Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne.
The return of Jason Bourne has been rumoured for a number of years now. Of course, we did get a spinoff in the Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner. But we really wanted to see another Jason Bourne film with Matt Damon. It is only natural to want such things.
It feels good to see Matt Damon back as Jason Bourne. This series is often compared to the Bond films, but I really do believe they exist separately in their own right. The trailer looks stylish and has that bourne-ness about it.
Not only is Matt Damon back, but Paul Greengrass is too in the Director’s seat. Greengrass helmed The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, respectively. Matt Damon’s involvement was said to be heavily dependant on the return of Paul Greengrass as director. He also co-wrote this film by the way.
“Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.”

For Jason Bourne, Damon is joined by Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones, while Julia Stiles reprises her role in the series. Frank Marshall again produces alongside Jeffrey Weiner for Captivate Entertainment, and Greengrass, Damon, Gregory Goodman and Ben Smith also produce. Based on characters created by Robert Ludlum, the film is written by Greengrass and Christopher Rouse.
Casting Tommy Lee Jones could be a stroke of genius, I absolutely love that guy!
