Bourne filmmakers reveal name of new movie

The latest Bourne movie will be called 'Jason Bourne'.

The first trailer for Matt Damon's return as the super spy aired during Sunday's Super Bowl and revealed the title, which has been kept secret until now.

'Jason Bourne' is the fifth movie in the franchise, but Matt's fourth outing as the titular hero, after he and director Paul Greengrass opted not to take part in 2012's 'The Bourne Legacy', starring Jeremy Renner.

It has been nine years since Matt last played Bourne, in 2007 movie 'The Bourne Ultimatum'.

Julia Stiles will reprise her role as Nicky Parsons in the movie while Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones and Vincent Cassel will all make their debuts in the franchise.

'Jason Bourne' will be released on July 29.
