“Yeah, it’s still moving. We have our director who’s actually run off to do the True Detective series right now, and then while that’s happening they’re finishing writing the script. I know Greengrass and Damon… well, I’ve heard have maybe cracked an idea, a reason to continue the Bourne series, which is fantastic,” he explained to Movie Pilot.

“They have created a very exciting universe, and hopefully in my mind I’d love for us to do something together. If not on the next one, sometime very soon. I think that would be really great. I know I want it. I feel like the fans want it as well.”

Fans would be excited to hear that manifest in reality.

“I think you pit them against each other, and then they go together against the bad guy. We realize that we’re not the enemy. I mean, I think a thousand people can come up with that scenario, but I think you do both. I think that could be really interesting. Mind you, there have been NO talks, whatsoever, creatively about that. So that’s just the fanboy in me, I suppose. [Laughs.),” in the interview.

While all of that sounds crazy, producer Frank Marshall hinted that two projects are in the works.
