As we reported back in September, Universal has been planning a new 'Bourne' film with Paul Greengrass returning to the director's chair and Matt Damon returning to the role of Jason Bourne. The thing is, we hadn't heard anything official from Damon himself ... until now. The actor finally broke his silence in a recent interview to confirm his return to the 'Bourne' franchise.

Well that didn't last long, did it? With the conclusion of the original 'Bourne' trilogy, director Paul Greengrass said there wasn't really anywhere else for Jason Bourne to go in the franchise, hence the Jeremy Renner spinoff 'The Bourne Legacy.' But it looks like Greengrass and star Matt Damon have come up with an idea to put Jason Bourne back into action.

'The Stand' is one of Stephen King's best novels and it has the potential to be a truly incredible film. Warner Bros. seems very aware of this face since they keep on attaching their best and brightest filmmakers to the project ... but everyone keeps dropping out. David Yates was the first to go, followed by Ben Affleck and Scott Cooper, but the studio is supposedly eyeing a new and very interesting choice: Paul Greengrass.

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.

Tom Hanks has two big starring roles this fall, one in 'Captain Phillips' another in 'Saving Mr. Banks.' He once won Best Actor Oscars in consecutive years, perhaps this year he'll be nominated twice. Here's the latest trailer for 'Phillips,' which shows more of the scope of the film.

'The Trial of the Chicago 7' was one hot project in 2008, with Aaron Sorkin writing, Steven Spielberg directing, and Will Smith and Sacha Baron Cohen rumored to star as Bobby Seale and Abbie Hoffman, respectively. The project has been dormant for a while, but 'The Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass might be the person to bring it back to life.

It's been a few years since we last saw a film from Paul Greengrass, but the new 'Captain Phillips' trailer shows that the director of 'The Bourne Ultimatum' hasn't lost his style at all. In fact, the movie looks terrific. That's what you get when you put Greengrass at the helm of a terrifying/exciting true story and cast Tom Hanks in the lead role.

Although he's best known for directing 'The Bourne Supremacy' and 'The Bourne Ultimatum,' Paul Greengrass' best films are undoubtedly 'Bloody Sunday' and 'United 93,' both of which take touchy and potentially controversial subject matter and craft humane, heartbreaking stories out of them. His talent for finding humanity in history makes his long-gestating 'Memphis' an exciting prospect -- it's hard to imagine another filmmaker more suited to exploring the final weeks of Martin Luther King Jr.'s life. After all kinds of delays, Deadline is reporting that 'Memphis' is just about ready to go and will be the filmmaker's next project.
