Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass reuniting for Bourne 5

It’s almost official.

Matt Damon said the only way he would come back to the Bourne franchise was if Paul Greengrass would return as director. Universal Pictures are now negotiating terms with both Damon and Greengrass to reunite to make another Bourne film.

Deadline reported Greengrass and Damon are in the process of making a deal with Universal. After the success of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, Universal knew they had to make a deal to bring them back. Greengrass had previously commented that there was no more creative story left in the world of Jason Bourne, but apparently, there is now! So, we will have to wait until the deal officially closes.

As for Tony Gilroy’s 2012 spinoff The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner as another spy in the program, its sequel (directed by Fast Five‘s Justin Lin) may be held off from the July 2016 release date. Instead, the Damon/Greengrass film would probably take over that film date.

What are your thoughts on a possible new Jason Bourne movie?
