Actor Matt Damon told CNBC Tuesday he'd like to be "Bourne" again—saying he hopes to reprise the Jason Bourne character in a fifth installment of the popular movie franchise.
"I've wanted to do it for years. We're trying to figure out a story right now," Damon said on "Squawk Box" from the Clinton Global Initiative conference in New York.
Damon starred in the first three "Bourne" movies. "The Bourne Identity," released in 2002, made $214 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo. "The Bourne Supremacy," out two years later, made nearly $289 million, while "The Bourne Ultimatum" in 2007 pulled in almost $443 million worldwide.
After he left the franchise, it rebooted with actor Jeremy Renner as genetically enhanced CIA agent Aaron Cross in "The Bourne Legacy," which was released in 2012 and made $276 million worldwide.
