Starting with 2002’s The Bourne Identity, the Jason Bourne film franchise not only provided a vibrant new cinematic spy saga, but redefined action filmmaking as we know it. And though he didn’t direct the first installment, director Paul Greengrass played a huge part in ushering in the style that would seep into mainstream action cinema by helming The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, and returning years later for the underwhelming Jason Bourne.
But it seems like Greengrass’s Bourne days are behind him once and for all. Read his comments about the future of the Bourne franchise below. Read More »

And what of Jeremy Renner‘s Aaron Cross — might Bourne Legacy finally get a sequel?

America sure has spent a lot of money trying to save Matt Damon over the years, but thankfully his next role, Jason Bourne, is a more self-reliant sort. He kind of has to be, considering our government (well, the CIA) has burned through a lot of money trying to kill him.
The as-yet-untitled fifth Bourne movie picks up 12 years after we last saw him in The Bourne Ultimatum, which was released in 2007 but set in 2004. (That puts Bourne 5 in 2016, if you’re trying to do the math in your head.) So what’s he been up to all this time? Damon drops a few more details, and serves up the first official Bourne 5 image to go with them. Read More »
