Will Matt Damon Ever Make Another Bourne Movie?

Oh man. This actually might be exactly what the franchise needs!

At least, according to Matt Damon!

The actor recently opened up about why he and Paul Greengrass ultimately turned down the opportunity to continue the Bourne Identity franchise with a fourth sequel, but also expressed his approval of director Tony Gilroy and replacement Jeremy Renner succeeding them - and his hopes that the pair can kick ass on screen TOGETHER in a possible fifth movie!

He says:

“It’s a director’s movie and I’m sorry, that’s the first person you need, the director. I wouldn’t do it without him [Greengrass, who directed the previous two Bourne movies]. And he was ready to do one and they gave us a release date without a script, and he backed away. He just went, ‘I’m not sure we can guarantee it’s going to be as good as the other ones.’ And that was enough for me to take a step back. I don’t think the Gilroy Bourne has any bearing on our franchise. Because if it came out and bombed, we could just ignore it and make another one. But I don’t think it will. I think Tony’s really smart, he's a great director. My guess is that Bourne is going to come out and be great and be exactly what people want and there will be room for us to do another one and it’ll all work out. The guy’s got his memory back three times in a row now and if you hear that character say I don't remember again … you have other issues. It’s not amnesia, you have a learning disability.”

Ha! He makes a good point!

But we have high hopes for this new one - especially if it leads to Matt re-joining the series!

What do U think?? Are U excited for the new Bourne??

    No, he is to busy watching bulls get murdered.

    Watch the Rich Eisen podcast on the NFL Network on Thursday (12/15). I believe Rich also asks Matt about that.

    The first two were very good, after that, like the books, they get repetitive.

    I hate when they do that with the movies-can't they keep their egos and dollars in check to be true to the art! I loved the Bourne trilogy despite me and I wish Damon would've kept going with it. Damn! Now it'll be time and effort lost until the real Bourne appears again, if he does. Same thing happened with my Halloween which could never redeem itself, even with Jamie Lee's reappearance in the fucked up H20 film as well as Resurrection. If only Hollywood could be true to the fan base that pays for its movies!!!!!!
