Frank Marshall, the producer of the hit Bourne films, has suggested that the franchise is not yet over.
In an interview with Collider, Marshall said: I do like the Bourne series, and I do think that’s an opportunity for different filmmakers to come in now.
“I’m hoping that we can find a new story for Bourne and a new filmmaker. We are looking.”
The Bourne films centre, mostly, on Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), an amnesiac assassin who starts rediscovering his own shady past.
The second two films in the franchise – The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum – were both directed by acclaimed action filmmaker Paul Greengrass, who then returned for the series’ fifth entry, Jason Bourne.
While Marshall’s comments suggest that Greengrass would not be coming back, they leave the door open for Damon to reprise the role of Jason Bourne.
2012’s The Bourne Legacy was set in the same universe as the first three films, but did not star Damon. Instead it focused on a new character played by Jeremy Renner.
