    I think both Greengrass and Damon have said there’s nowhere for it to go now. Certainly the main plot has gone, so bringing it back would prolly fall into the trap of just another spy movie. Although it’s not impossible for the studio to hire a different director and wait for Damon to deliver a few turkeys…

  8. Entertaining interview with Grengrass and Damon on yesterday’s Daily Mayo. That passed fifteen minutes.
