According to Deadline, Matt Damon is going to return to the role of Jason Bourne!
Supposedly Universal Pictures is making a deal with Damon as well as director Paul Greengrass to reunite for their third film together in The Bourne Identity series. No ones reps would comment on the story.
According to Deadline’s sources, the new Bourne film with Matt Damon would go into production as the next Bourne film in the series. Universal already had plans to release an untitled Bourne film on July 16, 2016, which was thought to be a sequel to “The Bourne Legacy”” starring Jeremy Renner and to be directed by Justin Lin.
The Renner spinoff sequel would be pushed back, and Damon’s return to the series would take precedence (of course) The Renner series would remain in the pockets of Universal to be used at a later time. Universal sees having both Damon and Renner as the best of two worlds for continuing to build the Bourne franchise.
