Greengrass, Batman project

  • From a recent interview with Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass, where he accepted an award for United 93 from Total Film magazine (which incidentally has Matt on the cover of this month's issue):

    Greengrass: "When I was doing 93 I could feel the, 'Oh dear, you’re not getting into 9/11, are you?'" continues the softly spoken director. "It’s weird, cos this [The Bourne Ultimatum] is the reverse. Every day you’re out on the street and people say, ‘What are you doing?’ And you say, ‘The Bourne Ultimatum.’ And they’re like, ‘Oh fantastic, can’t wait to see it!’ It’s a different kind of a pressure then. Like, you’ve got to not disappoint them."

  • And from a profile on Greengrass in The Guardian (but there's been no suggestion before that Ultimatum is budgeted this high):

    Greengrass's previous film was a franchise blockbuster, The Bourne Supremacy, with Matt Damon as the CIA-trained assassin with a conscience, Jason Bourne. Now Greengrass is filming the third Bourne film, The Bourne Ultimatum, entrusted by Universal with an eye-popping $125m budget. And it was announced on Wednesday that his next project will be Imperial Life in the Emerald City, based on the book about life in Baghdad's green zone by Rajiv Chandrasekaran.

  • Matt is rumored to have declined the role of Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight, the Batman Begins sequel - here.
