After doing a non-Bourne-featuring Bourne movie saw the franchise stumble and fall, it was no surprise to see Matt Damon returning as Jason Bourne to save one of recent memory’s most popular big screen franchises. With the currently untitled fifth Bourne film now shooting, the actor himself has been giving an update on where things are currently at.
Speaking to Variety and Coming Soon, Damon said, “We’re, like, probably about halfway through. We started in September but they’re going back for most of December and cutting basically the first two acts. And then we have the third act and then whatever we owe from the first two acts. You’ll find the character, like The Bourne Ultimatum, the third act actually in the movie dovetails with the third act of The Bourne Supremacy. So technically when the Bourne character disappears, it’s still 2004. So when this next one comes out in ’16, it will have been 12 years, in movie years, that the character has been off the grid. So what’s happened in those intervening years gives you a story.”
The actor also revealed some of the shooting locations, adding, “We were in Tenerife, which is supposed to be Athens. It would be like a nightmare riot scene to kind of start the movie. And then England, Berlin a little bit for about a week, and a little bit in D.C.. Then we’re going to Vegas for the third act… big car chase on the strip.”
At present, Paul Greengrass’ Untitled Bourne 5 (as it’s being affectionately called at the moment) is set for a July 29th release.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
