Producer Frank Marshall has revealed a new film in the Jason Bourne franchise, which features Matt Damon as the titular spy, could be in the works at Universal Pictures.
While offering an update on the long-in-development Indiana Jones 5, Marshall opened up about the Bourne franchise, which fizzled out after 2016’s Jason Bourne. The producer explained to Collider that he’s hoping to find a new story for a new filmmaker to take on in the franchise.
“I do like the Bourne series, and I do think that’s an opportunity for different filmmakers to come in now. So, I’m hoping that we can find a new story for Bourne and a new filmmaker. We are looking.”
Matt Damon starred as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum before Jeremy Renner was positioned as a new lead for the franchise in the 2012 spinoff The Bourne Legacy. However, the film failed to expand the franchise thanks to negative reviews and poor performance at the domestic box office. Damon returned for the fifth film in the franchise in 2016 but Jason Bourne ultimately failed to reinvigorate the franchise despite an impressive opening weekend.
