Matt Damon and Alicia Vikander, 27, were in Sydney over the weekend for the Australian premiere of Jason Bourne, the fifth film in the action blockbuster franchise. Walking the red carpet, Matt revealed that he’s a big fan of Australia and would be love to make the next installment here!

The 45-year-old actor admitted that his Oscar-nominated movie The Martian came close to being filmed Down Under.

‘We were going to shoot The Martian here but we couldn’t get the rebate. We were too late to get the deal so we shot in Budapest,’ he shares. ‘But I was looking at rentals on Bondi Beach, so I was close, but maybe next time.’

‘[Bourne] goes everywhere. I never thought that he would end up in Las Vegas but he does in this one, so I definitely wouldn’t rule out Australia,’ he adds.

Bourne in Bondi – that’s a movie we’d watch!
