No More Bourne for Matt Damon


Matt Damon told the press today in Cannes that The Bourne Ultimatum will be his last time to play Jason Bourne, despite the franchise earning hundreds of millions of dollars around the world.

“The ‘Bourne’ thing I’m definitely done with,” Damon said, as he sat in a news conference with co-stars from Ocean’s Thirteen, which was being shown at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Oscar-winner added, though, that the Bourne character may well live on, played by another actor, much like the James Bond series.

The Bourne Ultimatum opens in theaters on August 3.
