Matt Damon: I’m coming back for Bourne 5

November 9th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well, we all thought it was coming but, as always, it’s nice to get the confirmation.

Speaking to E!, Damon was appearing with Batman himself, Ben affleck and Affleck dropped the little bomb that: “Well, [Damon’s] going to be doing a Bourne movie next fall when I’ve just completely lost any semblance of physical fitness.”

Damon piped up: “it’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. [Director] Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”

This confirms the speculation that the movie will take the place of the Jeremy renner Bourne sequel which was originally planned for July 15, 2016. So we’re guessing that is close to the release date (as we’ll get for a while) and the Renner sequel is on hold again.

But it’s good to have Damon back, not let’s just hope he and Greengrass can trap that lightening for a fourth time together.


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….
