Matt Damon Not Starring in "Bourne Legacy"

From our "Huh? How Can That Be?" Files: Director Tony Gilroy has said that he'll write and direct Bourne Legacy, the fourth Jason Bourne film, but that Matt Damon, who has played the titular character since the franchise launched, will not be featured in the film. Huh? That one leaves us scratching our heads, too! WTF?
"The easiest way to think of it is an expansion or a reveal," Gilroy was quoted as saying. "Jason Bourne will not be in this film, but he's very much alive. What happened in the first three films is the trigger for what happens. I'm building a legend and an environment and a wider conspiracy…the world we're making enhances and advances and invites Jason Bourne's return [down the road]."
Confused? It's okay. We are, too.
How do you have a Jason Bourne flick sans Matt Damon as Jason Bourne? Are you a fan of the Jason Bourne character and franchise?
