Matt Damon drops some hints on the fourth Bourne movie
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
At first glance, you’d think this quote from Matt Damon on the prospects of a fourth Bourne film are kind of out of nowhere. We had never heard the idea of a prequel before, but given that Paul Greengrass dropped out and Matt Damon doesn’t seem interested, it makes sense that Universal would try, once again, to update one of their franchises by doing a prequel. On a quick red-carpet interview, Empire Magazine asked Damon about the next Bourne movie:
“There’ll probably be a prequel of some kind with another actor and another director before we do another one,” he said, “just because I think we’re probably another five years away from doing it – we’ve got to get a script…”
So what does that mean? Well, I think he’s right in saying that a fourth Bourne movie that involves Mr. Damon is five or more years away from happening. I don’t know about a prequel, though. I don’t think I’d be able to shake the feeling that they’re trying to sell tickets based off the Bourne name.
