Jason Bourne Could Be Re-Bourne In New Movie Series From The Original Series' Producer

The Bourne franchise, which consists of four films starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, amnesiac special agent, could return–but Damon will not be playing the character again. A reboot of the franchise is being planned, and it’ll be separate from both those films and the 2012 spin-off The Bourne Legacy, which starred Jeremy Renner.

In an interview with Collider, producer Frank Marshall has discussed plans to bring Bourne back to the big screen with a new creative team. “I do like the Bourne series, and I do think that’s an opportunity for different filmmakers to come in now,” he said. “So, I’m hoping that we can find a new story for Bourne and a new filmmaker. We are looking.”

While this doesn’t necessarily mean that a new Bourne film will definitely happen, planning is, at least, underway.

The last movie in the previous Bourne franchise, simply titled Jason Bourne, released in 2016, and there were no plans for more. A spin-off TV series, Treadstone, was announced in 2018; it eventually launched to little fanfare, and was cancelled after one season. Combined, the five Bourne films have earned over $1.6 billion worldwide at the box office.

Elsewhere in the interview, Marshall discusses plans in motion for Indiana Jones 5, which will be handled by Logan director James Mangold.
