Matt Damon is halfway through ‘Bourne 5’

Los Angeles: Actor Matt Damon is through with half of the work on his film “Bourne 5”. The 45-year-old “The Martian” star teased fans with few other details about the much awaited movie, reported Aceshowbiz.

“We’re, like, probably about halfway through. We started in September but they’re going dark for most of December and cutting basically the first two acts. And then we have the third act and then whatever we owe from the first two acts.

“We were in Tenerife, which is supposed to be Athens. It would be like a nighttime riot scene to kind of start the movie. And then England, Berlin a little bit for about a week, and a little bit in D.C. Then we’re going to Vegas for the third act… Big car chase on the strip,” Damon said.

The actor also revealed how the new film will be related to 2007’s “The Bourne Ultimatum”. “You’ll find the character – like ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, the third act actually in the movie dovetails with the third act of ‘The Bourne Supremacy’. So technically when the Bourne character disappears, it’s still 2004.

“So when this next one comes out in ’16, it will have been 12 years – in movie years – that the character as been off the grid. So what’s happened in those intervening years
gives you a story,” he said.

“Bourne 5”, helmed by Paul Greengrass, will reunite Damon with co-star Julia Stiles. The cast also includes Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Riz Ahmed, Vincent Cassel and Scott Shepherd. The film will release on July 29, 2016.
