After Matt Damon's Jason Bourne franchise ended in 2007 with The Bourne Ultimatum, the actor had always insisted that he would only return as the former spy if The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass was back at the helm. During a new interview with CNBC, the actor reiterated that he has always been open to returning if Paul Greengrass was on board, but they have never been able to find the right story.
"I've always been open to it if Paul Greengrass is the director. We've just never been able to come up with a story, so if any of you viewers have a story, please call Universal and submit it. It felt like such a good way to end it last time. Having said that, I love that character. I'd love to see what happened to him."
Back in August, we reported that Universal Pictures was in early negotiations with both Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass for a new movie, which is reportedly being developed separately from a sequel to 2012's The Bourne Legacy, which starred Jeremy Renner as a different operative named Aaron Cross. It's possible that both the original Bourne franchise and this Aaron Cross version may cross over, but that has not been confirmed.
