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

'The Bourne Legacy' clip: Jeremy Renner always lands on his feet -- VIDEO

What would a Bourne movie be without a scene of a confused, manipulated assassin flying across roof tops in a foreign country killing bad guys? Not much of one at all, if you ask me. The creators of The Bourne Legacy, the fourth installment of Universal’s movie franchise based on the Robert Ludlum novels, apparently agree.

In the latest footage from the new sidequel — which hits theaters Aug. 10 – Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross channels his inner Jason Bourne as he parkours his way across the tops of Manila’s slum shacks in an effort to shake a team of SWAT officers hot on his tail.

Check out the clip below to see Renner in action and also to witness just how he saves Rachel Weisz’s character, who has gotten herself caught in a bit of a pickle.

Hint: it involves Renner disposing of a cop much like this guy treats unsuspecting empty cans of cheap American beer…
