Universal Pictures has pushed back the next untitled “Bourne” pic from Aug. 14, 2015 to July 15, 2016.
Jeremy Renner is set to return with Justin Lin directing.
Frank Marshall once again produces, alongside Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith for Captivate Entertainment. Lin will also produce for his Perfect Storm Entertainment.
Since the studio only recently set Andrew Baldwin to pen the script to the next and a production date had not been set for the film, it makes sense that Universal pushed the release to give more time to finish the script.
The last installment, “The Bourne Legacy,” grossed more than $275 million worldwide.
In it’s place, Universal has dated the N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” for Aug. 14, 2015, announcing that newcomers O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell will play group members Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E in F. Gary Gray film.
