Matt Damon back for more Bourne
Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are returning to the Bourne franchise. Universal Pictures is in talks with both actor and director for a fifth Bourne film that will see Jason Bourne back in the story.
A fourth installment, The Bourne Legacy, was released two years ago and was more of a spin-off than a sequel to the original three films, since the focus was on Aaron Cross (played by Jeremy Renner), a genetically altered assassin, who is targeted for death.
If this deal moves on quickly enough, Universal is hoping that they’ll make the July 15, 2016 release date they had previously set for an untitled Bourne sequel, that was thought to continue the Legacy story, with Renner involved.
