Matt Damon Not In Next 'Bourne' Film, Says Producer

Matt Damon grabs lunch with some buddies at Tavern Restaurant in Brentwood, California on Thursday (June 19)

The 43-year-old actor won’t be returning as Jason Bourne in the next installment of the Bourne franchise, slated for a July 15, 2016 release.

“[Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) script/story that they pitched us a few months ago.” producer Frank Marshall told THR. “I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It’s a summer movie, and if we don’t start preproduction now, we can’t make next summer. Therefore, it’s a wise decision to move to 2016.”

    Not starting a film until the script is ready, how revolutionary. Is it just me that thinks Damon doesn’t look up to playing Bourne anymore?

    Damon looks all of his 43 years, but he could still play Bourne.
    Dye the hair, hit the gym – he could still do it.

    Yeah! If they speed up the film, shake the camera and film him in half light his fights will be totally convincing. Of course, after all this time Jason Bourne might have settled down and become a soccer dad – he would totally own that role.

    Matt Damon can still do anything he wants to do. He he a good actor, smart, and highly disciplined.
