Universal pushes next 'Bourne' pic to 2016, slates N.W.A. pic in for 2015

Audiences will have to wait a little longer than expected to get their next dose of meds and Aaron Cross.

Universal Pictures announced Wednesday that the fifth installment of the Bourne series has been pushed to a July 15, 2016 release — 11 months after its original August 2015 release date. Instead, the studio will release Straight Outta Compton on Aug. 14, 2015. The biopic recounts the rise and fall of the hip-hop group N.W.A. It stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube (Jackson’s real-life father), Dr. Dre, and Eazy-E.

Matt Damon on returning to 'Bourne' series: 'I've always been open to it' -- VIDEO

Jason Bourne fans, have your sequel ideas out and ready.

Over the weekend, Matt Damon went on CNBC, where he was asked if he’d ever return to the Bourne series. “I’ve always been open to if, if Paul Greengrass is the director,” Damon answered. Greengrass directed both The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, and Damon has said in the past that he’ll only return to the series if Greengrass is involved. “We’ve just never been able to come up with a story,” continued Damon. He went on to encourage viewers to call up Universal with their ideas.

Matt Damon on (maybe) returning to 'Bourne' and playing Liberace's lover in 'Behind the Candelabra'

Matt-Damon

When HBO airs Behind the Candelabra on May 26, the world will get to see Matt Damon play Liberace’s drug-addled, surgically enhanced lover — a role about as far from Jason Bourne as it gets.

But Damon, who sat down with costar Michael Douglas to talk with EW for this week’s cover story, says he isn’t ruling out a return to his blockbuster spy franchise despite the fact that he handed the reins over to Jeremy Renner in last year’s The Bourne Legacy. That movie rebooted the series by introducing the idea of a world with multiple Bourne-style secret agents — which means the original Jason Bourne could still be out there somewhere.

Tony Gilroy, who wrote the first one and the second one, came up with an idea: I think they look at it as kind of the reverse of X-Men,” says Damon, who opted not to sign on for a fourth film because he and director Paul Greengrass “couldn’t figure out” a script. “Whereas with X-Men, you get a giant bunch of superheroes and then do the Wolverine spinoff, I think Tony pitched it as, ‘OK, we started with the Wolverine spinoff. Now let’s try to make the X-Men. So I’ll create all these other programs, and you can have your evergreen that way. There’ll be other agents.'”

So does this mean Damon and Renner might share the screen in a Bourne movie someday? READ FULL STORY

'Bourne Legacy' trailer: Get busy living, or get busy dying

“You think that Jason Bourne was the whole story? There’s a lot more going on here.”

That’s the sales pitch for The Bourne Legacy, the Matt Damon-less side boot starring Jeremy Renner as another confused assassin. But in the second trailer for the August action movie, we see plenty of Bourne’s fingerprints. We even see his name etched in wood, as if he were Treadstone’s version of Brooks from The Shawshank Redemption.

Judging from some of the other familiar faces and scenes from the original trilogy, it looks as if writer/director Tony Gilroy is borrowing the gimmick from the third film and building scenes that we later learn occurred simultaneously. “Jason Bourne is in Manhattan,” reports a stunned government office drone to David Strathairn’s evil group leader. So how was Renner’s Aaron Cross involved in those events, or the assassination of a British journalist (Paddy Considine) at the train station? Watch below. READ FULL STORY
