Bored of Bourne?

With the same "three and out" mentality that a lot of actors seem to have in regards to franchises (until they are pelted with weighty paychecks), Matt Damon has publicly declared his lack of interest in continuing the Bourne series beyond the latest.

"The Bourne thing I'm definitely done with," Damon said while pimping another third flick, OCEAN'S 13. This would make sense -- after all, how long would an amnesiac operative be interesting after he regains his memory (the catalyst for events in THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM)?

However, Damon does imply that the character could theoretically continue with other actors in the role of the rogue espionage agent with lousy recall. Maybe he gets konked on the noggin really hard at the end of this one.
Extra Tidbit: There are still other books in the Bourne series, though they are not penned by creator Robert Ludlum.

James Bond aside and maybe in future years Indiana Jones, it really irks me when they change actors in sequels involving the same character and worst yet continuing where the past film left off, I would let it slide if it's not a direct sequel. While Matt Damon is NOT what made the Bourne films cool (Im a fan) its uncomfortable to just look at another face like nothing happened.

Why does the character have to be amnesiac?

Okay, it's a really call plot device for a spy thriller, but surely they could just continue with other stories. Maybe they could hire, um, screenwriters or something. I REALLY dig the character and would enjoy watching him in non-memory related action-thrillers.

Sure, he gets conked hard and wakes up with a new face. Like Steve Rogers and The Pretender combined.

In all seriousness, there's only like four books in the series annyway, so if they did it would really be stupid.
