The Bourne Legacy is an upcoming American action spy film and the fourth installment in the eponymous Bourne film series, which is based on the Jason Bourne novels created by Robert Ludlum and Eric Van Lustbader. The story sets off after the conclusion of The Bourne Ultimatum with Tony Gilroy as the director, screenwriter of the first three films. Matt Damon and the character Jason Bourne are not in this film, but Damon has not ruled out starring in any future films as long as Paul Greengrass returns as director. The film is named after but is not based on The Bourne Legacy, a Bourne novel written by author Eric Van Lustbader.
The story resumes after the conclusion of The Bourne Ultimatum, as a new cast of characters grapple with the consequences of Jason's actions.
The cast also includes Stacy Keach as Turso, Corey Stoll as Vendel and Oscar Isaac.
On June 9, 2010, it was announced that Tony Gilroy would write The Bourne Legacy and on October 11, 2010 Gilroy was confirmed as the director of the film, and that Jason Bourne would not be in The Bourne Legacy although it retains the name Bourne as to identify it as a continuity to the franchise. The film will not take place in a new canon; it will not be a reboot or prequel in any way, but more likely a side-story or full spinoff with a new character "in the mold of Bourne" dealing with the ramifications of the Treadstone conspiracy.
