    Matt Damon Open To 'Bourne 5,' But If 'Legacy' Is A Hit, He Expects The Franchise To Move On Without Him

    Poor Matt Damon's got to be somewhat sick of answering questions about the Jason Bourne series, a franchise he's ostensibly not in any more. Or at least, not for now. In case you're living under a rock, Damon and Paul Greengrass walked away from a "Bourne 4" in late 2009 for several reasons, but one...

    'Bourne' Helmer Paul Greengrass To Direct Sports Documentary On F.C. Barcelona

    Despite being the world's favorite sport, and gaining increasing traction in the U.S., the number of great films about soccer (or football, as those of us in the rest of the world accurately call it), can be counted on the fingers of no hands. From John Huston's "Escape To Victory" to the would-be-b...

    Now and Then: 'Haywire,' 'Bourne' Trilogy Prove That Style Is Substance

    Steven Soderbergh is a tough guy to peg. He made his name with a densely talkative indie about orgasms ("sex, lies, and videotape"), and in 22 films since has tackled everything from classy capers ("Out of Sight, the "Ocean's" trilogy) to the biopic of an iconic revolutionary ("Che"). But one thing ...

    Discuss: Does Universal Need Matt Damon & Paul Greengrass To Return For 'Bourne'?

    So far in 2012, Universal has been flexing their box office muscle hard thanks to the success of a couple of no frills action vehicles. Mark Wahlberg's midbudgeted ($25 million not including P&A) "Contraband" is already over $70 million worldwide (most of that from the domestic box...

    'Man On A Ledge' Star Anthony Mackie Was "Excited Beyond Belief" To Play Jimi Hendrix In Paul Greengrass' Aborted Biopic

    Seeing the name Anthony Mackie in the opening credits is fast becoming a reassuring sign. Not necessarily of the quality of a movie -- we can't say we adored "Real Steel" or "What's Your Number," exactly -- but an indication that at least one good performance will take place over the course of the r...

    Matt Damon's Loyalty To Paul Greengrass & Friction With Tony Gilroy May Prevent Another Movie For Jason Bourne

    It's pretty rare for nice guy Matt Damon to stick the knife in anyone, but when he spoke to GQ recently, his candid remarks about screenwriter, and longtime Bourne series scribe Tony Gilroy, made their way around the world. Calling Gilroy's draft for "The Bourne Ultimatum" a "career-ender" and "read...

    Paul Greengrass & Tom Hanks' Pirate Movie 'Captain Phillips' Sails Into Theaters On March 22, 2013

    So, we guess it's happening then. First announced over the summer under its earlier title "Maersk Alabama" with Paul Greengrass to direct and Tom Hanks to star, not much was heard since and we began to wonder if it was yet another project stuck in development for the director. But nope...

    Paul Greengrass' 'Memphis' Finding New Life? Icon U.K. Group In Talks To Finance The Movie

    While Paul Greengrass has spent the year circling a number of films to mark his follow-up to "Green Zone," it's "Memphis" that remains the project that got away. This spring, Universal yanked the plug on the director's Martin Luther King Jr. project that was gearing up to...

    Paul Greengrass To Executive Produce, Possibly Direct Pilot Of Fox CIA Drama

    Try as he might, the next film for Paul Greengrass is proving elusive to get started. He was looking to direct his Martin Luther King Jr. flick "Selma" but unfortunately Universal put the brakes on that after the civil rights leader's estate expressed concern about some of the not so n...
