Lin, who left "Fast and Furious 7" to "Insidious" helmer James Wan, follows in the footsteps of Tony Gilroy (2012's "The Bourne Legacy"), Paul Greengrass (2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum", 2004's "The Bourne Supremacy"), and Doug Liman (2002's "The Bourne Identity").
Supported by Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton, the last "Bourne" film has so far collected an estimated $276 million. An "untitled new Bourne movie" is scheduled for summer 2015.
