Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon are bringing back superspy Jason Bourne to the big screen. After a quick detour with Jeremy Renner in the driver’s seat, Damon is all set to take the reins once again.
Principal shooting just started last week, but already we’ve got an official image from the set. Producer Frank Marshall tweeted the following picture of a beat-up looking Damon with he following text:
First day of principal photography complete and happy to report, BOURNE is back! #Bourne2016
Wow. Jason Bourne is looking a little rough and a whole lot ripped. Like a cross between Fight Club and Snatch, he looks like he’s ready to do some backyard brawling.
While details are few and far between, Damon did drop some hints not too long ago that this installment would see how spies are handling things in a post-Snowden world – that being a world where classified information is readily available at the click of a mouse and no secret is really safe for long.
The film, which also stars Julia Stiles, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander and Vincent Cassel, is set to hit theaters July, 29, 2016.
