Daily Recap: 'Bourne' Producer Wants Damon, Renner to Co-Star in Next Film; Superman, Batman in the Same Movie?

Holy Bourne overload! Producer Frank Marshall says his dream is to have both Jeremy Renner and Matt Damon star in the next Bourne film. In an interview, Marshall said "What if there's a much larger story? What if Treadstone wasn't the only black-ops program? I had never spent one moment thinking about how to do a sequel to Bourne Ultimatum. I first came in for two weeks just to spitball. I have a very random idea… so we started with that and it got more and more exciting. All of a sudden I was staring at something that had a great deal of resonance and was soulful and uncynical and was also gonna kick ass. So that was good." [Empire]
