Matt Damon told Empire that with the recent departure of director Paul Greengrass from Bourne IV and a script still not complete, he’s unsure he’ll be part of the next film and makes the assumption that Universal will instead move forward with a prequel with a new cast:
“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…”
That would suck. The Bourne films make up a great trilogy and I was rather looking forward to another go with Damon as Jason Bourne. Add to that I’m not too excited about the possibility of rebooting a franchise that launched just eight years ago (2002).
