After 3 years, Jason Bourne aka Matt Damon is coming back with another Bourne movie.
The new Bourne movie will be based on the spinoff action-drama series, Treadstone. Jason Bourne is a 2016 American action thriller film and the next movie is the fifth of the Bourne series. The show, which is primarily set within the present day, follows a number of sleeper agents after the supposed shuttering of Treadstone years prior. The series will expand the lore of the franchise and fill in the blanks fans for its upcoming films that they have been searching for.
Ben Smith, who is a producer of the films and Treadstone while speaking about the series gave us a hint on Jason Bourne’s next movie. He said, “I mean we are definitely working on another film. What we’re doing within that? Will there be connected tissue in terms of are we all existing within the same world and universe? Absolutely, the details of that are still under wraps.”
Plot for next Jason Bourne movie
There are no details about the next Jason Bourne movie and what we will get to see. There were some doubts that we will see the next movie in the franchise. Now those hopes are alive yet again, and it seems Treadstone may lay the groundwork in providing us some clues for whatever this next film will show.
Treadstone is an action-packed thriller set amidst the black ops program Operation Treadstone. It is a top-secret black ops program of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the Jason Bourne series of novels and movies. They recruit U.S. Service members and turn them into superhuman assassins. They used a behavior-modification program to break down the assassins’ morality and turn them into nearly unstoppable living weapons. From all the assassins there is just Jason Bourne who survives. This all happens after the Vietnam War.
Matt Damon turns a Superstar as Jason Bourne
Matt Damon was not a known personality until 2002. After he signed in the movie as Jason Bourne, it made him a superstar. Matthew Paige Damon, the American actor, film producer, and screenwriter. He is known for starring as Jason Bourne in the Bourne franchise. Damon is also one of the highest-grossing actors of all time. He is Academy Award-winning screenwriter for his work on 1997’s Good Will Hunting. He has given some popular hits like Saving Private Ryan, Rounders, Dogma, and Ocean’s Eleven, to name a mere few. But Damon was by no means a proven action star, and his name didn’t ensure a film’s blockbuster status.
So now for the next Jason Bourne movie, the TV show raises an important question, Will the series need Matt Damon’s involvement? Will it need its title character to be a major hit?
Matt Damon in next Jason Bourne movie
Now that Matt Demon is turning 50, he will not be able to keep it like the same way that we have seen before. As the film series involves many dangerous stunts, hyper-intense martial arts, and extreme peril as the Bourne series. Jason Bourne might not be able to fight bad guys for many more years without getting seriously injured. There generally comes a point when actors simply can’t do action sequences.
Without increased output from special effects and stunt coordinators, it’s difficult for them. Just like Indiana Jones and even the Bond series. It’s important to retire a specific version of a character and move on to something else. The Jason Bourne movie Producers and studio heads would probably love to incorporate Matt Damon but that’s not possible.
The cast for Jason Bourne character
For the character, Universal Studios have explored some options for the Jason Bourne character. The franchises previously attempt in The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner wasn’t nearly as successful, though it also wasn’t a total failure.
The movie did a decent box office and earn some favorable reviews, though it receives a mix response. Comparisons to the original three movies were inevitable. Some viewers found it to be an inferior spinoff with a muddled plotline that didn’t have the same draw of the previous installments.
