The actress is not completely foreign to roles involving intense action as part of the cast film “The Mummy”, “The Mummy Returns” and “Constantine”, but noted that the fourth installment of the Bourne franchise contains more reality than any other film in which she played before.
“Like everything else in this film, the stunts were very realistic. I dare say that were scary and semi-controlled. They could be perfectly controlled because of real locations, traveling with a motorcycle through Manila – Philippines. Were in real situations, jump from the bridge on the bus in motion. To be honest, it was terrifying. I had to pretend not scared because, in general, even I was terrified”, has confessed the Oscar winner.
Rachel Weisz expressed warm appreciation to the distribution colleague Jeremy Renner, who believes that he has the physical qualities that recommend him as a hero of action films: “I taught the skills of Jeremy, which are not few. Is physically fit for action scenes.”
Although “The Bourne Legacy” directed by Tony Gilroy relies little on novels by Robert Ludlum, Rachel Weisz said that the story is original and remove than literary inspiration, ensuring that fans will not be disappointed the subject kept largely secret studio Universal Pictures: “I think that explains things is very revealing. Do you think you know everything? Know nothing. People whom I have believed in power are actually only pawns. I think it is extremely interesting and exciting”.
