We reported earlier this week that Paul Greengrass bailed on the fourth Bourne installment after having a falling out with the cash-strapped Universal. Now it appears that Matt Damon is showing some loyalty, and sticking by his director’s side.
When Screen Junkies caught up with Damon at the Invictus press junket he told us, "I’ll wait for him and when he wants to do one, we’ll do it." When asked specifically is it Greengrass or no Bourne, the actor went on to say, "I’ve always said that, but I think it will happen. Just down the road. We don’t have a script right now."
With Damon holding on tightly to the hand of Greengrass maybe Universal will reach a little deeper into their pockets. Afterall, they need to hold on to the Bourne series like grim death if they plan on eating anything other than Ramen next year.
