Matt Damon could wind up being Bourne again.
News broke on Monday that Universal Pictures has begun negotiations with “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum” director Paul Greengrass for Damon’s return to the franchise. A film centered around Jason Bourne may be in development, in tandem with the recently announced fifth franchise film starring Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross.
“We’re gonna follow Jeremy’s character,” producer Marshall said shortly before Legacy’s release. “Everything else is wide open. That’s the great thing about this now. The table is set to go any direction we want to. But we will, I’m sure, follow Jeremy and see what happens.”
“As far as the future,” added Renner, “I’m excited that the architects and the creators behind this whole thing have cleverly left it wide open for fans like myself to wonder what’s going to go on next.”
In the past, Damon has made it clear that the only way he will return to the franchise is if Greengrass signs on to the make the Bourne film. If this deal goes through, there is a possibility that Bourne and Cross will be sharing the screen. All Bourne fans share your thoughts in the comments below.
