Yes it’s true, Matt Damon will reprise his role as Jason Bourne and we couldn’t be more excited.
E! caught the actor with his good friend Ben Affleck celebrating season four of their project, Project Greenlight. It was Affleck who spilt the beans but Damon was quick to confirm.
Damon said that he was waiting for English director Paul Greengrass, who directed two of the original films as well as Captain Phillips and Green Zone, to agree to it before he himself did the same. E! reported him saying:
“It’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. [Director] Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”
The last film in the franchise was released in 2012 and starred Jeremy Renner as agent Alex Cross, yet it’s success didn’t match that of the original trilogy.
