Damon Talks Fourth “Bourne” Status

Out doing promotion for “The Informant!”, Matt Damon tells Collider he and director Paul Greengrass will be meeting about a fourth Jason Bourne movie sometime in the next few weeks.

“Paul finished cutting ‘Green Zone’ except for some effects. It’s coming out in March. He hasn’t had a break literally since he did ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ – which is six years ago now. So he was like I need to take a break…so he’s been on vacation for about three weeks and he’s going to take a few more and then he said he’d come to New York and we’d sit down and we’d talk seriously about it.”

Damon confirmed he hasn’t read any script drafts yet, but remains adamant it be strong – “we are really serious about trying to get the story and the script right because the only thing more disappointing than not having another one of these movies is, for us or for movie fans is would be to make one that isn’t good. Because everyone would say, “they should have quit after three”. And we’d feel that way too.”

Due to his busy schedule, the absolute earliest filming could begin is late next year for a Summer 2011 release.
