In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

About six weeks ago, "Avengers" star Jeremy Renner joined social media. And he has been an absolute joy ever since. Never more so than when he shared this photo from the set of "Age of Ultron." During a slow moment, Renner donned the mask worn by Scarlett Johansson's stunt double… Wow. Such beauty. If you secretly — or not so secretly — ship "Clintasha" this might be the closest you'll ever get to beholding their daughter. But what the actual hell is happening? According to Beth, the mask was created to help special effects artists in post-production paint Johansson's facial expressions on top of her stunt double's body, since being pregnant threw off how much physical stunt work she could do. Of course, Renner has been goofing off on set for weeks. Case in point: whatever is going on here. Bless. [Via Jeremy Renner] »

A bombshell was dropped a couple of days ago when news broke that Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are currently in discussions to return to the Bourne franchise, with Greengrass also penning the screenplay. The prospect of the duo responsible for the brilliant The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum coming back to the series was an exciting one, but it raised a lot of questions about Universal’s other Bourne franchise. When Damon and Greengrass departed the Bourne series, Universal kept the property alive with The Bourne Legacy, which saw Jeremy Renner playing another agent living and working in the same universe as Bourne. The film did so-so at the box office, but Universal was happy enough that it began developing a sequel with director Justin Lin to hit theaters in 2016. When we learned that Greengrass and Damon were talking about returning to the Bourne series, we heard »

Politics, politics, politics. It’s the name of the game in Hollywood. Earlier this summer, producer Frank Marshall insisted Matt Damon wasn't returning to the ‘Bourne’ series (because he had to) and now, he’s essentially admitting to it because the cards are all on the table. Yes, Matt Damon is coming back to play Jason Bourne, but it’s complicated (as THR says, “Let's hope Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner don't bump into each other at a restaurant.”). "We're on two tracks," Marshall told the trade about the two ‘Bourne’ currently movies in the works. "And if this one [with Damon and Paul Greengrass] comes together, great, but they're still just talking." Indeed, it seems as if the Damon/Greengrass iteration is still in the early stages and it could get more difficult. THR runs down a lot of the complex factors involved. Greengrass could be directing a movie with Leonardo »

A version of this story first appeared in the Sept. 26 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Let's hope Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner don't bump into each other at a restaurant. In re-engaging with Universal to return to the Jason Bourne franchise with director Paul Greengrass after their contentious exit following 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum, Damon has put in jeopardy a planned follow-up to 2012's The Bourne Legacy that is set to star Renner and be directed by Justin Lin for a 2016 release. Several sources say that if deals and a story idea can be worked out with Damon, 43,

Damon and director Paul Greengrass are making deals with Universal to team up for a new Bourne film.
As the old saying goes, you can't keep a good government assassin down. Jason Bourne – and not Jeremy Renner's semi-confusing Jason Bourne analog – is coming back as Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are currently making a deal with Universal to reunite for a third time, according to Deadline.
This will be the fourth time Damon has stepped into the shoes of the titular trained killer, first playing him in 2002 in The Bourne Identity. Identity was directed by Doug Liman who handed the series' reigns over to Greengrass in 2004 for The Bourne Supremacy.
It was Greengrass who gave the franchise its iconic handheld 'shaky cam' look, which he used to acclaimed effect in the 2007 installment The Bourne Ultimatum, which was the last film Damon appeared in as the eponymous hero.

Bourne: Matt Damon is returning to the Bourne series under the direction of Paul Greengrass. The two previously worked together on 2004's The Bourne Supremacy and 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum (pictured above), as well as 2010's non-Bourne action drama Green Zone. Reportedly, the new project is targeting July 26, 2016 for release, which would delay the next planned Boune offshoot starring Jeremy Renner, which will be directed by Justin Lin. [Deadline] I Know What You Did Last Summer: It's been 17 years since Kevin Williamson (Scream) adapted Lois Duncan's thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer for the big screen, and so Sony has decided the time is right for a reboot.

Yesterday, Marvel Studios and Disney Pictures finally dropped a new press release, revealing the new, official synopsis/spoilers for their upcoming "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" super hero/action flick, and it sounds like things will get quite interesting and intense as Tony Starks aka Ironman runs into some major problems. All the Avengers team gets put to their most challenging test ever, and more! The official press release reads like this: "Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to »
Have you ever wondered what Hawkeye and Black Widow.s baby would look like? Of course you have. Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson are two preposterously good-looking people who sizzled with chemistry throughout Joss Whedon.s 2012 blockbuster, The Avengers. Well, here's your answer: Check out that ungodly image that Jeremy Renner recently uploaded to his Twitter account. When Renner unleashed the nauseating picture on his 81,000 followers, he did so alongside the caption: "Hawkeye and Widow? Widow and Hawkeye??? Hmmm. #iftheyhadababy #widow #hawkeye." There is just something unsettling and innately gross about seeing Renner as Clint Barton wearing what appears to be a mask of Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow face. However, if you.re able to take your eyes away from the truly terrifying, yet oddly hypnotic, coagulation of two beautiful Avengers, then you.ll also realize that it gives us a pretty good look at Hawkeye.s attire for »
Marvel and Disney have made available the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron and it doesn't give much away to someone like me that doesn't know anything about the comics, but I have to assume comic book readers can see between the lines. As much as I'm not all that interested in another film in which "the fate of the planet hangs in the balance", I have high hopes for this one. I think Joss Whedon is working with the best this "cinematic universe" has to offer, which is he gets to play with all the characters, which cleans up the issue of "Where is so-and-soc" right off the bat, though with the addition of so many new characters it will be interesting to see how he balances their screen time and how well we'll get to know them all.

Rumors are swirling that Matt Damon is coming back for another Bourne movie with director Paul Greengrass, despite the fact that Greengrass has previously said there was nowhere else for the character to go. This film would also be separate from the spinoff sequel The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner. Universal Pictures hasn't officially confirmed the news yet, but if it's so, we say bring it on - because Matt Damon is one of the big screen's best heroes. Oh, you need proof? Here's proof. »

Let’s take a journey back in time. The year? 2010. Hot off The Hurt Locker (and reasonably hot off The Town), Jeremy Renner looked poised to break out in a big way. He was going to be Hawkeye. He was going to be the new Jason Bourne. He was going to take over the Mission: Impossible franchise. It was going to be Jeremy Renner’s world, and we were all just going to live in it (and buy lots of movie tickets while living in it). It was going to be great. It didn’t happen. The literal promise of Renner’s breakout did come true – he is Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he took over the Jason Bourne franchise, he was introduced as a new character in the last Mission: Impossible film – but he’s still not the star of any of those franchises. And, based on the latest round of Hollywood news, he »

Via Deadline, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass will team up again to make a third Jason Bourne movie following concluding the trilogy with The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007. Universal has set the film for a quick production and a release on July 16, 2016. Not only that, this would place the as-of-yet untitled Bourne movie ahead of the Bourne spinoff sequel to The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner and directed by Justin Lin (Fast & Furious).
Deadline mentions that Greengrass had originally planned on stopping the franchise now that Bourne has his memory back, saying there’s nowhere else for the character to go. But this latest update of course flies in the face of news that Greengrass would never make another Bourne movie, that Damon would never make one without Greengrass, and that Damon was anyway attached without Greengrass involved.
This will also be the first Damon/Bourne movie not based on one of Robert Ludlum’s novels, »

Back in June, Universal Pictures set a 2016 release date for a sequel to The Bourne Legacy, essentially cementing their plan to continue the Bourne franchise with Jeremy Renner as the new leading man. Now, however, it looks like Matt Damon is going to be coming back for another Bourne adventure, bumping the Legacy sequel out of it's release date, and seeing him re-team with director Paul Greengrass.
If you were hoping to see Matt Damon come back to the action franchise, then it looks like you're in luck. Months ago Latino-Review posted a scoop that the real reason the Legacy sequel had been delayed to 2016 was in order to secure new deals for Damon and Greengrass to return to the franchise. The reports were immediately denied and a few news sites went out of their way to try and debunk it. One of the most vehement debunkers, Deadline, have now »

Apparently Universal is putting the planned sequel to The Bourne Legacy, which saw Jeremy Renner step in for Matt Damon in an attempt to keep the franchise alive, on the backburner as the studio has begun negotiations with Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Matt Damon to return for what would be Damon's fourth film in the franchise and Greengrass' third. The report comes from Deadline, which says Universal intends to make the reteam the next Bourne, stepping in front of the spinoff sequel, which was previously assumed to be occupying a July 16, 2016 release date. It sounds as if that date will now go to this Greengrass and Damon sequel while a new Renner film, with Justin Lin directing, is still assumed to be in the works. There's no word on how the story will play out, but I would expect there to be some sort of »

Sequels for superhero movies are a dime a dozen in Hollywood of late. But perhaps the one follow-up on the current movie calendar that has the most expectation resting upon its broad and burly shoulders is Avengers: Age of Ultron. After all, its predecessor has stormed past $1.5 billion since release to become the third highest-grossing film of all time, and is adorned by Marvel fans worldwide. No pressure, then, Mr. Whedon.
With the anticipated sequel pegged for May of next year, only those who attended this year’s San Diego Comic-Con had the chance to see some early footage. For the rest of us, though, Marvel has released a plot synopsis that reveals just the right amount of information without delving into untimely spoilers.
