Jason Bourne is Back.
Matt Damon is coming back in the action thriller Jason Bourne — which will serve as his comeback playing the franchise star. The acclaimed actor last played the role of super spy in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum.
“It’s the kind of action sequence you can only see in a Bourne movie,” says returning director Paul Greengrass. “It marries action with a really intense, emotionally truthful next chapter in the Jason Bourne story.”
Jason Bourne is scheduled to hit theaters on July 29, 2016.
Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.
For Jason Bourne, Damon is joined by Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones, while Julia Stiles reprises her role in the series. Frank Marshall again produces alongside Jeffrey Weiner for Captivate Entertainment, and Greengrass, Damon, Gregory Goodman and Ben Smith also produce. Based on characters created by Robert Ludlum, the film is written by Greengrass and Christopher Rouse.
