Universal is moving ahead with yet another entry into the Bourne series.
Jeremy Renner is set to return to his Aaron Cross character. Anthony Peckham, the writer responsible for Sherlock Holmes, has been hired by Universal to script another entry into the highly profitable series.
No word yet on the plot, other characters returning, or the likelihood of Damon reprising his titular role.
Universal is pushing hard to make Bourne into the next Bond franchise. I’m really excited about this entry due to the fact this is a crucial point in the franchise’s development. There are options on the board. Damon could come back, Renner could be moved into more of a sole franchise protagonist. I’m very interested in the direction that they take this.
