Lesson of the day: Don’t tell your best friends about any upcoming movies you’re doing.
Gone Girl’s Ben Affleck and his ace-boon Matt Damon walked the red carpet recently to promote their resurrected HBO series Project Greenlight. While the two fielded questions from reporters, Affleck unintentionally spilled the beans that Damon would be reprising his role as Jason Bourne.
“Well, [Damon’s] going to be doing a Bourne movie next fall when I’ve just completely lost any semblance of physical fitness. So….,”
It was at that moment, Damon realized his beloved Bostonian bredrin couldn’t keep a secret and confirmed the news.
“Yes, next year,” Damon responded to E! News when asked for clarification. “It’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. [Director] Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”
The thriller/spy movies began in 2001, where Damon played CIA assassin Jason Bourne who struggled with severe memory loss in The Bourne Identity. Two years later, Damon starred in The Bourne Supremacy and then The Bourne Ultimatum
Well, we here at VIBE are THRILLED Affleck can’t keep his mouth shut and will be waiting patiently to see Matt Damon in the Bourne series.
Thanks Ben, you’re the illest!
