The "Bourne" films further solidified Matt Damon as an action star with range. It also further cemented the amazing partnership that he shared with director Paul Greengrass on the last two films of the franchise. The spin-off film "The Bourne Legacy" starring Jeremy Renner, was met with mixed reviews, which was in no way the fault of Renner as he is always solid. But would a crossover film with both actors' characters do the trick? I think yes.
Damon has been asked in countless interviews if he would ever return to the franchise. His answer is always the same; not without Paul Greengrass at the helm. Now it's been reported that we may see a crossover film in that not too distant future and that the two gents are in negotiations with Universal to make it happen. Please take note that this statement has not been confirmed by the studio at this point, so it's possible it's mere speculation and perhaps just hope.
Damon has also previously stated that now that his character Jason Bourne is aware of his identity, he thinks it would be "a real struggle to extend the franchise". Even if his character and Renner's Aaron Cross had one scene together, I think the mere tip of the hat would be enough to please fans, but maybe that's just me.
Regardless, a fifth Bourne film is on the way with Renner still attached to star. We'll see how this situation unfolds but here's to hoping Damon and potentially Greengrass are also locked as well, in one capacity or another.
