Sounds to us like Matt's word vomit actually had quite a bit of meaning behind it!
To recap - last week, Matt Damon slammed Bourne writer Tony Gilroy, and referred to his Bourne Ultimatum script as "unreadable."
Fortunately, he did apologize, and then he opened up further about his plans to possibly return to the Bourne franchise one day!
Now, Damon has opened up further on why he said such negative things about Gilroy, and it sounds like he was set off when he saw that Bourne Legacy offices opened up right next to his Elysium set:
"[Those offices] opened up right outside my trailer. I was seeing this every day, and then I came back to New York and did this interview and kind of blurted it out…It was idiotic of me to say anything. At the end of the day, it's between me and Tony, and we'll figure it out or we won't."
Aside from that, it also sounds like there's been a larger long-term issue between Bourne writer Tony Gilroy and director Paul Greengrass….and clearly Damon is on Team Greengrass.
Let's just hope they're able to work everything out so that we can possibly see Matty return to his Jason Bourne role one day! All types of body parts crossed that it works out in the end!
What do U think? Were Matt Damon's comments against Tony Gilroy warranted???
