Universal Pictures has pushed its Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel back two weeks from July 15, 2016 to July 29, 2016. The release shift comes in response to 20th Century Fox moving Planet of the Apes 3 out of the July 29, 2016 date and into the summer of 2017. As of now, the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel is only going up against the 20th Century Fox comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
We reported back in September that Matt Damon is reuniting with The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass for a new Jason Bourne sequel. Nothing is known about the story at this point, and it isn't clear if there is even a screenwriter attached, but Matt Damon confirmed in November that the project will be released in 2016. The sequel must be moving along smoothly, though, for Universal to only push the sequel back two weeks.
Frank Marshall, Jeffrey Reiner and Gregory Goodman are producing the sequel alongside Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass. What remains unclear is how the Untitled Jeremy Renner Bourne Sequel fits in. That sequel was originally slated for release in 2016, but was eventually put on the back burner once Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass came back. Jeremy Renner played Treadstone operative Aaron Cross in 2012's The Bourne Legacy, but it isn't known when the Untitled Jeremy Renner Bourne Sequel may go into production.
