Jason Bourne: Universal planning many further sequels

Universal wants Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to make more Jason Bourne films. Lots more Jason Bourne films...

Arriving in cinemas at the end of next week is the fifth film in the Bourne movie series, but crucially, the fourth to see Matt Damon play Jason Bourne. He returns to the series – along with director Paul Greengrass – after neither was involved in the underwhelming The Bourne Legacy. It would be fair to say that Universal has very high hopes for the reunion.

So much so, that plans are afoot for many further sequels. Universal chair Donna Langley was chatting to The New York Times about the future of the series, and she said that “here’s what I think the goal is: to keep Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass doing Bourne movies till they can’t do them anymore”.

She said this in the context of being asked about luring the pair back to the series (and perhaps just a little tongue in cheek), and it should be noted that neither Greengrass nor Damon has committed to a further Jason Bourne adventure. However, this time, neither of them has ruled it out this time.

It does appear that there are no plans for a The Bourne Legacy 2, following Jeremy Renner’s character, at least not for now. Universal had originally planned a further movie for him, but it’s not pursuing spin-offs just yet.

Jason Bourne slips into cinemas on July 29th.
