Oscar-nominated actor Jeremy Renner is said to be staying @ the Peninsula and his co-stars will be arriving in the country on Sunday, January 8, 2012.
According to a very reliable source. Jeremy Renner had shoot a scene earlier today @ EDSA Rotonda- Pasay.
Manila will be the setting for the “climax” or the last 20 to 25 minutes of the film entitled Bourne Legacy.
One of the scenes to be shot will be a car chase in the Edsa-Taft Avenue area in Pasay City which, in real life, is notorious for round-the-clock traffic jams. Can a car chase really go far in the chaotic, ever-congested streets of Metro Manila? Only in the movies!
Lead actress Rachel Weisz will be riding a jeepney in said movie.
A chase scene will also be shot at the MRT (Metro Rail Transit) line.
In this movie (Bourne Legacy), Manila will be filmed as Manila and not as a stand-in for another city.
Manila is part of the story. Allegedly the storyline is that Bourne’s group comes to Manila in search of a rare medication and some forces are trying to stop them.
According to some experts, the filming of Bourne Legacy in Manila is a good thing. They said that this film will bring us back on the map. They hope that in the future, more of these foreign movies will feature Manila or the Philippines.
Some parts of the film will also be shot in scenic spots in Palawan province.
Bourne Legacy is the fourth installment of the blockbuster series. The first three had Matt Damon play the title character, Jason Bourne.
