George Nolfi has spoken about his desire to work with Matt Damon again, but not on a Bourne film.

Nolfi, who directs Adjustment Bureau which is out soon, met Matt when he wrote the script for Oceans 12, which Matt starred in, and went on to co-write the third Bourne film, Bourne Ultimatum.

George said, “I don’t know exactly what I want to direct next, I’ve written a couple of things, I’d love to work with Matt again and there’s four or five other people out there who I would be privileged to work with as well.”

Asked about doing another Bourne movie, he replied, “That’s not my realm. I want to do original stuff that I’ve come up with like this movie.”

George does want Matt to be the hero in his next love story.

He revealed, “I met Matt on Ocean’s Twelve and I thought he’s the perfect guy to be at the centre of this story because it’s got such a fantastical premise to it and I wanted to ground that in the kind of realism and naturalism that Matt is the best at.

“I said I know it would be asking you to do two things that you haven’t really done hardly ever, which is to act in a movie with this very supernatural premise to it and to carry that love story. He thought that was a great challenge.”
