The Bourne Legacy Won't Feature Matt Damon or Jason Bourne

The Bourne series will continue, but without its star Matt Damon, and without the main character Jason Bourne.

The Bourne Legacy‘s screenwriter Tony Gilroy has said that this film will be a new chapter to the series featuring a different hero. “This is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel. No one’s replacing Matt Damon… this is a stand-alone project,” he said.

While Jason Bourne will not be featured in the film, his presence will be there. Tony continued, ” [he] will not be in this film, but he’s very much alive. What happened in the first three films is the trigger for what happens… the world we’re making enhances and advances and invites Jason Bourne’s return [down the road].”

    This sucks. A Bourne movie without Bourne. What’s next, The Simpsons Movie Sequel without the Simpsons? Superman movie without Superman? Thank God they made 3 good movies ’cause in my opinion those are the only ones!

  • busted

    That sounds STUPID.. I for one will watch the first 3 and say NO to the next. Sick of them getting rid of the best thing about a story.

    Matt did a great job with those films.. All are really good. JUST like Tobey in Spider man.. another film I am not watching with that new guy.

    If Jason Bourne is not in the films then why even make them anymore..

    SUCKS>.

    This is one of the most stupid ideas I’ve ever seen Hollowwood have. They must be really desperate and the script really bad, if they have to try to trick their audience as much as that sounds.

    Fail

    I’m not sure I like this, the Bourne movies are synonomous with Matt Damon, you can’t make one without him.

    This is the death of this franchise.

  • commonsense

    Do you know how long I’ve been anticipating a new Bourne flick?! How dare they pull this shit with the fan!! Most of us are fans because Matt Damon IS Jason Bourne and I’m sure we would’ve been willing to wait to have him.

    They’re going to ruin it! Why does everything have to be about money in Hollywood?

  • Sherman

    @commonsense: I think we’ll all survive it.@tlc: Agree. What’s the big deal?

    One trend in beauty products lately is the use of products that include retinol. This agent has shown to be effective in eliminating or reducing facial lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and dark circles under the eyes. Retinol is a form of a naturally occurring substance we know as vitamin A. These products can be effective in delivering much needed nutrients to your skin to repair damaged cells. While there are many products available to do this, the RoC Retionol Correction Cream is worth taking a closer look at.

    Before deciding on the best anti aging Wrinkle Cream, it is important to think about the different types of reviews and how they should be weighed for accuracy and reliability. You would be quite reasonable to be a little dubious about a glowing review by the maker of the cream, or someone who sells it, for example.

    It’s no secret that most men want to be in peak physical fitness. The biggest indicator that you’ve made it to that level is not how you feel, but how you look. It might sound like a face value comment and it sort of is. However, sometimes focusing on getting ripped so that you will look great is often the best motivator.
