Matt Damon Says He's Open to Another Bourne Film

He just has a couple requirements...
Since The Bourne Ultimatum bowed in 2007, Matt Damon has seemed reticent to the idea of reprising the titular character of Jason Bourne. The actor declined to come back for a fourth film after director Paul Greengrass bowed out and instead Universal moved forward with a spin-off in the Jeremy Renner-starring Bourne Legacy. That doesn't mean that Damon isn't willing to come back though; as he told CNBC, he's happy to come back as long as it's with Greengrass and a good story.
Damon told the site, "I've always been open to it if Paul Greengrass is the director. We've just never been able to come up with a story... It felt like such a good way to end it last time. Having said that, I love that character. I'd love to see what happened to him."
There were rumors that Renner's Aaron Cross would be teaming with Damon's Bourne for a fifth entry a while back, but those were quickly shot down. Universal is moving ahead with a fifth film though, and Damon joked that Universal might want to crowdsource in order to find a way to get him back in.
"[I]f any of your viewers have a story," he said, "please call Universal and submit it."
