At a recent junket Matt Damon told reporters he hadn't been consulted on The Bourne Legacy, under the helm of Tony Gilroy, and that "Universal just wants to call everything the Bourne something."

Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Matt Damon who attempted to clarify his comments about the upcoming production:

RELATED: Matt Damon: Jason Bourne Would Kick the S--t Out of Batman
I was in a roundtable and they were, like, badgering me about the next Bourne movie. And I was like, "I don't know, guys, they didn't call me. They're doing another movie with Tony." I think it's a smart thing to do. It doesn't interfere with Paul [Greengrass] and me doing a movie. As I understand it, if you think of X-Men and then Wolverine, it's just that process in reverse. Tony doesn't want to hurt the Bourne story. So as I understand it, Jason Bourne is alive in the world that Tony's going to create. I don't appear in it, but it's very much that world. As far as Paul and I are concerned, as long as there's room for us to come in and do another one, we're thrilled.

Matt Damon also offered a mini update on upcoming projects:

I'm doing a few weeks on Contagion with Steven Soderbergh, and then I'm doing Cameron Crowe's movie [We Bought a Zoo] in the spring. And then we're planning on doing Liberace in the summer with Michael Douglas. I've talked to Michael and everything's on schedule for him, which is great. So we've all cleared our schedules and are all really excited about that happening. And then the fall's wide open. So I'd love to do something with Paul Greengrass, whether we do Bourne or something else. I know he's been looking for something. So I don't know if he's going to generate his own piece of material or what. But my guess is if they're going to do this one, it's going to come out in 2012, so they're probably not going to hustle to get ours going. So I think we have a little time, which is always nice for us because we'd be able to come up with a script. Which would be great.
