London: Matt Damon has reportedly turned down multi-million pound offers to play super-spy Jason Bourne in a fourth movie.

Studio bosses have given the green light to a new action thriller called The Bourne Legacy.

"This is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel. No one’s replacing Matt Damon," a news daily quoted Tony Gilroy, the movie’s director as saying.

"There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter. This is a stand-alone project," Gilroy added.
