Universal Says No Truth to Matt Damon, Paul Greenglass Re-Teaming for New ‘Bourne’ Film

A report had the two in negotiations to return

While the idea sounds appealing, it seems like fans will not be getting another Jason Bourne film starring Matt Damon anytime soon as Universal has said there is no truth to the rumor Damon and director Paul Greengrass are in negotiations to return for another ‘Bourne’ feature.

Twitchfilm reported that the studio was in talks with both men to return for a new installment in the franchise but sources with the studio are denying the story saying there is nothing going on between the studio and Damon and Greengrass.

Universal recently hired Anthony Peckham to pen the next installment in the franchise that stars Jeremy Renner.

Rumors of Damon and Greengrass returning to the franchise have been circulating going all the way the back to before “The Bourne Legacy” was even released, and the idea isn’t completely outlandish of having two separate films given the success of both pics and the opportunity for a cross-over.
