Let's not get it twisted. Everyone loves Matt Damon. He is one of the most beloved actors in the industry because he's a straight-shooter, super-approachable and one of the nicest people you will ever meet in the movie business. Recently a tasty little Damon/'Bourne' franchise news nugget started making the rounds. In a recent interview with Empire Magazine (via Get The Big Picture, not online yet apparently), Damon said, "I'd do ['Bourne'] again with Paul [Greengrass] (who directed Damon in the last two Bourne films, as well as 'Green Zone'.) Universal doesn't actually own the Bourne character - the estate does - so technically I could go to Warner Bros... and Universal could read about it online."

So with the Internet now spinning a really tenuous story about Tony Gilroy supposedly eyeing James Franco for the lead role in "The Bourne Legacy," we just want to temper things a moment and point out the one line in the NY Post report that everyone seems to be ignoring: "But a source close to Gilroy said, 'He was just there to see the movie.'"

Damon Say He's "Thrilled" Door Is Open For A Paul Greengrass-Led Return; Says 'Liberace' Still Aiming To Shoot In The Summer Of 2011 Despite Douglas' Battle With CancerNo sooner did Matt Damon say that "no one bothered" to call him regarding the Tony Gilroy-to-direct-"The Bourne Legacy"-announcement and all hell broke loose on the Internet. While Damon did sound partly miffed, those comments were soon expounded upon to be some sort of angry 'Bourne-gate' by overzealous writers (let's face it, as we said, Damon was aware this was happening and his newer comments essentially admit as much).

Though The Door Will Be Open For A Return Down The RoadWell, it's basically official now if you hadn't already guessed. Matt Damon will not be returning for what is being called, "The Bourne Legacy," Tony Gilroy's first directorial effort in the franchise after writing the first three films. You might have seen this one coming (well, Gilroy had already insisted) unless you were an eternal optimist. It is called, "The Bourne Legacy" after all and we shouldn't have to school-marm you into what that explicitly implies.
