A new Jason Bourne movie is in the early stages of development with All Quiet on the Western Front director in negotiations to helm.
What evil government plot did Jason Bourne suddenly remember this time? Deadline reports that Universal Pictures is in early development of a new Jason Bourne movie, with All Quiet on the Western Front director Edward Berger in negotiations to helm the project.
As development on the new Jason Bourne movie is still in its infancy, there’s no script at this time and no other talent attached beyond Edward Berger. As for Matt Damon, who starred as Bourne in four of the five movies, he will be approached once a script is in place, but there’s no guarantee he would consider returning to the action franchise.
The last movie in the series, Jason Bourne, was a box-office success upon its release in 2016, grossing $412 million worldwide, but it received lackluster reviews from audiences and critics. Matt Damon acknowledged the collective ‘meh’ from audiences, but wasn’t about to rule out another sequel. “This last one didn’t do as well as the one we did 10 years ago, so maybe people are done with the character,” Damon said. “I think everybody is leaving the door open, as we did at the end of this movie, in hopes that we can come up with an intriguing story for the next one.“
