Matt Damon Dishes On The Next Bourne Film

While many have tried to get Matt Damon to discuss details about the new Bourne Identity film, all have failed. Until now. Entertainment Weekly nabbed an exclusive interview with the film’s star and he had this to say:

“There’s been the financial collapse, the great recession, all these issues of cyber warfare and civil liberties,” star and producer Damon tells EW for this week’s First Look issue.”

The tumultuous present serves as a backdrop for this story, in which Bourne resumes his quest to find answers about his past.

“We find him in a dark and tortured place,” Damon explains

Damon is returning to his Jason Bourne roots once again to work with director Paul Greengrass (neither was involved in the 2012 spinoff, The Bourne Legacy, involving Jeremy Renner). Damon has revealed previously that this film will take place twelve years after Bourne’s disappearance in The Bourne Ultimatum.
