The new Jason Bourne, spin off film is about to start production this fall, and the film’s director, Tony Gilroy, is on the hunt for the film’s new leading star. Gilroy met up with many different actors who are in the hopes of getting the opportunity. Keep in mind though, the next actor will not be replacing Matt Damon. The next film will have nothing to do with Jason Bourne, it’s going to be a completely new different story.
Matt Damon said no to starring in the next Bourne flick ’cause he wouldn’t do it without Paul Greengrass, directing. So they had to re-write the story. Actors possibly in the running for the role: Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Taylor Kitsch, Michael Fassbender, and many more.
My pick would be Taylor Kitsch. Taylor deserves this huge opportunity. He needs this recognition. I really hope Gyllenhaal and Maguire don’t get it.
Ever since the Deadline website reported that Tony Gilroy is on board to helm, the next Jason Bourne flick, Gilroy cleared up the fact that the Jason Bourne character won’t be in the next film at all. Gilroy also says, it’s not a prequel, reboot or a recast. He explains that this is an original script, a complete standalone film. He says the script has a new hero and someone totally different.
Gilroy even explains the plot a little bit. He says everything you saw in the first three films actually happened, they plan to show you the bigger side of things of how everything happened. Read what Gilroy have to say, here.
Now, the movie sounds very interesting to me! COOL! Looking forward to seeing who the new character is. Will the new hero be a man or a woman? It’ll probably be a man, but I’d like the hero to be a woman this time. Lets hope they don’t get Shia Labeouf, Channing Tatum, or Jeremy Renner in the lead. I won’t bother if any of those guys get the role.
Hope they pick a good actor for the new character. Sounds good!
Universal Pictures, has officially found their director for Jason Bourne 4. The new director is Tony Gilroy. Gilroy also did, “Duplicity”, and, “Michael Clayton”. Don’t count on Matt Damon coming back for Bourne 4 ’cause it looks like it won’t happen. Damon won’t do it without Paul Greengrass. So look like we’re gonna get a different actor for, Jason Bourne. It also sounds like they are re-booting the entire franchise as this article said they are going back to the beggining, not continuing from the last Bourne movie.
See the article here at, Deadline.
Could the franchise be successful without Matt Damon? To be honest with you, yes it could be successful easily. Hope they find a good actor for the next, Jason Bourne. I’m a big fan of the Jason Bourne stories. Huge fan. If James Bond and Jack Ryan can go through so many different actors, the same will happen with the Jason Bourne movies.
Who should be the next Jason Bourne? I hope it won’t be Jeremy Renner or Channing Tatum.
I would like Jason Ritter from NBC’s “The Event”, to be the new Bourne. That show, “The Event” is almost Bourne like, Jason Ritter might be a good pick.
