Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass To Return For New 'Bourne' Movie

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass will reunite for another 'Bourne' film.

Universal has almost completed a deal that will see the pair to return and take the place of the release date reserved for 'The Bourne Legacy' sequel, starring Jeremy Renner.

The studio still plans to make another film starring Renner but that will be bumped to be released after a Damon-led film.

Following 'The Bourne Ultimatum', Greengrass and Damon had said they didn't see where the character of Jason Bourne could go creatively. But that has apparently been figured out as Universal hopes to further expand the franchise's universe and eventually cross over Damon and Renner's characters and storylines.

Greengrass will not only direct but write the script for the film. The Bourne trilogy was officially written by Tony Gilroy but he was blasted by Damon for mailing it in.

"It's really the studio's fault for putting themselves in that position," Damon said at the time. "I don't blame Tony for taking a boatload of money and handing in what he handed in."

"It's just that it was unreadable. This is a career-ender. I mean, I could put this thing up on eBay and it would be game over for that dude. It's terrible. It's really embarrassing. He was having a go, basically, and he took his money and left."

Damon has always said that the only way he would return for another 'Bourne' film was if Greengrass was attached to it. And now, that has happened.
