes
I was anxiously anticipating last week’s “Cowboys & Aliens,” hoping that it would effectively mix action and humor in the same way as director Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man” films. Favreau takes a more serious approach though, creating a stiff western that happens to include science fiction elements. While his idea is admirable, the movie is marred by poorly written dialogue and slow pacing. For more of my thoughts, check out my review.

Coming to theaters this week are the sci-fi prequel “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” the body swapping comedy “The Change-Up,” the international drama “The ...

Rachel Weisz
Actress Rachel Weisz almost missed out on her starring role in upcoming thriller The Whistleblower - she initially snubbed the part as a mom-to-be because she couldn't cope with the harrowing plotline.

In the movie, Weisz plays real-life whistleblower and Bosnian peacekeeper Kathryn Bolkovac, who brings to light a child sex-slave scandal allegedly being covered up by the United Nations.

The actress was first offered the part in 2006, when she was expecting son Henry with her then-fiance, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky - but the star wasn't mentally or physically prepared to tackle t...
