We haven’t heard anything on Bourne 4 since Paul Greengrass decided against returning to direct. Matt Damon made it known that he wouldn’t be back without Greengrass, so that either meant Universal could somehow woo Damon into returning, or they could do that thing studios do when they want to keep the rights but can’t carry on with the original cast/director. Reboot!
“There’ll probably be a prequel of some kind with another actor and another director before we do another one,” he said, “just because I think we’re probably another five years away from doing it – we’ve got to get a script…”
That’s what Matt Damon told Empire recently at the Invictus premiere. So I guess Bourne 4 is dead. Even if Universal reboot it’s unlikely they’ll bring Damon back to make Bourne 4 when they’ve just set up a whole new set of films.
Would you have prefered a Boune 4? Or is a reboot the way to go?
