The Jason Bourne franchise has always operated as a sort of response to the James Bond series. Right as Bond hit one of his lowest and silliest depths in Die Another Day in 2002, The Bourne Identity arrived on the scene as a sort of corrective; serious, dark, morally tortured. The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum followed, and so did 007, whose Casino Royale and especially Quantum of Solace aped the style and tone of Bourne.

Jason Bourne has always had one mission: to find out who he is. It’s a mystery that made him one of the most enthralling action movie characters. He didn’t have the suave, ostentatiousness of James Bond, nor did he rely on teamwork or gadgets like Ethan Hunt; he was quick, efficient and acted on intuition and impulse alone, and all without having a clue what his real name was. He was a human killing machine who wouldn’t stop until he uncovered the truth, and by the end of Paul Greengrass’ 2007 ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, Matt Damon’s spy finally got answers. But nearly 10 years later, Bourne still has questions.

Apparently they found one, along with a few good co-stars and…that’s all we know. Damon himself has a few updates about the upcoming sequel, including where the Bourne 5 picks up and what we can expect from some of the big action scenes.

It’s been eight years since Jason Bourne delivered his final ultimatum. That’s a long time between movie sequels. (What’s that? A Bourne movie that didn’t actually involve Jason Bourne? Nah, I’m pretty sure that never happened. Who would do such a thing?) And that long time is exactly why Bourne is finally coming back for a new movie starring Matt Damon (and not Jeremy Renner) and directed by Paul Greengrass.
