He’s probably going to be one of those really lame villains that uses brainpower instead of guns.
He should have some TEAM LUKE t-shirts printed up.
Who will become the next one-man ultimate killing machine?
"Hey! Pick that up, jerk!!"
With Paul Greengrass being "out this bitch," the stage was set for Tony Gilroy to step in and take the helm on the fourth Bourne film. Matt Damon stated he would standby Greengrass, and walk from the project as well. Since that time, everyone was curious what would become of the franchise. Recast? Reboot? A prequelization? Is that a word?
Today, Gilroy answers the burning question. Matt Damon will not appear in the film, nor will his character be recast. The Bourne Legacy will not feature Jason Bourne whatsoever. Rather, a new agent will be introduced in an effort to expand the Bourne universe and conspiracy. So, like Teen Wolf Too? (Hollywood Elsewhere)
"MEEOOWWW!!!! KITCH!! KITCH!!"
Last fall, it seemed like the Bourne series was sunk when Paul Greengrass pulled a bitchfit and removed himself and star Matt Damon from a fourth Bourne film. That doesn't seem to bother Universal too much. Despite the fact that he directed Duplicity, they've just hired Tony Gilroy to direct the next chapter. Gilroy, of course, wrote each of the previous films as well as the newest script. Not sure if they plan to use Damon, recast, shoot a prequel, or go the tried-and-true route of using a cardboard cut-out. You really can't tell the difference if you shake the camera around enough.

Tony Gilroy, the screenwriter for the original Bourne trilogy, has signed on to write the treatment for The Bourne Legacy, the planned fourth installment of the franchise. Gilroy joins Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley, who have returned to produce.Despite the positive momentum, not all of the original pieces are in place. Actor Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass have yet to sign on to the project, and Damon has stated that he will only participate if Greengrass directs. Then again, people say a lot of things. My old girlfriend said we'd be together forever, but as soon as she got the starring role in Precious, she dropped me like an empty Taco Bell wrapper. Be careful, Greengrass. It could happen to you!
