Matt Damon says no to Bourne

Matt Damon is out from Bourne, but he will be back.

Tony Gilroy has just finished work on his script for the sequel to Bourne franchise. The sequel is called The Bourne Legacy. Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon will not be returning for this film. There will be no replacing of Matt Damon, but a new hero will emerge in this new version of the series.

So it looks like franchises reboot altogether. Gilroy says

“the easiest way to think of it is an expansion or a reveal,” Gilroy added. “Jason Bourne will not be in this film, but he is very much alive. What happened in the first three films is the trigger for what happens. I’m building a legend and an environment and a wider conspiracy… the world we are making enhances and advances and invites Jason Bourne’s return [down the road].”

“Everything you saw in the first three films actually happened, and everyone who got into will be rewarded for paying attention. We are going to show you the bigger picture, the bigger canvas. When you see what we are going and see what we are doing it will be pretty obvious.”

The script is going to be something that will matter in the proceedings for the future of the series.
