Jason Bourne To Return To The Franchise

BourneMove aside Jeremy Renner, according to Deadline, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are teaming up again to make a Jason Bourne movie. Universal Pictures is said to be so big on this idea that it's pushing Renner's Bourne Legacy spin-off out of the July 16th, 2016 slot for it.

This all comes as a bit of a surprise as Greengrass had said in the past that once Bourne had regained his memory there was no where else to go with the character creatively. Perhaps the director has realized you can still go with the character to the bank.

This doesn't end the Bourne Legacy as Universal plans to still move forward with it with Renner and director Justin Lin (Fast And The Furious), it will just be pushed back. Which could be a blessing since Lin is rumored to be directing a few episodes of the upcoming season of HBO's True Detective.
