In the new trailer for Jason Bourne Tommy Lee Jones’ character asks why Bourne would come back now. The answer as to why the character Bourne is back isn’t really explained in the trailer, but the reason Matt Damon is back after a decade is because he thought the story was right. That, and the fact director Paul Greengrass was up for returning to the franchise brought Damon back to the role for the fourth time. Damon previously starred in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum, skipping only The Bourne Legacy which found Jeremy Renner taking over the lead. Jason Bourne marks Greengrass’ third time as director of a Bourne movie starring Damon.
The cast of Jason Bourne also includes Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and the aforementioned Tommy Lee Jones. Paul Greengrass co-wrote the script with Christopher Rouse and produced along with Frank Marshall, Jeffrey Weiner, Matt Damon, Gregory Goodman, and Ben Smith. Universal Pictures will release Jason Bourne in theaters on July 29, 2016.
The Plot: Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.
