While no casting details have been revealed yet, Deadline noted in their initial report that actor Matt Damon, who appeared in four of the five movies, would be approached first to star in the new film.

The last film to be released in the franchise was in 2016, meaning it will likely be almost a decade between the last movie and the next instalment if it is given the green light to go ahead. The first film, which released in 2002, is a cult classic amongst action fans.
