Matt Damon Confirms Return to ‘Bourne’ Franchise


Matt Damon is to reprise his role as Jason Bourne in a new installment of The Bourne Identity franchise.

In September, rumors suggested Damon would portray Bourne once more, but the actor said he would only consider returning to the series if Paul Greengrass, who directed two of the movies, worked on the project.

Damon’s longtime pal Ben Affleck let the news slip during a red carpet interview with on Friday, telling E! Online, “Well, (he’s) going to be doing a Bourne movie next fall when I’ve just completely lost any semblance of physical fitness…”

Damon, who also attended the Project Greenlight launch event, adds, “Yes, next year… It’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”

He last appeared as Jason Bourne in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. The franchise continued for a fourth film, The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner as a different agent character, but Damon chose not to work on the project.

Are you excited about the confirmation of Matt’s return to the series?
