New York, August 14, 2012 -  ­"The Bourne Legacy," the fourth installment of the multi-billion dollar spy movie franchise, which topped the weekend box office in North America just last weekend, has found a bona fide action star in Jeremy Renner (agent Aaron Cross); a sweltering, bustling action sequence location in Manila whose climactic chase scenes ­on foot, in car, and on motorcycle add "visceral kick to the chaos," according to Wired Magazine; and a slew of talented Philippine-based theater, film, and television actors ­- John Arcilla, Madelaine Nicolas, Ruby Ruiz, Anne Garcia, Lou Veloso, and Adrian Talinga, among others  - that share brief yet considerably memorable scenes with Renner and the film's leading lady, Rachel Weisz (virologist Dr. Marta Shearing).
