Matt Damon Says He’s Returning to ‘Bourne’ for 2016

Matt Damon has confirmed he’ll once again play Jason Bourne, with director Paul Greengrass back at the helm for a 2016 film.

Damon pal Ben Affleck revealed the news during a red carpet interview with E! Friday, and Damon quickly confirmed.

“It’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out,” he told E!. “Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”

Greengrass directed the second and third installments of the original trilogy starring Damon, The Bourne Supremacy (2004) and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007). Jeremy Renner picked up the franchise’s mantle for 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, and was to star in a 2016 sequel with Justin Lin to direct for Universal.

It is unclear what the Damon/Greengrass film means for the Renner project, but in September, Bourne producer Frank Marshall told THR that the project starring Renner was still alive.

“That movie is moving forward,” insists Marshall. “It’s still in development. We’re working to get a script as soon as possible.”
