Yes! Cue another round of Moby's "Extreme Ways" 'cause Jason Bourne is back -- and he's bringing an old friend with him. According to Deadline, Matt Damon is not only back as Bourne for his fourth movie (the third with director Paul Greengrass) but Julia Stiles is confirmed to return as Nicky Parsons. They are the only official cast members so far, although Deadline said Alicia Vikander was being sought for a major role and Variety said Viggo Mortensen may or may not play an assassin. Deadline also said -- and we agree -- that they hoped Joan Allen would return as Pam Landy.

The first movie, "The Bourne Identity" came out in 2002, followed by more Damon dominance in 2004's "The Bourne Supremacy." Damon returned again for "The Bourne Ultimatum" in 2007, but then the focus shifted to Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross in "The Bourne Legacy." That one was directed by Tony Gilroy and it only kinda sorta counts because it didn't feature Matt Damon. So this new movie will go back to basics.

Back in November, Matt previewed the new movie to E! News: "It'll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that's all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes."According to Variety, the movie is scheduled to open July 29, 2016.

So far this new project is just being called Universal Pictures' Untitled Next Bourne Chapter, but expect it to end up with a title like "The Bourne Resurgence" or maybe "Bourne Ready," which feels inevitable. Maybe suggest your own title now, while you can?
