Bourne 5
Perhaps it was inevitable, and maybe too good to be true. Latino Review has been on a hot streak of movie scoops of late, but perhaps their latest just got stymied. The rumor, as of late last night, was that the 5th Untitled Bourne Film, now delayed until summer 2016, was held over because Matt Damon would be returning to the fold as Jason Bourne to cross paths with new ‘Bourne’ franchise actor Jeremy Renner. Longtime Producer Frank Marshall has said in the past having Renner and Damon in the same ‘Bourne’ film would be his ultimate dream, but apparently that’s not happening for the next movie.

Doug Liman’s first feature-length directorial outing in four years, the Tom Cruise-starring sci-fi blockbuster “Edge of Tomorrow,” sees release later this year and the “Bourne Identity” director isn’t wasting time in lining up a follow-up gig. THR reports Liman is being courted by Warner Bros. to helm an adaptation of the forthcoming children’s novel “Railhead.”

When we last heard about "Jurassic Park IV," it was back in May, when pre-production was temporarily suspended, or at least reorganized, so the creative team could get a better grasp on the material. The summer 2014 release date, everyone agreed, wasn't feasible. But until then, there wasn't much in the way of news about the project. Until last night, when Universal announced that "Jurassic Park IV" will now be called "Jurassic World" and will open on June 12, 2015. Oh and it's going to be in 3D. Because that's still a thing, apparently.

Frank Marshall Says 'Star Wars 7' Director Down To A Couple Candidates, David Cronenberg Talks 'Return Of The Jedi' Offer

We started our day with "Star Wars: Episode 7" tidbits, and we're closing our day with more, because that's just how it's going to go with the hugely anticipated sequel. While Matthew Vaughn and Colin Trevorrow are thus far the only names surfacing in the rumor pile to direct, helmers like Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Zack Snyder and J.J. Abrams have been quick to distance themselves from the conversation. So you might think Disney and Lucasfilm would having trouble finding someone to direct. Not so.

That 'Indiana Jones 5' Movie You Didn't Want Probably Won't Happen Now That George Lucas Is Retired

Nobody knows better how to milk a franchise until it's creatively bankrupt than George Lucas. Having driven "Star Wars" down the wormhole of prequels, animated spinoffs, video games and more, taking it straight into oblivion, it seemed the Indiana Jones franchise was next on his list. As if enduring "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" wasn't enough, last fall Steven Spielberg revealed that Lucas had sort of cracked the nut on a fifth movie, figuring out what the MacGuffin would be, but hadn't yet put the story together. But it seems that's as far as it will ever get.

Is it time to start humming that immense John Williams theme in our heads again? It has been over a decade since our last trip to Jurassic Park with Dr. Alan Grant, but it seems like we’re edging closer and closer to heading back there again. It won't be with Steven Spielberg at the helm again (but he’ll of course produce through Amblin), and just last month we heard that “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver were being handed the task of penning "Jurassic Park IV." At the time we pondered whether they’d be starting from scratch or working from the barmy John Sayles script or a more recent Mark Protosevich draft, but we never stopped to wonder how soon we might be seeing “Jurassic Park IV.”

A few months ago, Frank Marshall said his "dream" was for Jeremy Renner and Matt Damon to star in a film together. Spit out the other end of chinese-whisper reporting, that became 'Frank Marshall says Matt Damon will star in 'Bourne 5.'' In fact, that doesn't seem to be the case, at least for the moment.

Tony Gilroy Responds To Matt Damon's 'Ultimatum' Diss & More From Empire's Feature On 'The Bourne Legacy'

In a summer where more has been more when it comes to movie marketing (to the extent where a 25-minute cut of "The Amazing Spider-Man" has been assembled from clips and trailers alone), there's one film that's managed to keep things pretty much under wraps: "The Bourne Legacy." A continuation of Universal's blockbuster spy franchise, which sees Tony Gilroy -- writer on the first three films -- take over directorial duties having subsequently proved his chops (and how...) on the Oscar-nominated "Michael Clayton," the picture also stars Jeremy Renner taking over lead duties as Aaron Cross, another top-flight agent, albeit a very different character.

'Bourne' Producer Developing Adaptation Of Jeffrey Archer Thriller 'A Matter Of Honor'

We imagine that Jeffrey Archer is not particularly well known outside the U.K. Which is a shame, because he's a fascinating figure; elected to Parliament aged only 29, before giving it up after five years, he went on to become both a millionaire and a successful writer of potboiler thrillers (perhaps most notably the "Kane and Abel" series, which CBS turned into a TV miniseries starring Sam Neill in the 80s). He returned to politics in the 1980s, becoming deputy chairman of the Conservative Party, but was swiftly unseated by a sex scandal, with tabloid the Daily Star alleging that he'd paid a prostitute for sex.
