Damon: "I've always been open to it if Paul Greengrass is"

Actor Matt Damon has revealed that he is "open" to reprising his lead role in the Bourne franchise, but only if director Paul Greengrass is directing the project.

The 43-year-old star, who played Jason Bourne in three outings from the action spy series, decided not to sign-up for last year's The Bourne Legacy, which featured Jeremy Renner.

Speaking to U.S. news network Cnbc on Sunday (04May14), Damon insisted that he would make a comeback to the popular movie franchise if Greengrass, who directed The Bourne Supremacy (2004) and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), was helming the project.

He said: "I've always been open to it if Paul Greengrass is the director. We've just never been able to come up with a story."

Damon added: "So if any of your viewers have a story, please call Universal (Studios) and submit it."

Renner will reprise his role as Aaron Cross for a fifth Bourne movie which is tipped for a summer 2015 release (15).
