  • Producer Frank Marshall discusses the possibility of another Bourne sequel and the Lance Armstrong bio-pic at Coming

    While we were talking to Mr. Marshall about The Bourne Ultimatum, we wondered whether there was any serious possibility about a fourth movie, after Matt Damon has told reporters in recent months that he's reticent about returning. "There were only three books written. I know they've written a fourth but it wasn't written by Ludlum," Marshall said. "Look, we would love to continue the franchise. We just need a great story, and we're not going to do it unless we have a great story, but we are working on coming up with one, and Matt said to me, ‘Look, you hand me a great script, I'm in.' Unfortunately, we're not able to do any writing at the moment, but we're all thinking about it."

    In the meantime, Marshall is currently looking for a director for the Lance Armstrong biopic, and that's the most current thing on his plate. "That one is on the frontburner. I hope to have that up and shooting by next summer. Lance is involved in everything, as much as he wants, but I actually just talked to him yesterday about it, and we're flying down to hopefully meet a new director on Friday. I hope it's going to happen next summer."

  • A more detailed look at the Bourne Ultimatum DVD is at the Washington Times, and a clip is at Access Hollywood. Bourne Ultimatum was also named one of the year's top 10 films by the National Board of Review.
