Bourne 5 pushed back a year

The follow-up to The Bourne Legacy has been pushed back from 2015 to 2016.

Studios are in the midst of jiggling their schedules at the moment, it seems, and Universal Pictures is no different. It's announced that it's pushing back the release of the fifth Bourne movie from August 2015 to July 15th 2016.

Moving the film into a prime July slot might just be a vote of confidence for the project, mind. The film is set to be the second in the series to focus on the character of Aaron Cross, as played by Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy. We'd be amazed if Matt Damon reprised the role of Jason Bourne in the film. Hopefully, then, they won't bang on about him so much this time around.

Justin Lin is earmarked to direct the film, and the new date puts it head to head with Fox's Ice Age 5. The battle of the, er, fivequels then. We just made up a bad word....
