The next movie in the Bourne series, Jason Bourne, is set to be released next month on July 29th. As we’ve seen more and more often with the big releases, an Omaze contest to benefit charity has been set up that will see one fan win a trip to Vegas to hang out with Matt Damon.

To help get the word out about the contest, Damon played a prank in which he gives a super secret spy mission to some unsuspecting people who just received a phone from a mysterious stranger. Some of them get a freaked out by it and bail, while others cautiously proceed with the directions given.

Matt Damon as Jason Bourne

In an unlikely turn of events, it appears that Matt Damon will be reprising his role as Jason Bourne for the next installment in the Bourne Identity franchise, and director Paul Greengrass will be joining him.

Greengrass directed Damon in the second and third parts of the original Bourne trilogy, 2004’s The Bourne Supremacy and 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum (Doug Liman directed the original Bourne Identity in 2002). The duo departed the series after the trilogy was complete, opening the door for The Avengers star Jeremy Renner to step into the franchise as Aaron Cross in 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, which was directed by series writer Tony Gilroy.

The Bourne Legacy PosterThe Bourne Legacy
Directed by Tony Gilroy
Written by Tony Gilroy, Dan Gilroy
Starring Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Albert Finney
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 135 minutes

“There was never just one.”

In the wake of Jason Bourne’s dismantling of Operation Blackbriar, the CIA decides to dispose of their other black ops programs and terminate their remaining field agents.

Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), a genetically-enhanced agent from Operation Outcome, escapes his execution and, with the reluctant help of Outcome scientist Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz), sets out to expose the atrocities of his superiors.

Directed by Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton), The Bourne Legacy is the fourth installment in the Bourne series, based on Robert Ludlum‘s spy-thriller novels. Gilroy’s film, however, is based off a 2004 novel by Eric Van Lustbader. With permission from the estate of Robert Ludlum, Lustbader picked up the Bourne series where Ludlum left off with 1990’s The Bourne Ultimatum. Since 2004, Lustbader has written seven additional Bourne novels – which means Universal Pictures has plenty of material to mine for future sequels.

The Bourne Legacy‘s plot begins about two-thirds of the way through The Bourne Ultimatum, intercutting non-Jason Bourne scenes from Ultimatum throughout the film to communicate that these events are happening simultaneously. When we first meet Cross, he’s on a training mission in the wilds of Alaska. The first act of the film feels like The Grey meets Cliffhanger, with Renner’s character traversing treacherous terrain, super-jumping chasms, and fist-fighting wolves.

The Bourne Legacy

What do you get when you combine the action franchise spawned from the best-selling spy thrillers of the late Robert Ludlum that has become one of the most influential movie series of the past 25 years and the smokin’ funky grooves of late 1970’s disco?

Bourne To Be Alive, that’s what.

This video mashes up scenes from all three of the original Jason Bourne adventures – The Bourne Identity (2002), The Bourne Supremacy (2004), and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) – and scenes from the trailers for the forthcoming semi-sequel/franchise reboot The Bourne Legacy with the 1979 dance floor classic “Born to Be Alive” by Patrick Hernadez.

The Bourne Legacy

Universal Pictures has released a new poster and teaser trailer for their upcoming super-spy sequel The Bourne Legacy. You can check them both out here below.

The gritty, globe-trotting action franchise inspired by the novels of the late Robert Ludlum seemed to have wrapped up with 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, which was star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass’ farewell to the series that made them both household names in Hollywood. But never underestimate a studio’s willingness to exploit a viable cash cow for every penny its worth.

We’ve known for a while now that Matt Damon would not be returning for the fourth film in the Bourne series, titled The Bourne Legacy. We’ve also known that two–time Academy Award–nominee Jeremy Renner (The Town, The Hurt Locker) would be replacing Damon as a new character along the same lines as Jason Bourne, but not as Bourne himself.

Since then Rachel Weisz has been cast as the love interest, and now it’s being reported that Edward Norton is in talks to join the cast as well. Norton would be playing the film’s villain, but not much else is known about the character or his villainous ways.

You Won’t Find Jason Bourne Or Matt Damon In Tony Gilroy’s ‘The Bourne Legacy’
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

A few days ago we found out that Jason Bourne franchise writer Tony Gilroy would be pulling double-duty as both writer and director for the fourth installment in the series, The Bourne Legacy. The looming concern was whether star Matt Damon would be willing to return to his role despite the fact that second and third chapter director Paul Greengrass wasn’t involved.

The answer is apparently no.

After the initial reports of Gilroy’s involvement, the director wanted to make sure some unclear things became very clear, and one of those things was the Damon/Bourne factor. Gilroy explained in detail that this would be the movie we’ve heard about all along, using the Bourne title but at the same time being a completely original story, not adapted from Robert Ludlum‘s novel. Now we know that in this, a brand new hero will be used, not Jason Bourne, and that it will supposedly paint a much bigger picture to the world we’ve seen expand over the course of the first three movies.

Click on over to the other side to read Gilroy’s plan and explanation.
