As we reported back in September, Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass were in negotiations to return to the franchise after their exit in 2007, now comes confirmation from the actor himself.
Speaking with E! News caught up with the actor and Ben Affleck and they gave an update on where the project stands:
“Well, [Damon’s] going to be doing a Bourne movie next fall when I’ve just completely lost any semblance of physical fitness. So…,” Affleck said.
Damon added that “it’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. [Director] Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”
The new film will be released July 15, 2016
