Matt Damon as Jason Bourne

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!

Matt Damon as Bourne

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?

Guy is a troll

NewsGuest on Sep 9, 2015


Although my comment was general in nature, it was mainly aimed at you... I was just being polite.

Tester on Sep 9, 2015


Mainly as opposed to exclusively. So you don't disagree that Sascha Dikiciyan is a troll. Glad we can agree on that.

NewsGuest on Sep 9, 2015


Yes mainly.. but not exclusively since you are not the only one ( see my initial comment "we"). I never said anything about being a troll, only that we should all stop name calling..

Tester on Sep 9, 2015


Just letting you know I'm about to block you. "Baco Taco", "FreeJared", "Grow1950", "Higgens", whatever you want to call yourself. We can easily track your comments, your name changes, and see that you are often the biggest troll, leaving very offensive comments that disrupt our community. Thanks for playing.

Looks great! I will be curious if they will try and make an excuse for the time gap in between films.

DAVIDPD on Sep 8, 2015


Good luck with that 😉

That's a pretty sad and disrespectful reply to the man who runs this site. Have you no self-respect or dignity?

The real Jason Bourne, not that "I need my chems!" guy. That's pretty funny, Alex. Probably because I wholeheartedly agree with you. If I were to have written that I think the fanboys here would have attempted to hang me out to, sorry you have to put up with and deal with some of the hostile posts on your site. Good luck, man, I'm with you in

Just one more Matt, just one more... til the next one. Maybe it could round it off nicely with him in a hammock with James Bond at the end. Will be good if it is finally finished and a line drawn under that chapter.

Nice. Good to see Matt back as Bourne. I am also curious to see where this goes. I liked the 3 that Ludlum wrote. Not a big fan of the rest. There are too many now to count. Van Lustbader is good but it just didn't feel the same. Looking forward to this movie though. The first 3 really changed the game up with the whole spy genre films.

TK on Sep 9, 2015


Well well well, I'm excited!

Xerxexx on Sep 10, 2015


I don't remember any of these movies.

capitandelespacio on Sep 11, 2015


Looks to be in much better shape than in Ultimatum. Good for you, Matt!
