Bourne’s Back… Kind Of
When the makers of the Bourne franchise revealed they would be returning to the premise to make another movie, we thought the news was too good to be true. But just like every brilliant deal, there was some small print..
It turns out that neither Jason Bourne, nor Maaaatttt Daaaammmoon will be returning for the fourth instalment. The movie will instead be based around a new agent and played by a new actor. Sorry for any confusion, but the headline: ‘Makers Of Bourne Films Invent New Character Who Is Quite Similar To Bourne For New Movie’ was scoffed out of the sub-editing dept. As it turns out, this film (which seems to have less and less in common with the orignals as we go on) will be directed by new director Tony Gilroy who revealed the new film, titled The Bourne Legacy will be a completely original screenplay. “It is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel,” he explained.
“No one’s replacing Matt Damon. There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter, this is a stand alone project. The easiest way to think of it is an expansion or a reveal. Jason Bourne will not be in this film but he’s very much alive.”
