Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Adaptive Studios And HBO Present The Project Greenlight Season 4 Winning Film "The Leisure Class"Matt Damon will once again suit up as spy Jason Bourne for another flick about the character, and now, he's spilling some secrets about the film's plot, too.

Of course, Damon didn't get into any specifics in an interview with the New York Daily News, but the actor did reveal some of the motivations behind his character's actions -- and the flick's plot -- that fuel this new movie.

"[Bourne] has his memory back, but that doesn't mean he knows everything," Damon told NYDN. "It's 12 years since Jason Bourne has been on the grid. So we have to answer the questions, Where's he been? What's he doing? What gets him going again? So once we solved all that, then we had a movie."

It's all pretty vague, and not much to go on, but still, it's exciting to hear Damon talk about the franchise again, after stepping down from the series to make way for Jeremy Renner's "The Bourne Legacy" in 2012. One concrete detail Damon dropped, however, is that the flick will focus on the fallout of a "post-Snowden" society, so we expect data mining, government surveillance, and personal privacy concerns to all play some part in the new "Bourne"'s plot.

The as-yet-untitled fifth "Bourne" flick is due out on July 29, 2016.
