HOLLYWOOD – The new Bourne trailer dropped during the Super Bowl and it suggested that the secret agent with amnesia is rebuilding his life successfully.
One of the high points of the advertising campaign that surrounds Super Bowl 50 was the dropping of the new Bourne Trailer, featuring Matt Damon. Although short in length, the trailer showed that Bourne 6 will be taking a totally new direction. In the trailer he seems to have a family and has somehow managed to buy himself a zoo.
We spoke EXCLUSIVELY to Matt Damon about the new film:
We felt we had done the spy thing as far as we could do it. So what was next? Paul Greengrass had seen me in We Bought a Zoo and he told me it was his favorite non-Bourne film I’d done. So we got talking about how we could introduce elements of that whimsy into the Bourne universe. It turned out there’s a ‘cut and paste’ feature on Final Draft so it wasn’t anywhere near as difficult as I thought it would be.
So you’re basically making Bourne 6 as We Bought a Zoo 2?
That’s right. Scarlett Johansson is coming back and the kids and there’s going to be a lot less violence and a lot more gooey sentimentality.
