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.

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.
