bourne identity

Matt Damon's return to the "Bourne" series was much-touted and has been long-awaited, but fans of the franchise are going to have to wait a little bit longer before they can see the titular spy back in action.

The still-untitled sequel has been pushed back two weeks from its original release date. The flick was set to debut on July 15, 2016; now, it will premiere on July 29, 2016.

No reason for the change was announced, though Variety suspects the film wants to avoid competition with the third "Star Trek" flick, which is set to debut the weekend before the new "Bourne"'s original release date. Now, it will also premiere one week ahead of DC's "Suicide Squad."

Paul Greengrass is also returning to the "Bourne" series for the hotly-anticipated flick.
