Jeremy Renner & Matt Damon's 'Bourne' Franchises Won't Meet
Ever since it was revealed that Matt Damon was returning to the Jason Bourne franchise with director Paul Greengrass behind the camera again, fans were already hoping that there would be some kind of cross over with The Bourne Legacy franchise that Jeremy Renner stepped into in 2012. However, if producer Frank Marshall is to be believed, that may not happen at all. Though Marshall once said that Damon and Renner may be able to team up sometime down the road, a conversation with Collider indicated a complete 180 on that prospect happening as the producer says, "We don’t have plans for that." Read on!
Of course, Marshall doesn't close the door entirely as he continues, "You never know. I never say never. But that’s not the plan. They’re on separate tracks." In a way that makes sense, but since both Aaron Cross and Jason Bourne have turned on the secret organizations that spawned them and their set of special skills, it would be a waste to not have them team up, or even face-off, on the big screen. Perhaps Universal just wants to continue their individual franchises first and then see where they can go from there. The next Jason Bourne film is slated to arrive on July 29th, 2016 and The Bourne Legacy sequel is on the backburner.
