Briefly: Just last night, 20th Century Fox pushed back their release of the sequel to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes from July 29th, 2016 all the way back to the next summer on July 14th, 2017. And now Universal Pictures is taking advantage of the schedule shift, and they've moved their release of the Untitled Next Bourne Chapter, which brings back Matt Damon as Jason Bourne and Paul Greengrass as director, from July 15th 2016 to two weeks later on July 29th, 2016. The only other film in that slot is a yet to be cast Fox comedy called Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates, so Bourne is in the clear. In addition, Damon and Greengrass will write the script with editor Christopher Rouse, with no trace of Tony Gilroy now.
