Matt Damon Admits Up for Being Bourne Again

by at .  Updated at . Comments

So we know that Jeremy Renner will return for a Bourne Legacy sequel. And we’ve all heard those rumors that one day Matt Damon will return to the role and we'll perhaps even have both Renner and Damon in the same movie.

Matt Damon is Jason Bourne

Today, we have word from Damon himself that even though he feels that uttering those The Bourne Ultimatum quotes was a great way to close out the character, coming back to the Bourne world is always a possibility.

"It felt like such a good way to end it the last time. But having said that, I love that character… and I’d love to see what happened to him," Damon said to CNBC.

The key is Damon’s director for those first few Bourne films, Paul Greengrass. The superstar doesn’t want to play the superspy again without the man who made the first few film versions in which the Robert Ludlum fictional character became a movie icon.

So, who knows if Damon will return? I mean, there is no reason to think that Greengrass could not come back to the franchise he started. But then again... in Hollywood, you never know.

Why not head back to the beginning and see how it all started for Greengrass and Damon and watch The Bourne Identity online

Bourne Quotes

[voiceover] This is not a drill, soldier. We clear on that? This is a live project. You're a go. Training is over. Training is over.


Jason Bourne: Who has a safety deposit box full of... money and six passports and a gun? Who has a bank account number in their hip? I come in here, and the first thing I'm doing is I'm catching the sightlines and looking for an exit.
Marie: I see the exit sign, too, I'm not worried. I mean, you were shot. People do all kinds of weird and amazing stuff when they are scared.
