Bourne 5: 5 Ways It Can Continue The Saga

Published August 28, 2013 by gossipzoo

the bourne legacy

Deadline have just announced plans for a fifth film in the Bourne Franchise. And once again Jeremy Renner will be reprising his role as Aaron Cross from The Bourne Legacy. Personally, I couldn’t be happier. While I enjoyed the original trilogy with Matt Damon, there was something about the fourth film, the first not to feature him, that I found surprisingly good.

I think the decision to open up the back story on where the original title character came from, namely Project Treadstone was an inspired one. If you’re going to lose your leading man, you had better have something meaty to tantalise the audience with. What the fourth film cleverly did was have the ramifications of Jason Bourne’s actions in the third film indirectly leading the actions of Ed Norton’s Eric Byer to take out anyone connected with the black ops projects linked to Treadstone (of which the public has become aware) to protect the government’s secrets.

Immediately The Bourne Legacy felt ‘bigger’. We might have had Jason Bourne travelling the world in search of secrets but it always felt like one man’s story. While we had a new hero, Aaron Cross, we were also introduced to the super soldiers and the scientists involved in their enhancements. Rachel Weisz’s Doctor Marta Shearing also gave us a strong female lead, perhaps lacking from the first three films, a love interest but also a connection to the government projects and ultimately a victim herself. With both characters forced to go on the run, we had more connections as an audience, characters who also came across as more sympathetic.

There’s no news yet on whether Rachel Weisz or Matt Damon may be making a return for Bourne 5, but here’s my thoughts on where the film should go next.

MATT DAMON Kidnaps And Holds JIMMY KIMMEL Hostage (VIDEO)

Published February 4, 2013 by gossipzoo

MATT DAMON has kidnapped and held JIMMY KIMMEL hostage in order to avenge himself after a decade-long fake feud.

LOL!

matt damon kidnaps jimmy kimmel

As a little teaser to Matt Damon‘s much-anticipated full-length guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel‘s show after (fake) feuding with each other for 10 long years, the pair have created a video showing the “Bourne Supremacy” star holding the comedic host hostage to a chair.

And in case you were living under a rock and have no idea how they started “fighting,” the video starts with clips of Kimmel ending his shows by repeatedly apologizing to Damon for “running out of time” for his supposed appearances.

The joke eventually led to years of poking fun at each other with supposedly foul jokes, which sometimes involved their then-girlfriends.

But at long last, Damon gets his revenge… and we have to wait and see what happens next.

Watch as the tables turn in the hilarious clip below:
