Matt Damon Could Join Jeremy Renner For Another ‘Bourne’ Movie

+

Despite playing the title character, Matt Damon is decidedly not the star of the newest Bourne movie, The Bourne Legacy. But just because Jeremy Renner is replacing Damon as the new steel-emotioned, square-jawed action star doesn’t mean Bourne won’t eventually make his way back to the franchise. In an interview with Empire, producer Frank Marshall said of another sequel, “All possibilities are open. My dream is that in the next one we see Matt and Jeremy team up.” Which: marketing success! Nothing’s better than a blast from the past to make the new stuff go down easier, especially if audiences don’t immediately cotton to Renner’s solid-but-not-starstruck replacement rating. Obviously, this is a trend that should be stretched across other franchises. Let’s see Tobey Maguire appear as an alternate reality Peter Parker in another Spider-Man movie, showing up to inform Andrew Garfield about the pitfalls of living at home for too long. Let’s see Chris O’Donnell making a cameo at the end of The Dark Knight Rises to once again offer his services to Batman as his sidekick. Orlando Bloom making his way into the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean flick and muttering “Here we go again,” and every iteration of Jack Ryan we ever saw (Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck, Harrison Ford) teaming up to fight some global terrorism threat. Everything old is new again! Let’s really ramp this up for 2013 and beyond. The Bourne Legacy is out on August 13.
