With Jason Bourne topping the box office with an estimated domestic opening weekend of $60 million [read our reviews here and here], Matt Damon has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he’s open to another return to the spy franchise, assuming Paul Greengrass once again returns as director.
“Yeah, it’s definitely open,” states Damon, who has starred in four of the five Bourne movies to date, having skipped 2012’s The Bourne Legacy. “I’m tied to Paul, whatever he wants to do.”
“We’re friends, so it would always come up in conversation,” Damon added with regards to how Jason Bourne came about. “We didn’t want to dive into one unless we could make a movie that fit in that family and felt worthy. It’s kind of deceptively tricky, and so I think we were just leery of making it look like a job that was taken on cynically by any of us. To have made three of them that we loved, it just felt like we should live well enough alone unless we could make a good one.”
Jason Bourne is out now and reunites Matt Damon with Paul Greengrass, director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. Julia Stiles is also back alongside new additions Alicia Vikander (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), Vincent Cassel (Trance), Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln), Ato Essandoh (Django Unchained), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler) and Scott Shepherd (Bridge of Spies).
