First Look: Matt Damon Back as Jason Bourne on Set of New Movie
Bourne is back!! The real Jason Bourne, not that "I need my chems!" guy. Even though the trilogy wrapped up nicely with The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, Matt Damon is back again and has started filming the new Bourne movie due out next summer. Producer Frank Marshall posted a photo on Twitter from the set, showing Damon in shape and looking like he's ready to kick some ass again. While there still is no official title for this new film, Marshall included the hashtag "#Bourne2016". The plot is being kept under wraps, but it's good to see him back. Hopefully this will turn out good as Paul Greengrass is directing. Take a look!

Late last year, we got the surprising news that Universal had actually rounded up director Paul Greengrass and his The Bourne Ultimatum and The Bourne Supremacy star Matt Damon to return to the Jason Bourne franchise after previous attempts to get a fourth film with Robert Ludlum's character fell apart years ago. In between the original Bourne trilogy, they made The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner, but it didn't gain enough goodwill to earn a sequel. The only details known so far about this new Bourne movie are that it will reflect our "financially risky times" and is set in a post-Edward Snowden world. The film is currently set for release on July 29th, 2016 next summer. We'll keep watching for updates as filming continues. Cool?
