LOS ANGELES: Actor Matt Damon say one of the main reasons to get back to Bourne franchise were the fans, who wanted to see him reprise the role.

The 45-year-old “The Martian” star will return as the lead character of Jason Bourne for the fourth time.

“People would come up (to me) on the street and ask, ‘Are you guys going to make another one?’

“I’ve been in the movie business long enough to realize what a gift that is. Having an audience that is actually there and really wants to see something is not to be taken lightly,” Damon said.

Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, and Vincent Cassel are some of the big new names on the cast list while Julia Stiles is set to reprise the role of Nicky.

Paul Greengrass is directing the project. The actor-director duo have previously worked together on “Green Zone”.
