Matt Damon Will Not Star in Fourth “Bourne” Film

Matt Damon is ditching the successful “Bourne” series, and will not star in the series’ fourth film. Damon, who played government agent Jason Bourne in the last three movies, admitted that the franchise’s future remains uncertain but expects that the next film will be a prequel to the original 2002 “Bourne Identity” movie.

He said:

“I don’t know you know. I think it will be a prequel of some kind with another actor and another director before we do another one.
I think we are probably five years away from another one. We gotta get a script. If you have any ideas please call Universal.”

Previously, Damon had said that he hoped to start work on a new Bourne movie in 2011. Later, however, he admitted that he wasn’t sure if he’d sign up again after director Paul Greengrass’ departure.

Damon, 39, would now rather spend his time focusing on directing, but only if the right project comes along.

“I want a simple little human story. Something like Good Will Hunting or something that’s smaller like that. Nothing too tricky the first time.

I don’t know if I’ll be in it. I’d prefer not to be. I’ve heard from other people and Ben told me it’s tough, it’s a lot of hard work.”

New Bourne Movie

Universal is moving ahead with its fourth installment of “The Bourne Identity” franchise, setting George Nolfi to write the script. Nolfi was co-writer of the third film, which was based on a story by Tony Gilroy.

Though the series is based on the Robert Ludlum novels, the new film won’t be based on a Ludlum title, but rather an original story.

Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon are attached to the new film.

Another new movie?

It is reported in the US that Clint Eastwood and Matt Damon are considering working on the Morgan Freeman-starring Nelson Mandela biopic ‘The Human Factor’.

Variety reports that the film is an adaptation of the John Carlin Book ‘The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changed the World’.

The story takes place during the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa when Mandela was in his first term as President and tells of how he used the event to break down racial barriers.

Matt fights out

Damon punches out

Matt Damon‘s out, and Brad Pitt‘s in. That’s the latest on Darren Aronofsky‘s highly anticipated pugilist pic “The Fighter.” Apparently because of a scheduling conflict, Damon has bowed out of the big-budget boxing flick, in which he was to play trainer Dick Ecklund to Mark Wahlberg‘s “Irish” Micky Ward. Based on the brothers’ true story, the film will chronicle the duo’s rough-and-tumble early days in Lowell. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Scott Silver, whose credits include the gritty “8 Mile” and “The Mod Squad,” is rewriting the script.

Variety offers guide to Matt’s life

Speaking of Damon, Variety’s Peter Bart cautions the Cambridge-bred actor not to take himself too seriously. The trade’s editor in chief writes in this week’s issue that the “Bourne” star risks becoming boring if he continues to avoid the spotlight so assiduously. “Does it represent a response to the Owen Wilson-Lindsay Lohan school of self-destructiveness? . . . Living in denial seems mildly pathological, Matt.” In conclusion, Bart recommends Damon consider living more like, say, George Clooney. “Brando is so not today’s role model, either in terms of behavior or heft.”

Bourne again in ten years.

In an interview Matt Damon said:

“I would be shocked if there was another movie,” he says. “I know the studio wants to do it. The only reason that I can’t promise is if Paul Greengrass came to me in 10 years and said, ‘Listen, I have a way to do a fourth movie that speaks to the world we’re in today’. Then I’d go, ‘OK, this doesn’t corrupt the trilogy’.”

Quite old Bourne it’d be.

Just a lil’ memo from me: The Bourne movies are book adapaions. There is one book left, The Bourne Legacy.

If you are anyway interested in reading the whole long interview, it is here.

Damon: I was lucky to land Bourne role

Hollywood star Matt Damon insists he was lucky to land the lead role in ‘The Bourne Identity’ after starring in two critically-panned movies.

The actor claims ‘All The Pretty Horses’ and ‘The Legend of Bagger Vance’ were his worst ever career moves, but was grateful they were released after he was chosen for his role as Jason Bourne in 2002 movie ‘The Bourne Identity’.
