Bourne is back - and the proper one this time - with producer Frank Marshall posting the first photo from the set of the next instalment on Twitter.

Little is known of the plot, but the photo sees an in-shape but bedraggled Bourne binding tape around his hands, presumably in preparation for a fight.

The Bourne trilogy (Identity, Supremacy, Ultimatum) was a big hit in the early 2000s, before the franchise took a misstep when it introduced a different director and tried to make Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross the protagonist.

Damon and original writer/director Paul Greengrass are back for the fifth movie however, which is described as taking place in a “post-Snowden world”.

Julia Stiles will return as Nicky Parsons, with Vincent Cassel joining the cast as a villainous assassin tracking Bourne and Tommy Lee Jones playing a CIA superior officer.

Filming is expected to take place in Greece and Las Vegas (quite possibly on The Strip itself), with the movie - which doesn’t yet have a title - expected to open in cinemas on 29 July, 2016.
