The next sequel in the Bourne franchise won't hit theaters until 2016. The fifth installment was originally set to be released on August 14, 2015.
Justin Lin (Fast Five) is set to direct the sequel, with Jeremy Renner returning as Aaron Cross. Though Matt Damon mentioned that he was open to returning to the franchise, chances are he won't be reprising his signature role. The actor said he would consider reprising his role if director Paul Greengrass returned–he's not.
“I've always been open to it if Paul Greengrass is the director. We've just never been able to come up with a story. So if any of your viewers have a story, please call Universal and submit it. It felt like such a good way to end it the last time... But having said that, I love that character and I'd love to see what happened to him.”

Universal Pictures has pushed back the next untitled “Bourne” pic from Aug. 14, 2015 to July 15, 2016.
Since the studio only recently set Andrew Baldwin to pen the script to the next and a production date had not been set for the film, it makes sense that Universal pushed the release to give more time to finish the script.
The last installment, “The Bourne Legacy,” grossed more than $275 million worldwide.
In it’s place, Uni has date the N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” for Aug. 14, 2015 announcing that newcomers O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell will play group members Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-e in F. Gary Gray film.

In a landmark move, Universal Pictures have signed award-winning Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou (The Flowers Of War) to direct their planned film adaptation of Robert Ludlum’s The Parsifal Mosaic. According to Deadline, this collaboration will mark the first time a mainland Chinese director has signed on for an English-language film for a Us film studio.
Zhang Yimou – a director, producer, actor, writer and former cinematographer – is no stranger to the concept of blazing a trail. In 1990, his film Ju Dou became the first Chinese movie to be nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award. More recently, he directed both the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games.
The Parsifal Mosaic has been in development at Universal for some time. Quickly becoming a bestseller for author Robert Ludlum after it was published in 1982, it tells the story of Robert Havelock – a Us State Department Intelligence »

Exclusive: What’s a Robert Ludlum thriller without an unexpected plot twist? How about Universal Pictures setting Zhang Yimou to direct The Parsifal Mosaic, the Ludlum bestseller that Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are producing with Captivate’s Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith? I’m told this is the first time that a mainland Chinese director has signed to do an English-language film with a film studio in the U.S. That was the goal when, in May 2012, CAA signed the filmmaker whose film Ju Dou became the first Chinese feature to be nominated for an Oscar, and who also directed the dazzling Opening Ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It is not clear yet whether this will be his first Hollywood film or not because he has other irons in the fire. Zhang’s films include the BAFTA-winning Raise The Red Lantern, Hero, House Of Flying Daggers »
