Paul Greengrass Laughs Off Rumors About A Return To The BOURNE Franchise
While Universal themselves denied reports that director Paul Greengrass would be reteaming with star Matt Damon for another Bourne movie, the filmmaker has now gone on record to call the rumors "just a figment of someone’s imagination". Read on for details!
"I’ve absolutely no idea," Paul Greengrass told Empire when they asked him why exactly these rumours about a return to the Bourne franchise keep coming up. Last year saw Universal decide to continue the series with a new lead character played by Jeremy Renner (Bourne without Bourne if you will). It was understandable then that fans were excited to think that the real deal would be making a return, but that simply is not the case according to Greengrass. "I’m not being funny but, no, that’s just a figment of someone’s imagination." As for when he last talked to Matt Damon about making another instalment of Bourne, he added: "Quite a while ago. We might have a laugh about it, but a serious conversation? Not for a long time." So, it looks like we're stuck with Aaron Cross for the foreseeable then. Whether or not the director would be open to returning to helm a future chapter of the franchise is unclear, but it certainly doesn't sound as if it's something he's desperate for. "Um... listen, I loved the Bourne movies. I loved making them but it’s like anything in life, you’ve got to move on and do different things."
