Matt Damon Has Had Enough of "Bourne"



Matt Damon has stated that "The Bourne Ultimatum" will be the last time he plays for the "Bourne" franchise.

Looks like success and fame do not lure Matt Damon to stay any longer in the "Bourne" franchise. Despite all the huge cash and exposure received, the actor shockingly revealed to the press in Cannes yesterday, May 24, that the upcoming "The Bourne Ultimatum" will mark his last time playing the titular character.

"The 'Bourne' thing I'm definitely done with," so the hunk stated as he sat in a news conference with his fellow cast members of "Ocean's Thirteen", which encountered its world premiere that day at the 60th annual Cannes Film Festival.

Damon, who won Oscar back in 1998 for his writing work in "Good Will Hunting", further added that regardless of his departure, the Bourne character might well live on through another actor, much like the James Bond series.

Based on Robert Ludlum's books series, "Bourne" franchise so far has spawned three installments, the latest being "Ultimatum" which will open on August 3 this year under Universal Pictures banner. From the previous two, the franchise has already scored a fantastic worldwide income of over $500 million.
