Could Matt Join Jeremy In “Bourne 5”?

We all know that, during the Great Jeremy Renner Harvest of 2010, Universal hired the soulful star of “Hurt Locker” and “28 Weeks Later” to replace Matt Damon as the face of the Bourne franchise. We also know that Renner is playing an entirely new character — Aaron Cross — and that, based on the most recent trailer, “Bourne Legacy” appears to take place at roughly the same time as “The Bourne Ultimatum,” which makes it not so much a “sequel” as a “paraquel,” in the parlance of fantasy fiction. But the producer of “Legacy” tells Empire that the door is very much open for a return trip from Damon. Says Frank Marshall, “You see there are several different programs in [Legacy] with different skill sets. All possibilities are open. My dream is that in the next one we see Matt and Jeremy team up.”
