As it is the characteristic of great wits to say much in few words, so small wits seem to have the gift of speaking much and saying nothing.

While David Strathairn, Joan Allen, and Edward Norton's characters are still living when we last see them, they are never spoken of, or referenced.
  • In addition to reprising his role as Jason Bourne, Matt Damon also served as a producer and worked on the basic storyline with Paul Greengrass and Christopher Rouse. However, he was unable to actively contribute to the screenplay due to other acting commitments.
  • Alicia Vikander was offered the role of Heather at the same time as being offered the role of Sofia in Assassin's Creed (2016). She took the former, due to fan factor - she admitted she is a fan of the series - while the role of Sofia was taken by Marion Cotillard.

  • Jason Bourne doesn't speak until twenty minutes in the film.
  • At the film's release Matt Damon said that there is not yet another Bourne film in development. He did not rule out starring in a fifth Bourne picture, but did point out his age was a concern and that it is inevitable the series will be rebooted at some point with another Bourne actor. Finally, Damon stated that permission to have any Bourne incarnation die in the movies has to come from the Robert Ludlum estate, permission he didn't expect to be granted.
