We all saw The Bourne Legacy, and it’s obvious that this won’t be the last time we will see Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner). After escaping his American chasers in Manila, he and Rachel Weisz rent a dilapidated fishing boat and heads somewhere in Palawan.
It got me thinking, are they going to Spratlys in the West Philippine Sea? That spots of islands that is being claimed in full or partial by a string of nations within the area? Because if that is the case, the sequel can be pictured something like this–they will be captured by Chinese navy doing its rounds within the area. And then they will be imprisoned in a remote Chinese facility. Then the American will rescue them. It will be a very political and power-flexing storyline.
Are you listening, Tony Gilroy?
