Matt Damon Not in THE BOURNE LEGACY
Last week THE BOURNE LEGACY confirmed Tony Gilroy (co-writer of the three previous Bourne films) as its director. This sparked some hope for fans that Matt Damon would be returning to the fourth installment as Jason Bourne, but it doesn’t look like this is the case.
Gilroy stated: “This is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel. No one’s replacing Matt Damon. There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter… this is a stand-alone project.”
Apparently there’s going to be a new hero to follow in the Bourne series! But don’t rule out Damon’s return just yet. Gilroy continues: “Jason Bourne will not be in this film, but he’s very much alive. What happened in the first three films is the trigger for what happens.”
So hang in there Bourne fans! Jason may eventually be back.
