After the rather run-of-the-mill but ultimately dull THE BOURNE LEGACY, Universal Pictures managed to persuade co-writer/director Paul Greengrass and superstar actor Matt Damon to return to the franchise following their work on the awesome THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM.
We’re still awaiting an official title for BOURNE 5, but Damon, who’ll be credited as co-writer on this upcoming instalment, has confirmed that these new events will take place 12 years after their last adventure.
In a new interview, THE MARTIAN star has dropped a few more key details about what’s in store for his amnesiac assassin originally created by author Robert Ludlum:
“We find him in a dark and tortured place. There’s been the financial collapse, the great recession, all these issues of cyberwarfare and civil liberties.”
Co-starring Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones, BOURNE 5 is slated for cinemas July 29, 2016.
