Is Damon set to return to the Bourne movies alongside Renner?

Again, it’s a slow news day, so don’t get too excited about this… yet

Bourne Legacy director/co-writer Tony Gilroy, producer Frank Marshall and star Jeremy Renner have been chatting to Empire about the upcoming fourth installment of the Bourne saga, em without Bourne, and they talked a little about the mythology of the movies.
Gilroy said: “If you think of the first three Bourne films as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, then we’re showing you Elsinore. You thought you were seeing something you weren’t. What if there’s a much larger story? What if Treadstone wasn’t the only black-ops programme?”
Renner describes his character as: “coming from a completely different background to Jason (Bourne). He knows exactly who he is; he signed up to this… He’s a person who wants to be part of something… to have a sense of purpose. But then it’s taken away.”
However, the internet is going a bit batty over Marshall’s comment: “All possibilities are open. My dream is that in the next one we see Matt and Jeremy team up.”

Now, we think this is possibly just a flippant statement, but then again are there such things in Hollywood? Has Damon decided he likes what he sees and wants back? Hard to say, just file it under ‘wait and see’…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
