  • An amazing article, in which everyone seems to attack Bourne Identity director Doug Liman on the record, is at the LA Times - here's an excerpt referring to Bourne 1:

    When the film was finished, the studio expected the worst. Screenwriter Tony Gilroy, according to a source with firsthand knowledge, actually arbitrated against himself with the Writers Guild so that he wouldn't have to take sole credit for the film.

    As it turned out, the picture was a huge hit. Liman says the film's success was due to a successful collaboration between him and star Matt Damon, who did not comment for this article. When it came to making the second film, Marshall, Crowley and screenwriter Gilroy refused to participate if Liman were to be involved. Liman appealed to Damon to support him. Damon said he'd work with Liman if Marshall and the others went along. They would not. Liman had no involvement with the second film, though he was contractually entitled to executive producer credit.

    It does sound like Limon is being attacked, but I think that the article just shows that he's a rather "unique" individual that sometimes need more pratical people around him to make sure the best product is being produced.

    I hope that M&MS is as much of a hit for him as TBI was, but so much more money is on the line this time, too.
