The next BOURNE film is a long time in the making. After the disappointment that was 2012’s THE BOURNE LEGACY, the studios knew they’d have to bring things back to Jason Bourne himself if they wanted to continue the franchise. So they did just that.

They locked down BOURN SUPREMACY and BOURNE ULTIMATUM director Paul Greengrass, as well as the series star Matt Damon. In addition, a good portion of the film is already in the can, as principal photography began last September. With its release date of July fast-approaching, the only thing fans are wondering is: where is the first trailer?

Sure, there’s still half a year until the movie is set to hit theaters, but that’s never stopped the hungry fans from asking. Luckily, author Eric Van Lustbader–who continues thelegacy of Robert Ludlum with his own BOURNE books–has our backs, and took to Facebook to tell us when we could expect to see Jason Bourne in action.

Here’s what the writer had to say:

“BREAKING NEWS! The first trailer for the new Bourne film will be shown during this year’s Superbowl telecast. At that time I believe you’ll find out the title of the film. (I know it, but I’m sworn to secrecy). So tune in on February 7th to check out all the excitement. I, for one, can’t wait!!!”

The post has since been taken down, so chances are the author spoke out of turn. Either way, if this is true, we only have a short time until we get our first look at the upcoming film, as well as the title.

In addition to Matt Damon, this currently-untitled BOURNE flick stars Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, and Vincent Cassel.

BOURNE 5 hits theaters on July 29, 2016.
