LOS ANGELES: Actor Matt Damon, who is promoting his latest film "Jason Bourne", is planning to take a break from the industry following a hectic year.

He wants to take a year off from acting, reports aceshowbiz.com. 

"I took a bunch of roles in a row. I have done four straight movies in a row and I have one more to go," Damon said on the "Today" show. 

The father of four mentioned how he "dragged" his family "all over the world" for his movie shoots. 

"They are really good sports. They are great travellers. But I'm excited to finish out this year of work and take a year off and be at their behest for once," he said,.

"Jason Bourne" is expected to debut high on box office this weekend. He will next release "The Great Wall", which was recently criticised for "Hollywood white-washing". His other film, "Downsizing", is still in production.
