Q&A Asked about The Bourne Legacy

May. 31, 2012
Why is Matt Damon not in the movie and could he return as the Jason Bourne character in future films?
Jun. 4, 2012 After The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass decided not to helm the fourth installment of the Bourne franchise (citing the need for a 'different challenge'), Matt Damon declined to participate in the project. Matt Damon has not ruled out starring in any future films as long as Paul Greengrass returns as director. As Matt Damon stated, "I’ll just wait for him and when [Greengrass] wants to do one, we'll do it."
