Julia Stiles Returns For ‘Bourne 5’ With Matt Damon

Julia Stiles Returns For 'Bourne 5' With Matt Damon

The last time we saw Nicky Parsons was at the very end of “The Bourne Ultimatum.” Operation Blackbriar had been exposed, David Webb’s name was made public but there was just one problem….his body still hadn’t be found. And that news brings a smile to Nicky’s face in the terrific final scene that marked a great close to a trilogy of films. But after much convincing Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon are back in ‘Bourne’ mode, and they’ll have a familiar face to join them in the adventure.

Deadline reports that Julia Stiles will reprise her role as Nicky in “Bourne 5.” Granted, the character wasn’t always given the most interesting things to do, but she’s a key part of Jason Bourne’s story, and Stiles was always solid in her performance. Of course, there are no plot details right now so don’t ask. But unlike the tumultuous productions of past Bourne films, producer Frank Marshall promises a smoother ride this time.

“I would like to avoid that experience…we have spent a long time on the script development and pre-production and that’s all going very well and we’re not gonna have a race to the finish line. It’s going to hopefully be a slow walk this time,” he told Collider.

The Bourne Whatever It’s Going To Be Called” hits theaters on July 29, 2016. Check out the final scene from ‘Ultimatum’ below. Update: Apparently Viggo Mortensen has been offered a villain role, but who knows if he’ll take it.
