Before we got The Bourne Legacy there was a lot of back and forth about whether Matt Damon would make another Bourne movie. While he never completely ruled it out, he did say he wouldn’t come back without director Paul Greengrass – and at the time the helmer wasn’t interested.
It seems things have changed though, as Deadline reports that Universal Pictures is finalizing deals with Damon and Greengrass for a new Bourne flick. It was Matt himself who seems to have opened the door, saying back in May that he was open to playing Bourne again, and also hinted that Greengrass wasn’t completely averse to the idea if they could find a story that interested them both.
It’s bad news for Jeremy Renner though, as he’s due to star in a follow-up to Bourne Legacy, which Justin Lin is set to direct and currently has a July 2016 release date set. However if it all comes together for Jason Bourne’s return, the Renner movie is likely to get bumped with the Damon film taking over that release date.
It’s not known what the plot might be or who will write the script.
