Bourne Keeps Coming

11.21.2008

If you're a fan of that Jason Bourne guy you're in luck. A lot of luck. Universal has nabbed exclusive rights to the Bourne character as well as first-look at any other Robert Ludlum novels. Originally conceived as a trilogy, the Bourne series has grossed over 1 billion dollars worldwide and there's many more books featuring the character that can be turned into profitable films. Why not, right? Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are already signed on to a fourth installment which I'm guessing will be called something like "The Bourne Conundrum" or something to that effect.

Aah yes, more fight scenes where the cameraman gets an epileptic fit while filming. This only this will work is by creating a spin-off of the JB character maybe as a teenager and get one of the Jonas Bros. to play the part otherwise forget it.

As for the title how about The Bourne-Star? Possible plot: Mark Walhberg can appear as dirk diggler (by refernce only) who tries to uncover JB's former life (maybe to embarass him or something) in the porn-industry before he become a badass

Think about it, Jason Bourne has finally found a piece of his life he actually doesn't want YOU to know about!
SPOILER ALERT: the dirk diggler character is his brother!

Locations: Thailand, Amsterdam, Las Vegas

Co-stars: Diane Lane as a retired stripper turned CIA-informant and later love intrest, Djimon Honsou as one of the 'hitman-of-the-week' baddies.

I LOVE BOURNE

But its not like this is Bond we are talking about. I mean, where are they going to go from here? He's a guy that just wants out, so how are they gonna make a bunch of movies about that? At some point, they will overdo it and it is gonna suck WORSE than Quantum.

I am excited to see the fourth, but unless they present a concept that they can go forward with, I hope they end it with that.

A Bond vs Bourne movie would be so amazing if directed by the likes of scorcese or Michael Mann. That would be amazing to see and one of the biggest money makers of all time. will NEVER happen but mmmmm...what a thought.

American Bond

I like the idea of having an "American Bond" franchise. I hope they keep going and when Greengrass and Damon want to stop, they go ahead and cast a new actor and a new director.

SCRIPT IDEA

How about:

Right after the Bourne Ultimatum, Jason Bourne finds out through the CIA database that Steve Seagal,bloated washed up star of shitty action films, is his father. Unable to reconcile this tragedy in his mind, Bourne goes apeshit crazy and kills half of the CIA.All with the help of a lesbian Russian double agent named Ivanna Lickalot, played by Jessica Biel.

cool...

i really like the bourne films, as well as ludlums books. it was a well made american version of a bond-style character. great action flicks. and while matt damon was too young looking for me personally, his acting made it quite convincing and won me over in the end.

my only gripe about these flicks, was that "in your face" fight sequence, where you are so close to the action its just blurry and you dont really know what the hell they're doing to each other, and the latest 007 film suffers

my only gripe about these flicks, was that "in your face" fight sequence, where you are so close to the action its just blurry and you dont really know what the hell they're doing to each other, and the latest 007 film suffers from that, to a degree also. it detracts from the film because its too fast and hard to follow.

other than that minor complaint, these films rock as action movies, so i say bring on "Bourne Free", which isnt a chinese guys version of the third in a trilogy, but refers to Bourne being free of the memory probs, and able to utilize his particular skillset to bring down the guys who killed his true love, by stopping other agents from committing their acts.

interesting

I just finished buying the and watching the Bourne trilogy (it was $21, y the fuck not?) and I really enjoyed it. Some things were over used and over done but at the end of it all I left myself wanting to pop in another disc.

So I'm game for The Bourne Poopanthiom

Why do people who either don't like the movies or have never seen them even post? Go post about a movie you do like. Don't cry about it to people who enjoy the film. Bunch a babies.

Paul Greengrass is overrated. The 2nd and 3rd movies had enough plot to fill maybe a chapter of a novel.

Seriously though, how much can you possibly piss one man off? I'm waiting for Jason Bourne to turn into The Hulk. DAMON SMASH!

Here's an idea: The CIA or whoever take a look at all the dead bodies and wrecked cars and say, "F#ck it. We quit. Let's go find Osama or play golf or something."

But we all know that won't happen. If they're going to make a 4th film (and it certainly seems

They can make all the Bourne movies they want.

It's a free country. Hey, if Uwe Boll can direct movies then I guess Paul [link] Greenass can.

Just please, oh please, tell the producers of the superior James Bond franchise to NEVER AGAIN emulate the action style of the Bourne movies. It was because of such an attempt that "Quantum of Solace" had some of the most boring action sequences ever in a Bond film.

I wonder what they'll do with a 4th one...

Let me guess.

Bourne warns them not to mess with him.

They decide to mess with Bourne.

Bourne goes America all over everyone's asses.

He tells them this is why they shouldn't mess with him and they agree.

Until...

Bourne 5

They decide to mess with Bourne again.


Why not? I can see America going for this formula at least 6 more times. Why not make 2 more trilogies out of it. I mean, Bourne has only found out who he really is 3 separate times.

"Does anyone even care that none of these movies follow the books at all? Identity did somewhat, but Supremacy didn't, and neither did Ultimatum. While mark.strang is right the next three Bourne novels are Legacy, Betrayal, and Sanction, they weren't even written by Ludlum, and other than stealing the titles the studio doesn't want any input from them anyway. The novels were great, I wish Hollywood would stop tarnishing them.

It makes sense that Universal is retaining rights to a character

It makes sense that Universal is retaining rights to a character that has made them millions, wait... billions of dollars, I just wish they'd drop the whole 'Based on the novels of Robert Ludlum"" charade. Jason Bourne is becoming the next James Bond, and that's cool. Let's just all recognize it for what it is. Ok, I'll get off my soapbox now..."

James Bourne

Now that the Bond series has completely morphed into the Bourne series does it even matter if they continue the series .

The only difference now is who plays the lead character . They both have Blond hair , they both run around like a kid hopped up on too much ritalin , and they are both secret agents kicking everyone's bum in sight . Craig may have the edge though , he has that i love the sound of my own voice accent .

I'm bored of both series , i really don't care what happens to either

The Bourne Again

Besides the one above, which I think would be sweet, I say call the next movie "The Bourne Destiny" about him doing what he thinks he was meant to do and dismantle and "cure" others like him or "The Bourne Vendetta" about him just annihilating the whole secret organization he used to work for.

As much as I like the Bourne series, I think it has had it's moment. Ultimatum was just okay in my book, it seemed like it was just all non-stop action and no plot whatsoever. I personally like Identity the best. I might dig it if someone other than Greengrass directed because I am sick of the shaky cam, quick-cut action movies these days. But even then, what more could they do with Bourne? I think the series is pretty much wrapped up.

bourne legacy is doubtful

isnt that the title of the fourth book... that ones about his son, and I doubt theyll fast forward to him being 50 or make up some crap anout having an adult son when he and the series are still so young... so unless they try to make it more of an "i am legend" type legacy, then I think its gonna be the first to stray from the novels titles.
