Get ready for more shaky-cam adventures: Deadline reports that Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass, who helmed The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, will reunite for another film in the Jason Bourne franchise. While both have said they would not be returning to the series — with Greengrass saying there was no place for the character to go now that he has regained his memory — it looks like they’ve changed their minds. According to sources, the reteam would be the next film to go into production with an intended release date of July 16, 2016, meaning it will move ahead of the spinoff sequel (to 2012’s The Bourne Legacy) starring Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross and directed by Fast & Furious’ Justin Lin. Now all they need to do is come up with a name for it. So ... Bourne Again?
