The “Bourne” franchise’s sideways sequel is going to be getting its own sequel.
Universal Pictures has been rolling out big announcements at CinemaCon, but the one that’s got us most intrigued is that a “The Bourne Legacy 2” is in the works. The fate of that movie seemed uncertain since “The Bourne Legacy” performed just average in the box office, and did the worst of all four “Bourne” films. But Universal claims it is “actively working” on a second “Bourne Legacy” film, even though the studio didn’t get any more specific than that.
For those of you hoping for a “Bourne” storyline crossover, we have some bad news for you, because Matt Damon probably won’t be in this movie. The former “Bourne” actor has said repeatedly that he won’t do another movie in the franchise without “Bourne Supremacy” and “Bourne Ultimatum” director Paul Greengrass, and also has been increasingly hesitant about the direction the series is going. It seems likely that the next “Bourne Legacy” movie will just star Jeremy Renner, with a potential Renner-Damon team-up happening farther down the road.
“The Bourne Legacy 2” wasn’t the only big sequel Universal announced. The studio also confirmed that “Fast & Furious 7” will come out in 2014 and “Snow White and the Huntsman 2” and “Pitch Perfect 2” will hit theaters in 2015. Yes, we’re pretty excited about those too.
