Universal has confirmed with EW that Tony Gilroy, the writer for all three Jason Bourne films, will be writing a script for a fourth film. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are also returning to the film — tentatively titled The Bourne Legacy — as are Captive Entertainment’s Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith. One Bourne alum not currently on board? Matt Damon, who has said he would not return to the franchise without director Paul Greengrass. Universal has not yet confirmed with EW whether or not Damon will star in Legacy. The studio, however, is aiming for a 2012 release.
