Admit it. We were all pumped last year when we found out that Jeremy Renner was going to stick to “avenging” and that Matt Damon was set to return as the lead in the next Bourne film. But after seeing Damon back in action last night, our excitement has reached a whole new level!
Bourne 5 producer Frank Marshall tweeted out the very first photo of Damon as Jason Bourne on the set of the upcoming flick yesterday evening, and he looks awesome!

Apparently Jason has been hitting the gym a little since we last saw him eight years ago. Seriously, he looks jacked!
The last time Damon played Jason Bourne was in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. He was replaced by Jeremy Renner (who played the lead Aaron Cross) in 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, but it just didn’t feel the same.
The new Bourne flick, which is currently untitled, is set to hit theatres on July 29th, 2016. Julia Stiles will be returning to the franchise as well.
We can’t wait!
