Good news movie fans…Matt Damon is to reunite with director Paul Greengrass for another installment of the brilliant Bourne franchise!
Damon is easily one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood and following the disappointing last effort which saw Jeremy Renner take over the reins in the spy series, Matt has decided to give fans what they’ve been asking for and will once more become the kick-ass Jason Bourne. Damon had always stated that director Paul Greengrass’ involvement in the project was crucial to his return and now it appears a deal has been done that will see both parties return.
The Bourne Trilogy (minus that Jeremy Renner movie) was one the best action series of the 21st century so far, and 2002’s Bourne Identity made a genuine star of Damon, so much so that it forced the makers of Bond to go back to the drawing board to re-invent their spy to keep up! No word yet on when we can expect the sequel, but rest assured it will be one of the most hotly anticipated action movies when it makes it’s return.
