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.
Bourne films are a series of American action thriller films based on the character Jason Bourne, a CIA assassin suffering from dissociative amnesia who must figure out who he is, created by author Robert Ludlum. 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. Dortunately is personal trainer will help him with a routine to get back in shape. Portraying a fictional character is not an easy task. Hollywood’s biggest action movie stars have to put in a lot of work to get a look of a fearsome hero, or villain. Affleck will be using CBD as per his coach indications, CBD oil reduces blood pressure, so you can extend your workout without the typical stress and fatigue. And because CBD stays in the body for several hours, it can also help stave off the soreness you might feel later. Like many athletes, Laferrara uses CBD throughout the day to sustain the balancing benefits.
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
