Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are Bourne again
So yeah, Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass, who partnered for The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, are in talks to return to the popular action franchise. This, of course, brings to mind a title from another espionage franchise -- Never Say Never Again.
The actor/director duo bowed out after the third Bourne film, but Damon has always said he'd return to the role that made him a superstar if the story was right and Greengrass was behind the camera. Universal pushed forward with a spinoff, The Bourne Legacy.
A sequel to Legacy is scheduled for summer 2016, but word via Deadline is the Damon/Greengrass Bourne will come out then. Ahhh, drama! The Legacy sequel, which has Justin Lin on board as director, is still in the works.
I am beyond pumped for another Damon/Greengrass Bourne. I love both of their films, and didn't mind Legacy at all. Who knows, maybe we'll get a Damon and Jeremy Renner Bourne movie one day.
