Good Rumor about Universal

I hope Matt's movie gets going with Universal -- they tend to market his movies well!

Except the situation's a repeat of Green Zone. Universal put Green Zone into production hoping to entice Matt to stay with the studio and it didn't work out (despite Bourne copycat marketing).

Re: Good Rumor about UniversalI

I forgot about that -- strange how things turn out. The Green Zone was an excellent movie that was released at the wrong time, and should not have been anticipated to be a box office smash. A combination of dashed expectations, ill timing, and public perception does not make for good box office and prevented this Greengrass/Damon movie from receiving the honor it deserves.

Re: Good Rumor about Universal

I agree that if the studio wants to entice Matt to make another Bourne they just need to listen to his many public statements and produce Greengrass and an excellent script (one that takes Bourne beyond looking for his lost memory). I think that would serve the studio, the public, and Matt very well.
