Yesterday, we reported the exciting news that Universal Pictures is in talks with star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to return for a new Jason Bourne movie, seven years after their initial trilogy came to a close in 2007 with The Bourne Ultimatum. That report revealed the studio is also still moving forward with the Untitled Sequel to 2012's The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, but the project is still in development.
It's unclear at this time if Paul Greengrass will write the script for the Jason Bourne adventure, since 20th Century Fox is still trying to decide whether or not to give the green light for his new project The Ballad of Richard Jewell, which has Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio attached to star. There is speculation that Paul Greengrass' camp may be using the Bourne movie to force the studio's hand into greenlighting The Ballad of Richard Jewell, or at the very least, have them come to a decision sooner. Paul Greengrass and longtime editor Christopher Rouse have settled on a concept that would bring Matt Damon back as Jason Bourne, but no story details were given.Read More

Frank Marshall has signed on to direct the shipwreck drama The Longest Night for Paramount Pictures, marking his first directorial project since Eight Below.
The project was set up through Conde Nast Entertainment, a company which launched specifically to develop stories from their magazines for movie and TV adaptations. This story is based on a December 2008 GQ article by Sean Flynn, which chronicles the true story of an Alaskan trawler, which sank in 6,000-foot deep waters on Easter Sunday in 2008. The ship went down 180 miles off the Alaskan coast, carrying 47 crew members, 42 of which were rescued by the Coast Guard, despite facing nearly insurmountable obstacles like 15-foot swells.Read More
