Bourne Legacy

Well, if there was any doubt about negotiations or deal points, squash them now: “Fast & Furious 6” helmer Justin Lin is 100% confirmed to direct the fifth and currently untitled installment in the ‘Bourne’ franchise. 

Moreover, “Bourne 5” now joins the crowded summer 2015 field according to Universal who has now dated the picture for a Friday, August 14, 2015 release. Jeremy Renner will return as the lead but don’t look for Matt Damon or series architect/screenwriter Tony Gilroy as both of them have moved on. The movie will square off against "The Smurfs 3," which is going for a different audience anyway.

Universal has also dated Luc Besson’s next film. Titled “Lucy” and starring Scarlett Johansson, the movie is now scheduled for a Friday, August 8, 2014 bow.

Details on both films below from the official press release:

About LUCY

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in LUCY, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. LUCY also stars Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman and is produced by Virginie Besson-Silla for EuropaCorp. Universal Pictures will distribute the movie worldwide, except for France, Benelux and China.

About UNTITLED NEXT BOURNE CHAPTER

Blockbuster action director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious series) will direct the fifth installment of Universal Pictures’ BOURNE espionage franchise, inspired by the series created by Robert Ludlum. Jeremy Renner returns as Aaron Cross for this chapter and Frank Marshall once again produces, alongside Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith for Captivate. Lin will also produce for his Perfect Storm Entertainment.
