There has been four Jason Bourne films thus far. The first three served as a Matt Damon action vehicle and the last film served as a vehicle for Jeremy Renner. While Renner did not play the character “Jason Bourne” but instead took on the role of Aaron Cross. Slated for a 2015 release, Universal Studios has moved the films schedule back to the early summer of 2016.
The last Bourne movie grossed over 270 million world wide and took the franchise deeper into the world of undercover government agents. The series is similar to that of the Mission Impossible film of which Renner will return to in Mission Impossible 5 which in pre-production now.
Playing the government agent seems to be a fitting role for the actor who’s breakout performance in Academy Award winning The Hurt Locker as a bomb technician in Iraq helped land the role of Clint Barton a.k.a Hawkeye in the Marvel super hero franchise. Renner has carved out a niche’ for playing tough quiet authoritative roles.
In place of the next Bourne film Universal will fill the date with the biopic “Straight out of Compton”. The story is about the rise and fall of N.W.A. headlined by Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and Ice Cube. Justin Lin is set to direct the action thriller’s fifth installment. He is best known for his revival of the Fast and Furious pictures. Universal Studios is set to release the seventh film in that series in 2015. It will mark the last film of the late Paul Walker. (source)

Jeremy Renner has confirmed to Yahoo! TV that he will again play William Brandt in Mission: Impossible 5. He joins the previously-confirmed Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg in the December 25, 2015 release.
Asked whether he could possibly have a role in the second season of “True Detective,” Renner responded: “It’s kind of unlikely. In fact, I’m kind of strapped time-wise doing Avengers 2, and Mission: Impossible 5 is rearing its head, and then they want to do another Bourne movie. It’s unlikely I can find the time right now. And that’s all right. It’s just really high-class problems — pretty awesome to have. Even if I really wanted to do it, which I don’t, I couldn’t.”
The trio starred together in the Brad Bird-directed Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which opened in December of 2011 and earned an impressive $694.7 million worldwide on a budget of $145 million. We would assume that Paula Patton will also be back as Jane Carter, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. (source)
