Bourne 5 has delayed its US cinematic release date until 15th of July 2016. Universal have delayed the film’s release as they are unhappy with the current script. The film will be released almost a year later than its original scheduled date of August 14, 2015. Production for the film has not yet begun, and Andrew Baldwin has been asked to amend the original script. It is thought that the added year will give him enough time to create a script to a high standard. Actor Jeremy Renner will return to the Bourne film franchise for the fifth instalment. The film will be directed by Justin Lin.
