Matt Damon says he is still “open” to the possibility of reprising his role as kick-ass super-spy Jason Bourne if the circumstances are right.
After making three films in the successful Hollywood franchise, Damon and director Paul Greengrass appeared to rule out a return to the series, which continued without them after 2007 instalment The Bourne Ultimatum.
But now the Oscar-winning actor has revealed that he would love to see what happened to the character next.
“I’ve always been open to [another Bourne film] if Paul Greengrass is the director,” Damon told US news show CNBC – adding that the main obstacle to producing any further films was the lack of a satisfying plot.
“We’ve just never been able to come up with a story,” said Damon, “so if any of your viewers have a story, please call Universal and submit it.”
Based on the character created by author Robert Ludlum, the Bourne films continued with 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner as the genetically-enhanced Aaron Cross. A sequel, which Renner will also be involved in, is expected to be released in the summer of 2015.
