Matt Damon will make a new Jason Bourne film, set for 2016

There will be another film starring Jason Bourne in 2016, and Matt Damon himself will be returning for the role. Not only did Damon confirm that he is returning to the titular character, Paul Greengrass will also return to direct the next installment.

The news came from Damon himself, he was on-hand with BFF Ben Affleck and disclosed the information with E! late Friday night. “It’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out,” he told E!. “Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”

If you are a fan of the Bourne franchise then you probably already know that Greengrass directed the second and third films in the series. Those were The Bourne Supremacy (released in 2004) and The Bourne Ultimatum (released in 2007).

More information on a release window and other cast-members will be released at a later date.
