We still don’t know what the title of the next Bourne movie is going to be (The Bourne Enemy has been widely rumoured), but we do now have a first look at Matt Damon as the titular spy in Paul Greengrass’ upcoming film.
Little is known about the plot, though the actor has at least shed some light on where things pick up for the spy when he returns to action on a quest for answers about his past:
“There’s been the financial collapse, the great recession, all these issues of cyber warfare and civil liberties. We find him in a dark and tortured place.”
That certainly sounds pretty intriguing, and with Greengrass back at the helm, you can be sure that we’ll be in for a wild ride. Whether the film can live up to the first three is still up in the air, but given the talent assembled here (supporting cast includes Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones and Vincent Cassel), we’re going to remain optimistic.
The currently untitled movie is set to be released on July 29th, 2016, the date which was originally held by the Jeremy Renner led Bourne Legacy follow-up. However, after the tepid response to that movie, it’s hardly a surprise that Universal decided to prioritize this collaboration from veteran Bourne director Paul Greengrass and the returning Damon.
Tell us, are you looking forward to a fifth outing featuring the titular spy? Sound off below and let us know what you want to see from this instalment.
