Rachel Weisz In Talks To See The Light Between Oceans With Michael Fassbender And Alicia Vikander

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After taking on roles in thrillers like Dream House and The Bourne Legacy, then a supporting part in the big-budget blockbuster Oz the Great and Powerful, Rachel Weisz is getting back to smaller dramatic fare by joining Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander in the Derek Cianfrance-directed The Light Between Oceans.

The drama, an adaptation of the bestselling novel of the same name by M.L. Stedman, is set on a remote island off the coast of Australia in the years following World War I. It centers on a lighthouse keeper (Fassbender) and his lonely wife (Vikander), who are faced with an unexpected moral conundrum when a small boat containing a dead man and a two-month-old infant washes ashore. When the pair decide to keep the child and raise it as their own, the consequences of that choice are devastating.

Weisz is set to play the mother of the infant, who »

What Is the Best Part Four of a Movie Franchise?

29 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

For some fans, Transformers: Age of Extinction will be the best of the franchise. Mainly if those fans are more fond of Mark Wahlberg as an Optimus Prime sidekick than Shia Labeouf. For others, it'll be the same as most fourth installments, a sequel that is far enough removed from the favored original that the series seems to be wearing out its welcome.  Part fours are tricky by nature. They often follow a trio of movies that fit nicely together as a trilogy, even if they were of lesser quality as they went along. Look at how Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tide and Terminator Salvation and The Bourne Legacy threw off the balance of their respective franchises.  But while there are some really horrible fourth parts out...

Matt Damon Will Not Return For Bourne 5

24 June 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal

It’s been confirmed by Bourne producer Frank Marshall that actor Matt Damon will not be returning as Jason Bourne for the fifth installment in the series of espionage action films.

Damon starred in the original three films, based on the novels by Robert Ludlum, helping to make them an international success that changed the face of spy thrillers. Jeremy Renner replaced Damon as the face of the franchise for the fourth film, 2012′s The Bourne Legacy. In it he starred as Aaron Cross, a government operative who is part of a shadowy special ops program.

Marshall told The Hollywood Reporter: “It’s simply not true,” adding that director Justin Lin “is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago.

Bourne 5 producer denies Matt Damon return: "It's simply not true"

23 June 2014 3:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Longtime Bourne franchise producer Frank Marshall has denied that Matt Damon will return for Bourne 5.

A report emerged last week that the fifth film had been delayed in order to allow Damon to reprise his role as Jason Bourne, alongside Jeremy Renner's Bourne Legacy lead Aaron Cross.

"It's simply not true," Marshall told The Hollywood Reporter. "[Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago.

"I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It's a summer movie, and if we don't start pre-production now, we can't make next summer. Therefore, it's a wise decision to move to 2016."

Marshall has previously admitted that his dream for the next Bourne film is to "see Matt and Jeremy team up."

Damon, for his part, has said that he would be open to returning only if »

The Bourne Legacy 2 Producer Says Matt Damon is Not Returning

Just as we decided to trust Latino-Review, one of their exclusive stories turns out to be wrong. The site reported that "The Bourne Legacy" sequel was delayed so that Matt Damon can reprise his role as Jason Bourne alongside Jeremy Renner, who's returning as Aaron Cross. Now comes word from "The Bourne Legacy" producer Frank Marshall that there's not truth to the story. "It's simply not true," he said. "[Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It's a summer movie, and if we don't start pre-production now, we can't make next summer. Therefore, it's a wise decision to move to 2016."

Matt Damon Not Coming Back for Next Bourne Movie

20 June 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You know the rumor about Matt Damon possibly returning for the next film in the Bourne franchise? Just a rumor, sorry. "It's simply not true," executive producer Frank Marshall told The Hollywood Reporter, bursting the bubble of those who were hoping that Damon didn't want to sit back and let Jeremy Renner have all the super-spy fun. The fifth movie in the series, first based on and now inspired by the novel series by the late Robert Ludlum, will instead again focus on the Aaron Cross character played by Renner in The Bourne Legacy. Meanwhile, the "news" that Damon will not be reprising the role of Jason Bourne comes on the heels of Universal Pictures' »

Matt Damon Will Not Return in 'The Bourne Legacy' Sequel

20 June 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, a report surfaced that Matt Damon, who played Jason Bourne in Universal Pictures' action trilogy The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, will reprise his popular role in the studio's sequel to The Bourne Legacy. Producer Frank Marshall has now debunked that report, stating that the decision to move the sequel from August 2015 to July 2016 was not because Matt Damon is coming back, but because the script is still not ready yet. Here's what the producer had to say in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, confirming that the story centers on Aaron Cross, played by Jeremy Renner in 2012's The Bourne Legacy.

"It's simply not true. [Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It's a summer movie, »

Producer Frank Marshall Shoots Down Rumors Of Matt Damon In 'Bourne 5'

20 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Perhaps it was inevitable, and maybe too good to be true. Latino Review has been on a hot streak of movie scoops of late, but perhaps their latest just got stymied. The rumor, as of late last night, was that the 5th Untitled Bourne Film, now delayed until summer 2016, was held over because Matt Damon would be returning to the fold as Jason Bourne to cross paths with new ‘Bourne’ franchise actor Jeremy Renner. Longtime Producer Frank Marshall has said in the past having Renner and Damon in the same ‘Bourne’ film would be his ultimate dream, but apparently that’s not happening for the next movie. "It's simply not true," Marshall told THR today, noting that Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross from “The Bourne Legacy” is still the main character here. "[Director] Justin Lin is working with [screenwriter] Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. »

As Expected Frank Marshall Denies Matt Damon Is Bourne Again

20 June 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Late last night, El Mayimbe of Latino Review posted his latest scoop which stated Matt Damon was going to play Jason Bourne once more. That would explain the why the next Bourne film was pushed back August 14, 2015 to July 15, 2016. Fast & Furious director, Justin Lin, would still be directing the film, but how Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross fit into the picture wasn't clear. El Mayimbe cautioned that Paramount and producer Frank Marshall would quickly try to debunk his story, and here's their first attempt. "It's simply not true," Marshall tells THR, adding that the film will feature the Aaron Cross character played by Jeremy Renner in the 2012 installment, The Bourne Legacy. "[Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It's a »

Rumor: Universal Delayed Bourne 5 So That Matt Damon Can Return

20 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: Bourne 5 producer Frank Marshall has dismissed this rumor, stating:

“It’s simply not true. [Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It’s a summer movie, and if we don’t start pre-production now, we can’t make next summer. Therefore, it’s a wise decision to move to 2016.”

Sorry, Bourne fans. It looks like rumors of Damon’s return were groundless after all.

Original Post:

More than a few of us were surprised when Universal bumped its summer tentpole, unofficially titled Bourne 5, almost a full year, from August of 2015 to July of 2016. The reasons given included that a script (being rewritten by Andrew Baldwin) wasn’t yet finalized and that Nwa biopic Straight Outta Compton was demanding a summer release date. »

Matt Damon Back As Jason Bourne?

20 June 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Bourne Legacy was a moderate success in 2012, and earned just about enough money to secure another instalment in the adrenaline-fuelled franchise. Although the film was an entertaining action thriller with a great cast and some awesome chase sequences, it didn’t quite match up to its three predecessors starring Matt Damon.

Earlier this week it was announced that the second Bourne film starring Jeremy Renner had been pushed back to 2016, meaning we will have to wait an extra year for the fifth film in the series. However with interest in the franchise clearly dwindling with time, Universal are keen to regain the success it enjoyed with Matt Damon. For that reason it would make perfect sense to grant the wish of every fan and bring back its original star for (potentially) one of the best movie team-ups of all time. And from the sounds of this latest report, that »

Matt Damon May Return as Jason Bourne in 'The Bourne Legacy' Sequel

20 June 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Universal Pictures announced that its sequel to 2012's action-thriller The Bourne Legacy has been shifted from a August 14, 2015 release to July 15, 2016, reportedly to make room for the studio's biopic Straight Outta Compton which took the August 14, 2015 slot. An unconfirmed report from Latino-Review claims the real reason for the delay is that Matt Damon has finally agreed to reprise his role as Jason Bourne.

It isn't clear how director Justin Lin managed to convince Matt Damon to come back, especially since the actor has repeatedly stated in the past that he will only return to the franchise if The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is back at the helm. The actor did reveal last month that he is open to returning, if he and Paul Greengrass can find a story they like, even suggesting that fans submit their own stories to Universal Pictures.

Bourne 5 delayed to incorporate Matt Damon’s return? Not according to producer Frank Marshall

20 June 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As reported this past week, the fifth Bourne film starring Jeremy Renner (The Avengers) has been delayed by Universal Pictures for over a year. Pushed back to the summer of 2016, much speculation and rumour has since flown around as to the reason for the delay.

Latino-Review has apparently got wind of what is really going on with the sequel. Their source claims the delay is because Damon has agreed to reprising his role as Jason Bourne, and is set to return for Bourne 5, directed by Fast & Furious alum Justin Lin.

Damon had always maintained that he would only ever return to Bourne if previous director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum) was to return also. He said: “I love that character and I’d love to see what happened to him”.

With a global gross of just $276million (Ultimatum had finished the Damon-led trilogy with $440million worldwide), the Renner vehicle The Bourne Legacy, »

Matt Damon rumoured for Bourne 5 return

20 June 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new report has linked Matt Damon to Bourne 5.

The actor is said to be returning to the franchise after a seven-year absence.

Latino Review claims that director Justin Lin has convinced the reluctant Damon to return for the next action instalment.

Last month, Damon told CNBC: "I've always been open to [another Bourne film] 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."

Damon was last seen on screen as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Ultimatum - completing his original trilogy.

Jeremy Renner starred in 2012's The Bourne Legacy.

Universal Pictures pushed back the release of Bourne 5 from August 2015 to July 15, 2016 earlier this week. »
