Bourne heads south?

06.26.2008

Earlier this year we told you that Universal was successful in convincing director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon to return for a fourth BOURNE movie. We haven't heard much since then but IESB.net caught up with producer Frank Marshall at the Saturn Awards who dished on the upcoming installment. He says that the current plan is to begin shooting next summer for a 2010 release. As for where the film might be going, Marshall said that while a fourth Jason Bourne book was written, it wasn't written by Robert Ludlum so they'll probably come up with their own original concept. They're still working on that concept now but Marshall teased that Bourne will be headed to South America for his next adventures. Bourne takes on Colombian drug lords? Bourne takes on the hot asses of Rio? Bourne takes on... OK, I'll stop. To watch the full interview with Frank Marshall, ">click here to head to IESB.

Extra Tidbit: Are they sure they don't want to wait 20 years for the fourth film where they can introduce Bourne's son and have him run swinging with CGI monkeys?

I'm sort of on the fence

I loved the Bourne Trilogy, and a large part of me is screaming for Greengrass and Damon to change their minds; but at the same time, I love watching Bourne just tear through people.

I don't want this to be another Bond franchise. One 20+ movie spy franchise is enough. Tony Gilroy did very well with writing the trilogy,and I hope they go back to him to pen the script.

Since the first 3 Bourne films were about finding out who he was, and he did find out, I am concerned with what the central theme will be for the next one (or possibly three). I remember Damon saying a while ago that he would return only if they had a great story for Bourne, not just a great story.

I'll keep my fingers crossed on this one and hope that Greengrass knows what he's doing.

I can't believe what I'm hearing here. I figured most of us would be like me and love another one. Some of you are saying you're not interested in knowing more about Bourne. Why not? There's more to show. His training, his first years with the agency that would end up betraying him. I'm highly intersted in learning more about him. Especially if Greengrass and Damon come back. I mean it could be worse with the trends in Hollywood today. We could get a shitty Direct to dvd sequel with a new cast

I mean it could be worse with the trends in Hollywood today. We could get a shitty Direct to dvd sequel with a new cast ala Behind enemy lines. And Yes, Bourne IS Bond, IMO, a whole lot more interesting. I mean look at the bond series, its the longest running movie franchise ever, but how many of those movies are above average?? Only a handful. I would love to see 6 total Borune movies. As long as Damon keeps coming back and decent directors/writers are at the helm I'm down...

sequel-worthy

bourne is the u.s version of bond, just because he got his memory back at this trilogy, doesnt mean we shouldnt get more. think of how many lame movies get sequels (i'm looking at you, cloverfield or the host).

bourne easily deserves another flick, due to the story, writing, and acting talents of everyone involved. if its done well, we will come...

Just let it go

Although I liked Indy 4, it just felt out of place with the rest of the movies (good, but not as good). I'm afraid that is what will happen with Bourne. It could be good, but it would just feel tacked on after the great ending to Ultimatum.

Bad Idea

The trilogy is perfect. We don't need to know more about Jason Bourne. We know enough and to do a fourth installment would just kill it. Even if Greengrass and Damon return, it's just going to be an action-packed adventure that will add nothing to the series.

I really hope this one falls apart. I don't want a fourth. Bourne is not Bond.

Sigh..

I dont think they can get any better after the Ultimatum. It was the perfect way to end it. I mean, anyone else realize they ended it the way they started Identity? Genius. Ludlum didn't write anymore books, and now Hollywood is getting greedy again.

I'm with Mut for the most part. Hollywood should let this one go while it is still good. It was a great series and ended great. I'd be more than satisfied with no fake sequel.

Really? They're going to come up with an original idea for the 4th movie because the book wasn't written by Ludlum? Didn't they do that with Supremacy and Ultimatum because they sure didn't take the plot from the books. Not that I dislike the movies at all... but just saying....

I'm only for this if Paul Greengrass and Damon return. If they do in fact return, then I'm mega-pumped for this film.

I'm with Halik. The trilogy is perfect as is. No need to ruin it with an unnecessary sequel.

Idea for Bourne 4

I think Jason Bourne should hunt down the Frank Darabont script. Maybe have a gritty handheld action piece at the skywalker ranch. Just an idea.

what should happen

Each movie should be about a new memory... Like the time he remembers he tried out for a porno.
Or the time he went to a baseball game. OR EVEN that one time, when he got a speeding ticket... where was the cop, he didn't see any cop hiding behind a sign... must be a conspiracy

Love the Bourne idea... Mike, please don't remind us of Indiana Jones' atrocuousness. It gets me into a rage over how George Lucas has ruined anything I enjoyed in my childhood. Next he'll remake Police Academy and put aliens and a Jamaican stereotype sidekick in it.

Bourne was the best trilogy in recent memory and of course Hollywood is going to ruin it. The final shot of the last movie was like the first shot of the first movie. This is just Hollywood trying to cash in and cause I love Bourne I will not be seeing this in theaters.
