Yesterday, we were briefly excited by the rumor that Matt Damon had entered negotiations with Universal to reprise his most famous character, Jason Bourne. This was quickly shot down by sources at the studio, and we all sighed with displeasure. Another 'Bourne' film is moving forward with Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross character, but our question for you is: Do you want to see another 'Bourne' movie if Matt Damon isn't in it?

Matt Damon in Negotiations to Return to 'Bourne' Franchise

Just as recently as earlier this year, Matt Damon was talking that a return to the 'Bourne' franchise that turned him into an A-list action star was highly unlikely. But, this is Hollywood and sometimes what is completely unlikely one day (like Ben Affleck as Batman), becomes a reality the next. And so, Matt Damon is in negotiations to return for another 'Bourne' film along with 'Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass.

Let's not beat around the bush: 'The Monuments Men' looks terrific and we'll be completely and totally shocked if it's not one of the year's most talked-about films come Oscar time. Then again, we'd expect nothing less than a historical dramatic comedy directed by George Clooney starring the likes of Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Jean Dujardin and Cate Blanchett. The first official poster has arrived, making it pretty clear that this insanely good cast will be the major selling point going forward.

POLL: Why Didn't More People Head to 'Elysium'?

This summer has been filled with question marks. We've seen a surprising number of films underperform, even when they looked for all the world like winners on paper. The latest is 'Elysium,' an ambitious, original sci-fi action film, starring bankable actor Matt Damon and directed by 'District 9' maestro Neill Blomkamp. It just debuted to a so-so $30 million, surprising since it appeared that it would provide the boost the summer box office has needed lately. So this begs the question: Why didn't 'Elysium' fare better?

Neill Blomkamp's latest sci-fi action effort, 'Elysium,' hits theaters this weekend. In the film, Matt Damon plays Max, a man living on a future, third-world version of Earth while the wealthy enjoy a utopian life on a luxury space station known as Elysium. When given only a few days to live, Max must become a reluctant hero to save himself -- and possibly the rest of humanity.
Damon leads a cast that includes Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, and William Fichtner, so we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane to see the cast of 'Elysium' way back when.

Another 'Bourne' Sequel in the Works; Jeremy Renner to Return

Although 'The Bourne Legacy' didn't live up to the critical and financial precedent set by the first three films in Universal's 'Bourne' series, the studio appears to be moving forward with a fifth film in the series. Although it's still early in the process, early buzz suggests that film will once again center around Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross, with Matt Damon's titular amnesiac spy off doing whatever movie spies do when audiences aren't watching them.

'Elysium' Review

Here's one of my favorite jokes of all time. There's no punchline, it's just a sentence. "I've been rich and miserable, and I've been poor and miserable. And I'll tell ya: rich is better."
I don't know if this is what director Neill Blomkamp had in mind as the ultimate message of 'Elysium,' his visually stunning follow-up to 'District 9,' but beneath the dazzling spectacle, there isn't much else beyond that aphorism to cling to.
