Actor Matt Damon is searching for the perfect storyline that would allow him to return as Jason Bourne in the action franchise.

The 42-year-old admits he has approached screenwriter Jonah Nolan to brainstorm ideas for a new storyline helmed by original director Paul Greengrass, reports

If things go well, this will enable his alter ego Jason Bourne to return to the franchise after this year's spin-off The Bourne Legacy.

He told, "We just don't have a story, and we haven't had one. I quietly went to Jonah Nolan, because he and his brother Chris did such a brilliant job on Batman and that whole mythology. I just said, 'Can you put your brain on this? I can't figure it out.'

"And he took a run at it and he couldn't crack it either. Paul and I have been talking about it for years. And we can't quite see what the movie would be. If we could get line of sight on that...," he added.
