LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The long-awaited fourth “Bourne” film could be inching closer to becoming a reality.
On Tuesday, following a discussion of his new project, “The People Speak,” which premieres on the History channel this fall, Matt Damon confirmed he recently met up with the producer of the popular action film series.
“I just saw Frank Marshall and we were talking about it,” Matt revealed.
The actor, who plays ex-CIA agent Jason Bourne in the big screen action franchise, also confirmed he has been in talks with the director of “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum.”
“I’ve talked to Paul Greengrass quite a bit,” Matt confirmed.
Matt said, however, he won’t make a fourth “Bourne” film unless he can ensure it will be a high-quality film.
“We won’t do it unless it’s good,” he added.
In the meantime, the actor is heading to the East Coast for a film opposite Emily Blunt – “The Adjustment Bureau.”
“I’m starting work in New York in September,” he said. “George Nulfi is directing. He wrote the last ‘Bourne’ movie.”
Matt said a few other actors have yet to be cast in the film, which follows the story of an up-and-coming congressman and a beautiful ballet dancer.
“It’s kind of a fantastical love story,” he said.
