Julia Stiles to rejoin Matt Damon in Paul Greengrass' next Bourne film

06.19.2015

BOURNE 5 is not only going to benefit from the return of director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon but now another familiar face is back in the fold. Deadline reports that Julia Stiles will reprise her role from the first three films as Nicky Parsons in the movie. While this may not be the biggest marquee name out there, it does bring back some consistency with the first movies and the new one.

After taking a hiatus from the series for THE BOURNE LEGACY, Greengrass and Damon are set to continue the popular series with Jason Bourne in the leading role instead of Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross. There is no word on what other characters will come back for the fifth film, but there have been rumors that EX MACHINA star Alicia Vikander is in talks for a lead role in the film. No plot has been revealed although there is no anticipation of crossing over Jason Bourne and Aaron Cross in this movie.

The Bourne films have proven to be box office gold, even when Damon is not in the lead, but much more when he is. This isn't a knock against Renner, but it is the dynamic between Damon and Greengrass that makes the movies work as the second and third films are much better than the Doug Liman-directed THE BOURNE IDENTITY. Here's hoping these guys can recapture the magic at least one more time.

BOURNE 5 is slated to open on July 16, 2016.

These movies have been great! Bourne Legacy wasn't completely terrible, just pointless overall. So I'm glad Damon and Greengrass are coming back for another kick at the can so Bourne Legacy isn't the final installment in this great franchise.

I really like these movies and was hoping Stiles would return. There seemed to be a hint at some previous romance between the two of them before he started his training. She seemed saddened by his lack of memory. They need to have Allen as Landy as well. However, I disagree about the sequels being better with Greengrass, I do very much enjoy them, but Liman's Identity was the best and you could see the fights happen. The fight with the pen and the tracking of Clive Owens character in the

The fight with the pen and the tracking of Clive Owens character in the woods using the cover of smoke and birds was still the best thing they have done in the series.

This so far is easily my most anticipated movie of 2016. I have all the Bourne movies on steelbook... My fave action series.

Wouldn't be surprised if Stiles' character is killed off somehow, which would then have Damon's Bourne come out of hiding and wanting to get revenge against those involved (but this would also be redundant of the storyline of Bourne Supremacy).

Glad to see them teaming up again. Huge fan of the franchise and I hope we eventually do get to see Damon and Renner's characters go at it; either as partners or rivalries.

you mean repetetive. You just basically said the plot of Supremacy is no longer useful. Usefull to what? that makes no sense.

So has Damon learned to pretend fight yet?

Or is the plan just shaking the camera even more this time?

Greengrass is involved?

Oh, OK, so another one of his shaky-cam movies I won't see.
