No More Bourne for Matt Damon Without Paul Greengrass
Posted 12.05.09 by BrentJS
Only a few days ago, it was announced that Paul Greengrass, director of the second and third movies in the Bourne series, would not be returning to direct a fourth. It was unknown at that time how this would affect plans for another movie, but it now appears that Greengrass' permanent departure could mean the end of the Bourne franchise altogether.
In a recent interview with MTV, series star Matt Damon said, "I woldn't do it with anyone else." However, Damon was optimistic that Greengrass would return if they could find the right story.
I think it's gonna happen some day. We just got to get a script and we don't have one. So, embarking on something, you know, and aiming at a release date without any story would just be too risky. And, we don't wanna risk ... you know, we really love it! We love the character and we love the three films ... there's no reason to mess with it unless we have really a good one to follow it up with it.
