Bourne Legacy

According to Variety /23.02.2008/, Universal Studios announced that 4th Jason Bourne movie will be made.

"Shmuger and Linde landed Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon for a fourth "Bourne" movie, even though the director and star seemed ready to wrap it up after three pics."

What do you think, guys?

Bad idea. On everyones behalf.

Even Matt Damon said when asked by John Stewart...

"Will there be a 4th one?"

"Yea... we can call it the Bourne Redundancy."

I'd prefer they keep it as a trilogy. Unless they do it years from now having an older Bourne get pulled into something as an older guy. Kind of like Indy, Rambo and John McClane as of recently. I definitely don't think they should do one now. I'd still go see it either way. I really enjoyed all three, and if they make this one, I hope it's just as good.

I love the Bourne movies, but man... they need to wait a bit! I agree, hold off for several years and then do a 4th film!

If I'm to pick a guess, this one will put Bourne's dual identity issue into the spotlight. In the Ludlum novels, Bourne is a bit sicker bunny than displayed in the movies as he is technically carrying two personalities with him. It's also the only thing I can think of to convince Damon back aboard as it'll present him a new intriguing challenge as an actor.

UltimateManGod and the deckards pretty much summed up my feelings on the matter.

http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=22138 Looks like Bourne 4 isn't so much of a sure thing as of yet. And that is for the better, in my opinion, which is already on this thread.

If they make it as good as the others and w/ the same intentions (great action scenes, but always keeping the character in mind), I'm all for!

I wonder if Paul Greengrass will direct again? South America sounds interesting, but hopefully he'll travel more then just there.

Also, I wonder if they'll elaborate on his relationship with Nicky Parsons?

He will... I believe that was announced a while back.

It'll be interesting to see how BOURNE IV distinguishes itself in location from the South American-set Bond flick, QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

Probably so, which is one area I'm not too keen on. Don't like Julia Stiles much.

I'm glad to hear Greengrass will be back, but I wouldn't mind Liman making a return as well!

I suppose they do need to get out of Europe for a bit, since all of the first 3 films are mainly set there. Brazil would be a fantastic place for a footchase as recently seen in The Incredible Hulk. Asia also would be a great location for Bourne, with Hong Kong, Tokyo, or Thailand ripe for the picking. These would all be excellent exotic settings that mix modern with the old. Not to mention the undercurrent of international organized crime is rampant in all these countries, so I'm sure there'd be plenty of stories to tap into!

Julia Stiles doesn't bother me that much, but I'm not crazy about her either. I would be okay if they mentioned her and left it at that. Or have him meet up with her at the end, but I don't know about her tagging along for the whole film!

Plans to make the franchise a quadrilogy seemed hazy, but are now picking up pace, with the instatement of The Bourne Ultimatum co-writer George Nolfi to pen another outing for the character.

Although based on the original concept from the Robert Ludlum books, the fourth instalment will follow an original story.

Universal has made a deal with the estate of the late Robert Ludlum, creator of Jason Bourne, to secure all film rights to the Bourne character and novels and bags first dibs on other Ludlum characters.

So what, we hear you cry. Well, this leaves the way open for a continuing franchise, in the style of James Bond, with new stories being created around the character as the films go on. A fourth instalment in the franchise is already underway, with director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon already returning, and George Nolfi currently working on the script for a 2010 release.

Q: Would you want to do a straight adaptation from one of the novels?

Marshall: Actually, there is. "The Parsifal Mosaic" is one that we like.

Quote:
"The Parsifal Mosiac," not a "Bourne" adventure as a novel, deals with a U.S. spy who falls in love with another spy who is revealed to be a double agent just before her death. When he retires from the business, though, the spy learns that she may still be alive and sets out to learn the truth.

Whatever they do, as long as it's as good as Ultimatum I'll be happy.

Not "The Parsifal Mosaic"...?

The Parsifal Mosaic Not the Fourth Bourne?
Source: Variety February 12, 2009


In an interview with producer Frank Marshall last December, Marshall said that they were eyeing Robert Ludlum's "The Parsifal Mosaic" as the story for the fourth "Bourne" movie. Now, however, Variety says the fourth film and "Parsifal Mosaic" will be two separate films.

Universal is negotiating for screen rights to "Mosaic," an espionage thriller that shapes up as the first major project for Captivate Entertainment, the company that controls screen rights to Ludlum novels.

Universal is working on a fourth "Bourne" film for Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass based on an original idea, and Universal and Strike Entertainment are preparing an adaptation of Ludlum's "The Sigma Protocol."

"The Parsifal Mosaic" revolves around a U.S. intelligence agent who thinks he witnesses the of his lover, who was identified as a KGB double agent.

He retires, but sees her alive at a train station and attempts to find her and unravel a conspiracy. Soon, the agents become involved in an effort to track down Parsifal, a shadowy figure behind a blackmail scheme.

Universal is expected to put the film on a fast track.

Matt Damon has dismissed James Bond as being stuck in the past.

Disgusting

Bond is timeless, Bourne is simply 'flavour of the week'.

In 20 years time no-one will remember Bourne.
