Back in September, principal photography got under way on Universal Pictures' long-awaited Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, a.k.a. Bourne 5, with producer Frank Marshall sharing the first photo of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. Production is still under way, with new photos arriving from the Kreuzberg, Germany set, thanks to We Got This Covered and several other sources. While all of these photos feature Matt Damon in action, one of them reveals his face has been bloodied quite badly, despite the smile on his face.
We last saw Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum, which wrapped up a trilogy of adaptations based on Robert Ludlum's spy novels. After that adaptation hit theaters, Matt Damon said that he wouldn't come back for another follow-up unless director Paul Greengrass came back, and they had a story they both wanted to work on. Matt Damon revealed this fall that the script, »

After schooling bad guys in the deft art of close-quarters combat on the rooftops, today’s brand new batch of set photos for Bourne 5 see Matt Damon take to the streets, presumably on the hunt of a possible lead.
Hopping from Spain to London and now to Germany, Damon’s grizzled Jason Bourne returns to the fray, reuniting with director Paul Greengrass following the pair’s work across both The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. Set to arrive almost a decade after the release of Ultimatum, early reports tease that Greengrass’ soft reboot will be situated in a post-Snowden world, exploring some of the pressing themes of information control, democracy and cyber-security in the year 2015.
As for today’s new set photos, Coming Soon confirms that filming is taking place in Kreuzberg, Germany, with action veteran Vinzenz Kiefer lending a hand as a stunt double. »

At the start of this year, I was intrigued by what looked like a fairly spy-heavy line-up for this year's theatrical releases, and now that we're at the other end of the year, it seems like a good time to look back and see how the year actually played out versus how we thought things might go. One thing that's clear is that there were a ton of spy movies in 2015. If Sony hadn't pushed back the release of "The Brothers Grimsby," it would have been one more, and it makes it obvious why they pushed that film back to next year when you look at just how many spy-themed movies have been released since January. It's an unusual number, and I think it's just one of those flukes of timing. But when you look at all of them stacked up next to one another, it's interesting to see what worked and what didn't, »

Production rumbles on today on the set of Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass’ long-awaited action sequel Bourne 5, and Coming Soon has spotted the pair atop a London rooftop capturing an intense sequence.
This isn’t the first batch of set photos to surface from Universal’s yet-to-be-titled follow-up, with fans getting a glimpse of a muscular Damon back in September when the film set up shop in Tenerife, Spain. Hopping from one European location to the next, today’s slew of images will be familiar territory for ardent supporters of the series, and we imagine that both Greengrass and Damon have a few tricks up their sleeves after collaborating across The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum.
Primed to release almost a decade after the actor’s last foray as the title agent, Universal has understandably kept story specific under wraps at such an early stage. »

Riz Ahmed, star of Four Lions and the Jake Gyllenhaal-led thriller Nightcrawler, is teetering on the edge of stardom. In 2016, he’ll join Gareth Edwards for a trip to a galaxy far, far away for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first installment in Disney’s high-profile Anthology series set adjacent to the core trilogy. It’s a remarkable coup for the actor and next year is certainly going to catapult him into the limelight now that Variety has confirmed that Ahmed will join the burgeoning cast of Paul Greengrass’ Bourne 5.
Starring opposite The Man From U.N.C.L.E.‘s Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassell, Julia Stiles and of course, Matt Damon, Ahmed has landed a “key role” in the starry action sequel, assuming the part of a CIA specialist. What remains unclear, however, is whether he will help or hinder Jason Bourne’s globe-trotting adventure when it arrives in theaters next year. »

The Wrap is reporting that Sony Pictures is planning a reboot for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” Millennium series with “Ex Machina” actress Alicia Vikander an early favorite to take on the role of hacker Lisbeth Salander. Vikanders film credits include “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”, “The Danish Girl”, “Burnt”, and next year’s “Bourne 5” with actor Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass.
Sony will adapt the fourth novel, “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”, rather than the intended second novel, “The Girl in the Who Played With Fire”, written by late author Stieg Larsson. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Steven Knight is in negotiations to write the script to the adaptation.
Sony released the first film, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” in 2011, but the film had difficulty matching its inflated $90 million budget and flopped during its holiday release. Oscar-nominated actress Rooney Mara previously played the lead character opposite Daniel Craig »

Variety is reporting that "Nightcrawler" actor Riz Ahmed has joined the untitled "Bourne 5" film which is currently filming with director Paul Greengrass ("Captain Phillips") and actor Matt Damon ("The Martian") reprising his role as spy Jason Bourne. Variety points out that Ahmed will play a CIA tech specialist who plays a key role in the film.
Ahmed was the top choice for the role, but scheduling conflicts with Disney and Lucasfilm's "Star Wars: Rogue One" prevented him from signing on earlier for the role. Ahmed joins a cast that includes Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Scott Shepherd, Tommy Lee Jones, and Julia Stiles.
Matt Damon starred in three "Bourne" films which included "The Bourne Identity" (2002), "The Bourne Supremacy" (2004), and "The Bourne Ultimatum" (2007), which grossed a total of $1 billion at the worldwide box-office. Actor Jeremy Renner ("American Hustle") starred in the spin-off, "The Bourne Legacy", in 2012 with writer-director Tony Gilroy, who co-wrote all three "Bourne" films. »

In case the endlessly busy 25-year-old prodigy Xavier Dolan didn’t already make you feel lazy, he’s already moved on to the casting of his next film after finishing production on next year’s star studded melodrama, It’s Only the End of the World. According to Screen Daily, Dolan is preparing to move forward with his first English language film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, with the equally prolific Jessica Chastain, and Kit Harrington, who’s making continued inroads into film after his memorably brooding turn on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates have also been confirmed for the film, set to shoot in spring 2016, which reportedly delves into themes of identity and fame in showbiz, and focuses on a young actor reminiscing on a past pen pal relationship with his American TV idol. Describing the film, Dolan said, “It is »

Whenever tragedy strikes, dramatizations as such in the media aren't far behind —though it's taken a few years, the 2008 terror attacks on The Taj Hotel are getting retold on the big screen. Nicolas Saada unveiled his take on the story with “Taj Mahal” featuring "Nymphomaniac" star Stacy Martin this year on the festival circuit, but it didn't get a great reception (read our review). So "Macbeth" and "The Snowtown Murders" director Justin Kurzel may fare better when he takes on the same subject matter.

It’s always rather delightful to see someone really break in the industry in a big way. This year, the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards are taking notice of Alicia Vikander’s tremendous 2015 and bestowing upon her the Hollywood Breakout Actress Award. She’s impressed in both The Danish Girl and Ex Machina, with the former likely to score here a Best Supporting Actress nomination. As such, this is a great honor for her, likely just the first of many to come. Even if Oscar somehow doesn’t end up citing her as well, this has Vikander on the radar for years to come. The Hollywood Film Awards are unquestionably right to honor her here in this regard. She’s earned it, and then some… Here’s part of the press release once again announcing this honor: dick clark productions announced today that the Swedish actress Alicia Vikander will receive the “Hollywood Breakout Actress Award, »
