Matt Damon “open” to more Bourne films

Does the star of the Bourne Identity, Supremacy and Ultimatum have his sights set on another movie?

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.
