Bourne 4 to film next year?
  • At the Saturn Awards, Bourne producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley discussed the next Bourne film, claiming it may film next summer for a release in 2010. Although the script has not yet been completed, the setting is likely to be South America. The video of the interview is at IESB, and a transcript of some of the comments is at Filmstalker. This is all despite Matt and director Paul Greengrass saying in March they had not committed to another film.

    Marshall: Absolutely. Hopefully we will be shooting next summer for release in 2010. There was a fourth book written, but it was not by Mr. Ludlum. So we're probably going to take our own direction and we're working on what that storyline's gonna be right now."

    Separately, In Touch magazine has suggested (randomly) that Gwyneth Paltrow may be in the film. Scan thanks to Stacie.

    Gwyneth Paltrow! God, I hope she replaces Julia Stiles! Is there a worse actress in America and she is so not hot!

    I think this sounds very exciting to bring Gwyneth into the Bourne series.

    new Bourne girl?

    Gwyneth's already in Ironman, how many tentpole movies does she want? She's a good actress, but is too quintessentially American looking to work for Bourne romantically (beause Matt is also quintessentially American looking). And she's not credible as CIA. Part of the reason that Bourne is so different and interesting a movie character is because of his devastated devotion to Marie. It they go the typical American movie blonde bombshell route it will signal that they have stopped wanting to say anything about the nature of today's world and instead have turned into mindless entertainment like Bond.

    I can't see Paul or Matt wanting to do that.

    Bourne 4 - Are we scared yet?

    Okay, the producers are planning on making Bourne #4. I understand the reasons why; money, and that's okay. But they're talking about a story without mentioning Tony Gilroy. Uh oh. No mention from their side or from Matt and Paul that they're on board. Double uh oh. Is the plan a new "Bourne" instead of Matt? New director and writer? This might actually be a good thing if it's bad. While I very much enjoyed Greengrass's version, I must say I'd like to see the more human Jason we saw in "Bourne Identity". Anyway, thanks very much for the links! Take care, Cheryl

    Re: Bourne 4 - Are we scared yet?

    Tony Gilroy said months ago he would have no part in another Bourne film (he's now a serious director and wasn't happy being associated with Ultimatum).

    But you're right, there's nothing to indicate yet that Matt or Greengrass have actually signed on, particularly as there is no script yet.

    Matt may have done a press junket on Friday for Running the Sahara or another project and may be on the entertainment shows next week.
