Matt Damon Not Returning For The Bourne Legacy

Hollywood Elsewhere talked to the new director/writer Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton,Duplicity) about his upcoming film The Bourne Legacy.

He told them that they took the title from a book in the series and they will not use the story.

"This is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel. No one's replacing Matt Damon. There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter...this is a stand-alone project," said Gilroy.

He went into greater depth of the subject and continued with "Jason Bourne will not be in this film, but he's very much alive. What happened in the first three films is the trigger for what happens. I'm building a legend and an environment and a wider conspiracy... the world we're making enhances and advances and invites Jason Bourne's return [down the road]."

So we could end up seeing Jason Bourne in later Bourne films.

No release date set yet
