Bourne 5 about to begin filming as Matt Damon reveals some juicy details

August 31st, 2015 by Jonathan Snelling Comments


When last we saw Jason Bourne in The Bourne Ultimatum, he had disappeared into the night, and it was unknown whether he would return. After a very long wait, eight years to be exact, Jason Bourne is finally set to return to our screens.

Speaking with Buzzfeed, Matt Damon explained why we have had to wait so long: “We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change.”

Eight years is a very long time to wait, and in that time there have been wars, austerity, the killing of Bin Laden, and the toppling of nations, some key world elections and the fallout of Snowden among many. So what will we expect to see in this new Bourne world?

Damon gave us a little hint as to what we can expect: “Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world… It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy.”

Damon also confirmed that production will start this week in Greece.

Bourne 5 is set for release on 29th July 2016. Just under a year away seems like a very short time period to produce a movie. I just hope it’s not going to be rushed because of it.

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
