Matt Damon talks "post-Snowden world" set Bourne 5

Plot details have been scarce ever since BOURNE 5 was announced, but while promoting his new movie THE MARTIAN, star Matt Damon shed some light on the upcoming film. Damon tells Buzzfeed he feels that the previous films were about the George W. Bush presidency, and that the next entry is set in the wake of the Edward Snowden revelations. Snowden, as most of you probably already know, is the former CIA employee and government contractor who leaked classified NSA information in 2013.

We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change...Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy.

Jason Bourne will once again be jumping around the globe in BOURNE 5, and Damon says his character will be visiting Greece and Las Vegas. What do you think Bourne will be up to in the fifth installment of the franchise?

“We’re starting in Greece, you know, the beginning of democracy,” he said — also a nod to the country’s current financial crisis that is plaguing the greater European economy. “And the movie ends in Las Vegas, the most grotesque incarnation of….” Damon trailed off with a laugh, content to let others fill in whichever institution they’d most prefer to see Jason Bourne dismantle with just his quick wits and fleet fists.

Matt Damon's THE MARTIAN opens on October 2, 2105, while production on BOURNE 5, which also stars Julia Stiles, Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander, is expected to begin next week for its July 29, 2016 release.

There is nothing funnier.....

Than Matt Damon trying to speak intellectually about ideology, politics, or pretty much any subject above a 4th grade level. Anyone cheering for a 5th bad spy movie about an epileptic amnesiac with a shaky-cam fetish is an idiot.

Bush left office in 2008

Few things are more pathetic than a Collective drone still But-Bushing 7 years after the guy left office.

Incidentally, austerity works. [link]

Although, we shouldn't expect someone who belongs to the 1% to understand that ends have to be met when working with a budget.

And it's easy to have quick wits when writers spend weeks and months thinking them up for you.

Hey, at least it's not Bourne In Space

Most movies that reach entry #5 are so out of ideas they force characters into space.

I'm still against the idea of even having a "Bourne 5" movie (The Bourne Ultimatum wrapped up the trilogy so perfectly), but this already sounds like it's had more thought and effort put into it than the Renner "side-quel" ever did.

I wonder if we'd see Matt Damon tags team with Jeremy Renner for a Bourne movie.

I'm not sure how any of that makes him a hypocrite. Has he ever said that movies shouldn't address political issues?

Uh, do you actually think that Matt Damon, an actor that simply goes by what the script says, is the one who puts political undertones in his movies? And not, you know, the director or the writers? And even IF that were the case, how does that possibly make Damon a hypocrite?

Matt Damon's deeply ignorant politics is one of the many things that make him so unenjoyable to watch.

He's a hypocrite because he's a rich moron who comments on things he doesn't understand while he happily tells you to live your life in a lesser way than him.

Seriously, how stupid do you have to be to not understand that?

Des1, Despite all of your words, I'm still not sure how his comments here make him a hypocrite. Are you using a different definition of the word?

Fists of fire, What is "holly carp?" Is that a new christmas tradition I'm unaware of?

His comment here isn't hypocritical (that I've seen), but he's a hypocrite in pretty much every interview with him I've seen. He's also a liar. In his fracking propaganda film, he lied to farmers whose land they used, claiming the film would be very different from the way it turned out. What he did was completely anti-science, but I'm not sure if it's because he doesn't care about science, or is just too stupid to understand it.
