This city is covered with important documents about our nation’s past and current state, most of which are under lock and key, but a vital document was left on a sidewalk bench this morning.

Directly in front of the Newseum, one block from the National Mall, is a plain bench that had a stack of stapled papers on it this morning. In giant bold letters is the following: “BOURNE 5.”

Who cares about the Declaration of Independence when you have, in your hands, visual proof that Matt Damon has returned as Jason Bourne to figure out even more of his past, or to cash another giant check?

Jason Bourne is back, which will give me the chance to randomly scream aloud at both strangers and friends, “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO I AM!” Or, my personal favorite, “WHO ARE YOU WORKING FOR?!”

Someone among the crew must have accidentally left a stack of the 5-page crew call sheets on a bench this morning, which I was only too happy to enjoy. “Bourne 5” appears to be currently on day 57 of a 78-shoot film, and Langley, Virginia will serve as a backdrop for some of the film.

The last time we saw Jason Bourne he had escaped a shooting atop a New York City building, and had not been located by federal agents that want to trap him because “he knows too much!” It turns out he went to Washington D.C. to take in some of the sights.

This time it would appear he will be battling native Texan Tommy Lee Jones in the latest installment of this fantastic franchise. At least that’s whose name is on this call sheet. From reading the scene descriptions, bet good money Tommy Lee Jones is a government agent that has Bourne pinned down in D.C., until our favorite forgetful ex-govt. assassin escapes, possibly via Uber.

It smells like a serious double cross that Bourne has sniffed out, too. Where is Pam Landy when you need her? For a guy that remembers so little he knows an impressive amount.

That’s all I could really gather from this call sheet, that and Bourne’s latest foreign love fling is someone named Alicia Vikander. That and the top tier talent on set stay in rat trap hotels - rhymes with Mitz Barlton.

From reading various reports about the latest Bourne, No. 5 will be released in late July of 2016.

Can’t. Wait.
