All Matt Damon needed was for director Paul Greengrass to say yes. Greengrass and Damon, who teamed up for two of the Bourne films — Supremacy and Ultimatum — declined to do The Bourne Legacy, which ended up focusing on Jeremy Renner as another agent. Well, it looks like the franchise will reinstate the dream team, as the pair are shooting the film for release in 2016. "Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that's all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes," Damon told E! News. It was actually biffle Ben Affleck who spilled the beans: Both were on hand for the red carpet of Project Greenlight when Affleck said that Damon would be reprising his role as Jason Bourne just as he's "just completely lost any semblance of physical fitness." Maybe a Batman cameo would inspire him to keep fit?
