Matt Damon May Return as Jason Bourne in ‘The Bourne Legacy’ Sequel

Matt Damon May Return as Jason Bourne in ‘The Bourne Legacy’ Sequel

Earlier this week, Universal Pictures announced that its sequel to 2012's action-thriller The Bourne Legacy has been shifted from a August 14, 2015 release to July 15, 2016, reportedly to make room for the studio's biopic Straight Outta Compton which took the August 14, 2015 slot. An unconfirmed report from Latino-Review claims the real reason for the delay is that Matt Damon has finally agreed to reprise his role as Jason Bourne.

It isn't clear how director Justin Lin managed to convince Matt Damon to come back, especially since the actor has repeatedly stated in the past that he will only return to the franchise if The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is back at the helm. The actor did reveal last month that he is open to returning, if he and Paul Greengrass can find a story they like, even suggesting that fans submit their own stories to Universal Pictures.

‘The Bourne Legacy’ and ‘Identity Thief’ Sequels Moving Forward at Universal

‘The Bourne Legacy’ and ‘Identity Thief’ Sequels Moving Forward at Universal

Universal Chairman Adam Fogelson helped push the studio to its highest-grossing year worldwide in 2012, with hits like Ted, Dr. Seuss' the Lorax and Les Miserables pulling in millions of dollars at the box office. But the studio currently lacks a franchise, and is the only studio amongst the heavyweights to not yet have a billion-dollar grossing movie amongst its back catalogue of hits.

Fogelson hopes to change that in the near future, as he plans to move forward on a number of sequels to recent audience favorites. He gave an update on potential franchise starters The Bourne Legacy and Snow White and the Huntsman, and even announced that a sequel to their most recent hit, the comedy Identity Thief with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, is on its way. If its not a direct sequel, the two comedic talents will work together again in some capacity. The Chairman also says that an adapation of the hit Broadway musical Wicked is not that far off, even despite Oz: The Great and Powerful's current stealing of that particular spotlight.
