Matt Damon is Returning To Do Another Jason Bourne Movie

Matt Damon is returning for another Jason Bourne Movie.

It looks as though Matt Damon is returning to the Bourne series. In May, he told CNBC that he'd be willing to reprise the action hero role, despite the role had been passed to Jeremy Renner, so long as there was a good story. According to Deadline, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are reuniting to produce another Bourne movie.
I’m told that the studio is so bullish on this that the intention is to make the re-team the next Bourne film to go into production to make the July 16, 2016 release slot that Universal had previously assigned to an untitled Bourne film. That would mean it would step in front of the spinoff sequel that is to reprise Jeremy Renner and be directed by Fast & Furious architect Justin Lin. That film, which began with the Tony Gilroy-directed The Bourne Legacy, remains in development. Universal intends to continue that series and to broaden its franchise base, much the way that Marvel cranks out superhero films. (Via Deadline)
If this is true, that means we will have two separate Bourne movies going on at the same time. One series featuring Matt Damon and the other featuring Jeremy Renner. Maybe, a cross over movie by 2020 with both Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner. Related: What do you think? Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook.
