Matt Damon has told CNBC he would be "open" to reprising the role of Jason Bourne, although he stipulated that Paul Greengrass would have to also return as director.
Talking to Tania Bryer for CNBC Meets, Damon said that he's "always been open" to another Bourne movie having starred in three films between 2002 and 2007: "The Bourne Identity", "The Bourne Supremacy" and "The Bourne Ultimatum".
Paul Greengrass directed the last two in the trilogy and Damon said he only wanted to work with the "Captain Phillips" director on a possible new Bourne script.
"We've just never been able to come up with a story," Damon said. "So, if any of your viewers have a story, please call Universal and submit it."
"It felt like such a good way to end it the last time, but having said that I love that character…and I'd love to see what happened to him. Because technically, the movie that came out in 2007 dovetailed with the one that came out in 2004, so technically the last time Jason Bourne was seen was 2004."
A fourth Bourne film was released in 2012 starring Jeremy Renner entitled "The Bourne Legacy". However, the character of Jason Bourne did not appear.
According to Box Office Mojo, the three Bourne films that Damon appeared in grossed worldwide just over $1 billion and were all critically well-received.
Having made his name for films such as "Good Will Hunting" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley", it was a bit of a shock for many commentators to see Damon become an action-movie star when he first took on the role of Jason Bourne in 2002.
Damon admitted that he was "paranoid" about making the transition. "I just took all that paranoia and channelled it into…six months of just training and boxing and fire arms training," Damon toldCNBC Meets.
"I had just as many concerns as anybody about doing an action move. In fact, I never signed up for three Bourne movies, I signed up for one, because I didn't even know if I'd like to make an action movie…but it turned out that I loved it."
The full program - CNBC Meets: Matt Damon - will air on CNBCEurope on Wednesday 7 May.
