Matt Damon could be swayed to ‘Bourne’ with Gilroy as director

HollywoodNews.com: With Warner Bros. ecstatic today about Zack Snyder’s involvement with its “Superman” reboot, Universal had its own franchise horn to toot.

Tony Gilroy, the beloved screenwriter of the Jason Bourne films, will be taking the directorial reigns of the fourth film, “The Bourne Legacy.” Gilroy has yet to crank out a script.

Matt Damon has said that he won’t do another Jason Bourne film without Paul Greengrass in the director’s chair; however, those close to the project say that the actor could be swayed with the right script. Variety had the news.

Still if Damon decides not to reprise his role, Universal has no qualms about finding a new lead.

“Bourne Legacy” marks Gilroy’s third film as director after the screwball caper “Duplicity” and the George Clooney legal drama-thriller “Michael Clayton;” which was nominated for a best picture Oscar in 2008.

Universal is eyeing a 2012 release date.
