Director Tony Gilroy yanks cameras on Bourne Legacy

With the next chapter in the Bourne storyline ready to unfold on the big screen tomorrow, Director Tony Gilroy has been more than open about his cut-down on massive camera movement for eye candy. In an interview with Now Toronto's Norman Wilner, Gilroy begins by noting how unexpected it was to be coming back to the series: "After I wrote Ultimatum, I was, 'Man, I'll never be back here again."
