Matt Damon And Paul Greengrass Reportedly In Talks For More 'BOURNE'

Twitch broke the news on Monday that actor Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are joined in talks to return to for one more installment in the Bourne franchise. The news comes virtually a year after Damon spoke to Movieline about the possibilities of his return since actor Jeremy Renner's look in The Bourne Legacy last year.

"There has not been any movement," he stated. "I've usually been open to it as extended as Paul Greengrass directs, I do not feel he's going to do it." Damon went on to clarify the difficulties and challenges that could come with Greengrass at the helm to adhere to the events right after Legacy, saying "from what I comprehend, it sort of relives [The Bourne Ultimatum] from a various viewpoint. What that means, because they use our actors and characters, is that what ever they said [in Legacy] is true and so we'd have to acknowledge it in any Bourne movie that we'd do. And that makes it truly hard," Damon also insinuated the challenge of continuing Bourne's story following the initial 3 films in which the character was driven to discover his identity.

Considering that then, stories about the film's development have been minimal, though the interest is nonetheless there, as previously insisted by Universal chairman Adam Fogelson who sat down with an interview with The Hollywood Reporter writer Matthew Belloni in February. When asked about plans for franchise after Legacy, Fogelson answered with the following:
"The point of the last film was to create a universe, a globe and characters that give us a lot of freedom and flexibility in how we go forward. Yeah, the movie didn't perform the way the last one particular did. It also did not cost what the last one particular did. It performed a lot more along the lines of how the first 1 did. I totally see us performing much more Bourne, one hundred percent yes. Matt has talked about the possibility of coming back, and we totally respect that and are excited if and when he wants to have conversations. But I consider the last movie gave us a massive bunch of choices to pursue a next chapter."

Bourne trilogy writer Tony Gilroy directed The Bourne Legacy (2012), the fourth film of the franchise which branched out a new storyline in the franchise primarily based on a series of novels by the late author Robert Ludlum. Its industrial achievement didn't match the accomplishment of its predecessor, the Greengrass-directed 2007 release of The Bourne Supremacy which recapitulated the $ 1.2B franchise. Nevertheless, it was enough right after earning $ 275 million worldwide at the box workplace to get a fifth film started, according to news broken at Deadline about Renner's return earlier this month, in addition to a new screenwriter. 

Damon lately reaffirmed his interest in the franchise to reporters while attending the star-studded Los Angeles premiere of his newest film, Elysium.And with now two films in development, there may possibly even be speak of a achievable crossover in between each characters. It really is quite early to tell, of course, but it appears as if things are headed in that direction. But I want to know what you consider.
