Matt Damon Will Probably Return As Jason Bourne
When Matt Damon decided to walk away from the Jason Bourne franchise, it was for one very simple reason: he didn't want to make the movies without director Paul Greengrass involved, and Greengrass decided he was satisfied with the work that he had put into the series. Universal Pictures has moved on, making The Bourne Legacy with Tony Gilroy directing and Jeremy Renner starring, but now it looks like it won't be long until the original star returns.

Matt Damon May Return For Bourne 5
The Bourne Legacy cannily reloaded with Jeremy Renner and savvy writer-director Tony Gilroy, taking place during, and shortly after The Bourne Ultimatum. The results were... middling. Universal gladly took the $276 million global gross of the film, but domestically it was weaker than The Bourne Identity a decade earlier.

UPDATED: Matt Damon And Paul Greengrass May Return To The Bourne Franchise
The big question this raises, of course, is what happens to Renner's new character, Aaron Cross, who was introduced in last year's The Bourne Legacy. According to the new report, this new development isn't "an either/or scenario," suggesting that the next film will see both action heroes working together to try and take down the program that turned them into government-programmed killing machines.

The Bourne Legacy introduced audiences to Cross, who is an agent similar to Jason Bourne and came out of a similar top secret program.

Naturally, their first reaction to this success is to keep doing more of the same thing.

So the future of Bourne remains unclear as we wait to see how Legacy does overseas, and whether or not the movie fades in memory as August goes forward. While we wait, though, let us know what you think. Does Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross deserve more movies, or should they put the name Bourne on ice until they get Matt Damon back onscreen?
