Will Matt Damon Make His Own Bourne Movie?

Despite not being asked back for Universal’s next Jason Bourne movie, star Matt Damon has suggested that he and director Paul Greengrass could legally make their own Bourne movie.

The duo, who teamed up to give us the Bourne Trilogy would, according to Matt Damon, be well within their rights to make their own movie based on the famous spy novels as Universal don’t own the exclusive rights to Jason Bourne’s adventures. Judging from his interview with Empire, it seems that Matt Damon is pretty annoyed that no one has informed him on an official level about Universal’s intentions to make a new Bourne movie without him and Paul Greengrass…

“No one told me, literally nobody called me. People think I have inside information, but you can get a sense of where I am in the pecking order. I’d do it again with Paul [Greengrass]. Universal doesn’t actually own the Bourne character – the estate does – so technically I could go to Warner Bros… and Universal could read about it online.”
