Anthony Peckham will write the new movie; "Bourne Legacy" director Tony Gilroy is not involved
Universal Pictures is gearing up for another entry in its blockbuster "Bourne" series, setting Anthony Peckham ("Sherlock Holmes") to write the script for a fifth film in the franchise.
Gilroy is not involved with the latest installment, nor is Matt Damon at the moment. While Universal would love for Damon to reprise his signature action role, it'll all depend on who the studio hires to direct.
Based on the series of books by Robert Ludlum, the "Bourne" franchise has been one of Universal's most consistent performers at the box office, as "The Bourne Legacy" grossed $276 million worldwide.
