Matt Damon In Talks To Return To Bourne Franchise



Last we heard about Matt Damon possibly returning to the popular Bourne franchise was that the actor would only consider it if the director on Supremacy and Ultimatum, Paul Greengrass, would be brought back, as well as the new movie featuring a quality storyline.

That now appears to be the case as TwitchFilm reports that Universal Pictures is in talks with Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass.

No other details are mentioned, and it's not stated how the return of Damon and Greengrass would affect Jeremy Renner; if at all.

Update: Universal Pictures says there is no truth to the rumor about Damon and Greengrass (via Variety).

A couple weeks ago it was also reported that Universal hired a screenwriter to pen the fifth Bourne installment which would star Renner as Aaron Cross.

Last year's The Bourne Legacy with Renner brought in over $275 million.

As it stands, all four of the Bourne films have raked in over a billion for Universal.
