The wait is over – Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne.
Early Thursday morning/late Wednesday evening, Universal Pictures released the first trailer for Jason Bourne, the fifth entry in the Bourne film franchise and the fourth featuring Matt Damon.
The movie takes place several years after his disappearance at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum. Jason Bourne has been hiding for years but something happens to draw him from the shadows.
Julia Stiles will reprise her role as Nicky Parsons. Stiles, along with Damon, are the only cast members from previous Bourne movies to return. Alicia Vikander (Ex-Machina, The Danish Girl), Vincent Cassel (Ocean’s Thirteen), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler), Ato Essandoh (Elementary), Scott Shepherd (Bridge of Spies) and Tommy Lee Jones (The Fuigitive) will also star.
Jeremy Renner’s character Aaron Cross, introduced in 2012’s The Borune Legacy, will not be featured. However, Universal still plans on making another film involving Renner.
Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum) returns to direct the new movie. Greengrass also wrote the script along with Bourne editor Christopher Rouse.
Jason Bourne is set to release July 29, 2016.
