Edward Berger will take over from Paul Greengrass seven years after the release of ‘Jason Bourne’, the fifth installment of the franchise
Jason Bourne returns to theaters! It’s been seven years since Paul Greengrasswho already shone in ‘The Myth’ and ‘The Ultimatum’, the second and third installments of the saga, brought to the big screen for the last time the Lethal CIA agent created by Robert Ludlum. Well, if you missed the character and want to get a new dose of action in your mouth that, hopefully, lives up to his legacy, I have good news.
Jesus Christ, that’s Jason Bourne!
According to Deadline exclusively, the people at Universal Pictures would be interested in dusting off the franchise, and already has given the green light to early development of a new feature film which, in addition, would already have a director. Nothing less than Edward Berger He will be in charge – if the negotiations are fruitful – of supervising pre-production and taking the lead as director.
In this way, Berger, who has just reached his peak with his four-time Oscar-winning ‘All Quiet on the Front’ – including the award for best international film – will take over from Doug Liman, Tony Gilroy and the aforementioned Greengrass to shape a title that, as sources close to the project have confirmed, does not yet have a script.
We are equally blinded when it comes to the potential cast of the film, including the performer who will play the titular hero.. Of course, if it is not a new late sequel with Matt Damon at the helm, the chosen one will have a difficult time filling the Cambridge gap; and as an example there is the work of Jeremy Renner in ‘The Bourne Legacy’, where he played a new protagonist incapable of overshadowing his predecessor.
We will be aware of any new details about a project that just because of the license and the filmmaker linked to it already deserves all of our attention.
