Matt Damon is about to be “Bourne” again.
Universal will produce a fourth installment in the popular “The Bourne Identity” franchise, according to Variety.
Damon will return as superspy Jason Bourne, and Paul Greengrass (who directed “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “The Bourne Supremacy”) is also on board for the new film.
While the previous three “Bourne” movies have been based on the novels by Robert Ludlum, the latest chapter will be an original story.
George Nolfi, who co-wrote “The Bourne Ultimatum,” will pen the new script.
Universal had planned on stopping after “Ultimatum,” the third movie in the series, but decided to move forward with the fourth film after its predecessor grossed $227 million at the U.S. box office and $215 million overseas.
Damon, who last starred in “Ocean’s Thirteen” in 2007, will next be seen on the big screen in the crime drama “The Informant,” slated for a March 2009 release.
