With Jeremy Renner and Justin Lin taking over the reins of the Bourne franchise, it would appear that Matt Damon’s part is over. This might be true, but if all of the pieces fall into place, he could be back.
In a recent interview with CNBC, Damon announced that he still has a desire to play Jason Bourne. Here are some parts of his interview from the video below:
"I've always been open to it if Paul Greengrass is the director. We've just never been able to come up with a story..."
Just because they can’t come up with a story doesn’t mean that we can’t come up with one.
“So if any of your viewers have a story, please call Universal and submit it.”
He also says:
"I love that character and I'd love to see what happened to him."
While Damon is all on board for another Jason Bourne film, it doesn’t look like Greengrass is. He had this to say about the continuation of the franchise:
“Listen, I loved the Bourne movies. I loved making them but it's like anything in life, you've got to move on and do different things.”
While I really like Renner as Aaron Cross, nothing beats the original. Even though there is no guarantee that there will be another Jason Bourne movie, it is nice to know that there is still a chance.
