Vincent Cassel will play a prominent villain in the next Jason Bourne movie, in which Matt Damon returns as the amnesiac spy-on-the-run, reports Variety.

Cassel, 48, makes a rare foray into Hollywood big-budget fare as an assassin tracking Bourne. The new, as-yet-untitled film will see Damon reunite with regular series director Paul Greengrass, who also co-writes the screenplay with Christopher Rouse after taking time out from the $1.2bn espionage saga. The actor’s most recent appearance as Bourne was in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, following which Jeremy Renner played a different agent in the less successful The Bourne Legacy in 2012.

Matt Damon Reveals First Bourne 5 Details and Shooting Locations

Perhaps the only person unhappy to hear that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass will reunite for a fifth Bourne movie is Jeremy Renner. Why? Well, Universal essentially scrapped The Bourne Legacy follow-up which had its release date swiped by this anticipated release. It’s not exactly hard to understand why they did that of course.

Matt Damon explains why he's returned for a "post-Snowden" Bourne 5: 'It feels like the world has changed'

28 August 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matt Damon long wanted to make Bourne 5 a reality - and all he needed was for the world to change.

The actor is re-teaming with director Paul Greengrass beginning next week on an all-new Jason Bourne adventure, after passing on 2012's Jeremy Renner vehicle The Bourne Legacy.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Damon said that a massive change in global politics was needed before he could bring back Jason Bourne.

"We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change," he explained.

"Without giving too much of it away, it's Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy."

While the plot remains tightly under wraps, Damon did let »

Matt Damon On How Recent Political Scandals Helped Shape Bourne 5

28 August 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Matt Damon just provided an update on the upcoming fifth instalment to the Bourne franchise, explaining the main thrust and drive that drew him back to the character. As it turns out, we have Edward Snowden and the recent austerity crisis across Europe to thank for Damon.s involvement. During his recent discussion with Buzz Feed, Matt Damon, who previously starred in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Legacy, which in turn helped to turn him into a legitimate action star, admitted that everyone involved had to wait for the world to change in order to bring a fresh edge to the series. He explained that after discussing the idea of a follow-up a number of times with director Paul Greengrass over the years, it wasn.t until Edward Snowden and the Nsa whistleblowing tales emerged that they felt they had a story worth telling.

'Bourne 5' Shoots Next Week, Set in Post-Snowden World

28 August 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though the last movie in the franchise, The Bourne Legacy, debuted in 2012, we haven't seen Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in eight years, since he last played the character in 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum. And when Bourne 5 hits theaters in July of 2016, almost a full decade will have gone by. That's a lot of time, and a lot has changed in the world. Especially when it comes to civil liberties and democracy. In a new interview, Matt Damon confirms that these themes will be at the forefront of the new story his team is setting out to tell.

No real plot details have been released for Bourne 5. Though, the main cast is starting to come together, with newcomers Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander joining the sequel earlier this year. And Julia Stiles is returning to reprise her role as Bourne ally Nicky Parsons from previous installments. Though, these previous »

Matt Damon Shares Cool 'Bourne' Sequel Plot and Production Updates

28 August 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jason Bourne is back in business, after an eight-year absence, in a 2016 "Bourne" movie starring Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, and (maybe?) Viggo Mortensen.

While promoting "The Martian," Matt Damon gave Buzzfeed some updates on the untitled "Bourne" sequel, which starts production next week. Damon said he and director Paul Greengrass had always looked at the "Bourne" movies as about the Bush presidency, so they took a page from John Mayer and waited on the world to change before revisiting Damon's character. Thanks to Edward Snowden and the Nsa scandal, they felt it was time to be Bourne again. Here are Damon's details on the new plot:

Without giving too much of it away, it's Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy. »

The top 25 secret agents in film

27 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...

Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".

Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.

During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

U.N.C.L.E.: Will International Moviegoers Save WB's Domestic Box Office Flop?

19 August 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' 2015: Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' movie is a domestic box office bomb: Will it be saved by international filmgoers? Directed by Sherlock Holmes' Guy Ritchie and toplining Man of Steel star Henry Cavill and The Lone Ranger costar Armie Hammer, the Warner Bros. release The Man from U.N.C.L.E. has been a domestic box office disaster, performing about 25 percent below – already quite modest – expectations. (See also: “'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Movie: Bigger Box Office Flop Than Expected.”) This past weekend, the $80 million-budget The Man from U.N.C.L.E. collected a meager $13.42 million from 3,638 North American theaters, averaging $3,689 per site. After five days out, the big-screen reboot of the popular 1960s television series starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum has taken in a mere $16.77 million. For comparison's sake: »

Stars Talk "Bourne 6," "Fantastic 2" Possibilities

1 August 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the casts of "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation" and "Fantastic Four" doing press tours, a few key quotes have come up from some of the stars of those films.

First up Jeremy Renner spoke with ScreenRant about the Bourne franchise which he became a part of playing Aaron Cross in "The Bourne Legacy". With Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass returning to the franchise for the next outing, it's already been indicated Renner's character won't cross paths with Damon in the next film.

If the studio did decide to do it in another sequel though, Renner was asked if he'd be up for it. He says: "Yeah, I mean in two seconds. I love that world. I love the character. If they want to do that, I'm in. there's no 'no' coming from this direction."

Meanwhile, the "Fantastic Four" cast was asked by ComicBook.com about what they would like to »
