Matt Damon as Jason Bourne

After it was announced that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass would return for the fifth installment of the Bourne film franchise, some speculated that there would be some sort of crossover with Jeremy Renner‘s Aaron Cross. At the time, Justin Lin was attached to direct; however, the lack of progress forced the film to be pushed back to a later date. Despite that, there was still hope that there would be such a crossover.

But during the promotional rounds at the TCAs, producer Frank Marshall confirmed that there were “no plans” for such an event.

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.

Movie Review: Captain Phillips PosterCaptain Phillips
Director: Paul Greengrass
Screenwriter: Billy Ray
Cast: Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Barkhad Abdi
Columbia Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 134 Minutes
Release Date: October 11, 2013

Directed by Paul Greengrass (United 93) and written by Billy Ray (The Hunger Games), Captain Phillips is based on the book, A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty.

The film is an examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. The story focuses on the tense relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), and Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse (Barkhad Abdi), his Somali counterpart.

Few directors have the ability to evoke a harrowing, real-life event like Greengrass – if you’ve seen United 93, you know exactly how affecting his films can be. Captain Phillips is an expertly crafted, documentary-style film with impressive performances from Hanks and Barkhad Abdi, who makes his film debut here. Hanks delivers some of his best work in years, playing the Hanksian Everyman – an ordinary guy who, despite insurmountable odds, survives and becomes a hero.

Captain Phillips

The first trailer for Paul Greengrass‘s Captain Phillips only focused on the moment Captain Phillips (Tom Hanks) and his ship, the Maersk Alabama, was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. It was a great teaser at best, and now the full trailer shows us that this film will be much more than your average hijacking/hostage film, there are larger issues at stake for all characters in play. When all of this is backed by intense themes, and a powerful score, it makes for a great time at the movies. Hit the jump to see the second trailer for Captain Phillips.

Sony Pictures, in conjunction with 20th Century Fox, will release Captain Phillips into theaters on October 11.

‘Captain Phillips’ Trailer: Paul Greengrass Takes True-Life Hostage Crisis To Dangerous Waters

Captain Phillips

A large part of what makes films based on true-life stories so appealing to a wide audience is the fact that it relies so much on the drama. It’s what keeps the audiences glued to their seat, because even though they probably already know what is going to happen because they’ve read about it, they want to experience it first hand by watching it. So imagine what happens when they watch Paul Greengrass‘ latest directorial effort Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks in the titular role.

You can watch the trailer for the film here below.

For those who might not remember, Captain Richard Phillips was captaining the Maersk Alabama, a cargo ship, when it was attacked by Somali pirates. He offered himself as a hostage in order to save his crew members from further harm. This act of heroism made its way into national headlines as the world held its breath to see what would happen to the captain. The rest is pretty much history, but it does have all the ingredients for a intense drama.

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.

Jason Bourne Finds New Director In Tony Gilroy; May Be Called ‘The Bourne Legacy’

The Movie God   |  @   |

Last December it was reported that director Paul Greengrass would be walking away from the fourth installment in The Bourne Identity franchise. Greengrass captained the second and third movies (Doug Liman directed the original), and was popular with star Matt Damon, who at one time said he wouldn’t come back if the director wasn’t involved.

Despite the exit of Greengrass, Universal has maintained plans for another installment in the series — now tentatively titled The Bourne Legacy — and now they’ve found the director they want to deliver it. And who better then the man who has personally written the screenplays for all three previous films, Tony Gilroy. The writer was hired a while back to pen the script, which was an obvious choice of course, and it only makes sense to have him embrace the role of director as well.
