Matt Damon won't do a fourth 'Bourne' without Paul Greengrass



Tbd-mattdamon120409 Don't hold your breath for a fourth Bourne movie; Matt Damon says he's off the project unless director Paul Greengrass is on board, and Paul just told Universal to stuff it in their pieholes until they come up with a decent script. Actually, we can't complain about any of this.

"I'm waiting for Paul," the actor told, "and he'll come back when there's a script."

To be fair, there is a script, written by Damon cohort George Nolfi, but it seems Greengrass didn't care for it. Universal reportedly commissioned another script, but then Paul took off.

Greengrass directed The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, while Doug Liman did the original The Bourne Identity. There are no more novels from Robert Ludlum to even loosely base a fourth installment on, so we can only pray there's no wisecracking, ersatz James Bond played by Channing Tatum in our future.
