‘Bourne 5’ centers on financial collapse, recession, cyberwarfare, first pic

Matt Damon’s next Bourne movie, his return to the franchise after it took a different direction in a 2012 spin-off, still doesn’t have a title and few details are known.

In addition to a pic from Entertainment Weekly‘s 2016 preview issue Damon did at least give a few hints to what we’ll see in the new film.

Paul Greengrass also returns to direct the film.

“We find [Bourne] in a dark and tortured place” is the only clue he’d give to the character. The story so far has been kept largely under wraps, though Alicia Vikander’s role as a cyberspecialist and Damon’s earlier hint means they’ll probably be taking a very different look at terrorism this time around.

Tommy Lee Jones joins the action as an “old school CIA agent” and Julia Stiles reprises her role as Nicky from the previous Bourne films.

Damon previously talked about the action, filming in different cities all over the globe as the action resume 12 years after his last Bourne film.

“We were in Tenerife, which is supposed to be Athens. It would be like a nighttime riot scene to kind of start the movie. And then England, Berlin a little bit for about a week, and a little bit in D.C. Then we’re going to Vegas for the third act… Big car chase on the strip.”

Vincent Cassel and Ato Essandoh also have been cast in roles.

The Untitled Bourne Movie arrives in theaters July 29, 2016.
