Fifth Bourne Film Set For August 2015 Release
Year apparently still not quite crowded enough

03 December 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Wrap

Just when you thought 2015 couldn't get even more crammed, the studios surprise us all by adding another film to the teetering crowd stuck on top of the box-office Buckaroo that is the year’s release slate. You can now count the fifth Bourne movie among those vying for your attention and your hard-earned currency at the cinema.

August 14 is the day when, in the States at least, audiences will see how a new team takes on the franchise, with Fast & Furious veteran director Justin Lin calling the shots and Sherlock Holmes writer Anthony Peckham on script duty. According to the most recent reports, Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross is still the focus for this adventure, so it’ll likely follow on from The Bourne Legacy’s reveal of another super-spy program and the fallout after Cross goes up against those trying to wipe him out.

One other release of note (though one not elbowing its way into the busy 2015 calendar) is Luc Besson’s latest, the Scarlett Johansson-starring Lucy, set to arrive on August 8 next year. The film finds Johansson as an unwitting drug mule who becomes a powerhouse fighter when one of the designer narcotics she's carrying leaks into her system, leaving her able to suppress pain and avoid emotion, while starting a ticking clock that's killing her. At least she won't have to battle for attention during cinema-geddon the following year...
