Jason Bourne

Posted on Apr 14, 2016

 

Over a decade ago Doug Liman directed The Bourne Identity, the 2002 film that kicked off the Bourne of action spy thriller series based on the story of Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), a CIA assassin suffering from extreme memory loss. As Matt Damon said in a 2007 interview, “so much of what makes [Jason Bourne] interesting is that internal struggle that was happening for him. Am I a good guy? Am I a bad guy? Why am I remembering these disturbing images?”

In Jason Bourne, the fifth film in the series, Bourne has figured it out. “I know who I am,” he says, “I remember everything.” But remembering everything is different from knowing everything, and Bourne has resurfaced at a time when the world is essentially at war. Things may not be as they seem, and with unprecedented instability swirling all around him, things may change very quickly.

For Jason Bourne, Matt Damon is joined by Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, and Tommy Lee Jones; Julie Stiles reprises her role as Nicky Parsons. Jason Bourne was directed by Paul Greengrass from a screenplay by Greengrass, Matt Damon and Christopher Rouse, based on characters created by author Robert Ludlum. Jason Bourne is scheduled to be released into theaters by Universal Pictures on July 29, 2016.
