"Fast Five" Director Justin Lin in Talks for "The Bourne Legacy" Sequel

Posted: November 9th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Fast Five" Director Justin Lin in Talks for "The Bourne Legacy" SequelSubmit Comment
"The Bourne Ultimatum" is not only the highest grossing Jason Bourne movie, but is also the best reviewed with a 94% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. So after Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass decided not to return for a fourth film, it was a difficult decision to reboot the franchise.

That reboot, called "The Bourne Legacy," starred Jeremy Renner as a different character existing in the same world as Bourne. Unfortunately, the movie became the lowest-grossing domestically (was released in more theaters, but earned half of "The Bourne Ultimatum") and the worst-reviewed out of the four Borne movies. And it also had the biggest budget.

This is why Universal Pictures has been looking for a way to have Damon return to the franchise that would also keep Renner's character. But Damon has been saying that he'll only return if Greengrass does. So the questions is... Does Greengrass have any interest in taking on "Bourne 5"?

The answer is no. In fact, the studio is already in talks with Justin Lin, who successfully revived the studio's "Fast and Furious" franchise, to direct the new Jason Bourne film. And at this point, only Renner will reprise his role. And Damon is not expected to return.

@PORN-FLY
Hey Lin fixed one franchise, maybe he can fix another. Or, other note, he destroys it Bourne finally may rest in peace. LOL

Here's a tip: fire Renner, fire the previous screenwriter and fire the previous director. Start over. No more Renner, no more Pukey-Cam, no more special, magical drug-related plot devices. None of that. Just start over.

Always confuse Justin Lin with James Wan even though their movies are totally different, but I think Fast and Furious was ok so he can probably make a solid action flick !
Think we got a Jack Ryan thing going on-will probably end up with 4 different actors playing J. Bourne

Let me guess, he will probably get Diesel or The Rock to play the bad guy.
