Matt Damon has confirmed that there will be a fourth Jason Bourne movie.
Damon, along with director Paul Greengrass are currently developing the script, although notably the movie will not be based on a Robert Ludlum novel. Universal owns the complete rights to the Bourne character for use on screen.
“We’re working on it. This time it would be from an original script rather than a book by Robert Ludlum, but the director Paul Greengrass is busy and I am too, so we’ll see what happens” said Damon.
Damon though noted that they don’t get any easier with age: “when I did the first movie, I was 29 years old. I am 37 now, and after a tough fighting scene, the next day you wake up and feel your body more. That’s just the way it is.”
The three previous Jason Bourne movies grossed nearly $1 billion, with the third in the series taking $400 million.
