Matt Damon Is No Longer Part Of 'The Bourne Legacy'

Oct 12th, 2010

Move over, Matt Damon. You will not be a part of the fourth series in The Bourne Legacy. The film will focus on a new hero--which is ridiculous because Matt made the character Jason Bourne the way he is. Director Tony Gilroy sat down with Hollywood Elsewhere regarding the flick.

It's a completely original screenplay," Gilroy told Hollywood Elsewhere of the tentatively-titled The Bourne Legacy.

"This is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel," he explained. "No one's replacing Matt Damon. There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter…this is a stand-alone project."

"The easiest way to think of it is an expansion or a reveal. Jason Bourne will not be in this film, but he's very much alive."

We wonder how Matt feels about all of this. The ball's in your court, Matty.
