'Bourne 5' release date confirmed for 2015

Jeremy Renner will return for sequel

'Bourne 5' release date confirmed for 2015

The release date for the fifth film in the Bourne series has been confirmed, according to reports.

Collider says that the latest installment in the spy franchise will open in US cinemas on 14 August 2015, with Jeremy Renner set to reprise his role as agent Aaron Cross. His character was first introduced in 2012's The Bourne Legacy after Matt Damon, star of the first three films, chose not to return as Jason Bourne.

Justin Lin is set to replace Tony Gilroy in the director's chair, while Anthony Peckham (Invictus, Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes) will pen the script. The Bourne Legacy took an impressive $275 million (£180 million) at cinemas worldwide last summer, but failed to match the success of the previous instalment, 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum, which raked in over $440 million (£290 million).

Speaking earlier this year (2013), Damon admitted that he would consider returning to the franchise depending on the script and provided that Paul Greengrass, who helmed the second and third Bourne movies, was back in the director's chair.
