The Bourne Mosaic?

12.08.2008

THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM A little while ago, Universal signed a deal with Robert Ludlum's estate that would grant them exclusive rights to amnesiac super spy Jason Bourne and a first look at other Ludlum novels. And you bet your shiny little ass they're taking advantage of this to plot the further amnesiac adventures of Bourne. While talking to "Comingsoon.net", producer Frank Marshall mentioned the following:

Q: Would this come at all from the new book, "The Bourne Betrayal"?

Marshall: No, the "Bourne Betrayal" was written by a friend of Ludlum's.... It had nothing to do with us.... We want to stay true to the original character.

Q: Any ideas for a "Bourne" title?

Marshall: Well, there's a lot of jokes. "Bourne Again," "Bourne Yesterday," "Bourne Free," "Bourne on the Fourth." I actually want to do that. Call it that and release the movie on the fourth.

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.

Mosaic, as per CS, "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."

So staying true to the character means ripping a story from a completely unrelated book? Ok, then. He also mentioned that only the writer George Nolfi is officially signed on. At this point, neither Matt Damon nor Paul Greengrass are officially on board.

Extra Tidbit: No, absolutely not. Do not turn the BOURNE series into MR. AND MRS. SMITH, goddammit!

seriously?

Marshall LIKED the idea of calling it Bourne on the Fourth?
He just lost huge points right there, without even making the movie.

wait wait wait wait wait

Am I the only one who loved Mr. and Mrs. Smith? That movie is genius from start to finish, and is by far one of the best summer popcorn flicks Ive ever seen.

That being said, I would rather them stop the franchise here, and I am usually always down for sequels (after all, the sequels dont make the originals any worse). Bourne's storyline is right where it needs to be, and re-opening his saga could just make it worse.

title request

I've got one, how about Bourne in the USA? Bourne Retarted was catchy but didn't relate. Gotta make another one for sure. Does anyone else think Julia Stiles is hot or have I had too many shots?

Hmmm...

Just looking at the photo, I'm thinking the Mosaic story could be adapted for Bourne and Ms. Stile's character...

the end.....?

Why not make a TV series instead and have one of the guys from Lost to do it coz just like that series they also don't know how its going to end.

A spy rips off another spy and does it again

Um...so this is sorta like Casino Royale..where an spy falls hard for another spy then finds out AFTER she dies that she's a double crosser...but then again this also sounds like the aforementioned Mr. & Ms. Smith (terrible film also)

No Means No!

I'm not getting a good vibe from the premise above. It does not sound like a Bourne movie AT ALL and it does sound way too familiar to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Please, PLEASE do not ruin this amazing franchise!.
