Matt Damon Says New 'Bourne' Inspired by Edward Snowden

The actor opened up about the next 'Bourne' movie out in 2016.

Though his first three movies were hits, the actor told Buzzfeed, "We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change."

So, after Snowden's privacy revelations in recent years, Damon said, “Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. ... There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy.”
