Bourne 3 to be filmed in London and Europe
  • The first confirmed details of where Bourne Ultimatum will be filming are from an interview with Frank Marshall at Empire:

    Marshall: Yeah, my next film as a producer will be the third in the Jason Bourne series, The Bourne Ultimatum, which will be shot here in London and all over in Europe, but it’ll be based here in London with Paul Greengrass again.

    Filming in London

    That's good news for us folks in London. I always thought it would be a good location for the Bourne series.

    Does anyone know if Matt's in New York today? I walked past someone who looked exactly like Lucy.

    In people they reported that Ace Young and Chris Daugherty were the Matt and Ben equivalent on American Idol, nice to get along with etc. I think that is just weird and kinda funny because they are no match for Matt and Ben in my opinion.

    It used to be Damon and Pythias from Greek myth as the best of friends (like brothers). Now it's Damon and Affleck--obviously a different Damon! It's a compliment to Matt and Ben that they've been elevated to the stature of universal symbols of close friendship. No one was comparing the American Idol wannabes to our two big stars--only saying they were good friends by using the current metaphor for fruendship: Matt and Ben.

    I remember watching an interview for The Bourne Supremacy and the Producers/Directors were discussing possible locations. They wanted something different (hence Goa). What I want to know... what's wrong with Australia??? We always get left out!

    (of interest to Australians only)

    We certainly do. Lots of reasons why they would never come here, I think. Paul Greengrass thinks that Bourne is based in Europe; there are only a few major studio lots here, and they appear to be pretty permanently booked; nobody on the crew/cast has any real ties to Australia etc.

    Mostly though, it's an awful long way to come for only six weeks or so (only a portion of the movie could be set in any one location), and it would be virtually impossible to do any pick-up shots later on a budget. Foreign produced films wouldn't get any local tax concessions (I think) like they could in Europe, and it would just be the wrong feel for a Bourne film (to me).

    I'm pleased, as any Bourne movie filmed in Australia would have lots of local "characters/cheap labour" included, which would destroy it for me (take your pick of Gary Sweet, Sam Worthington, Claudia Karvan, a Daddo, Joel Edgerton, any of the Channel 10 extras etc).

    Are you an Aussie??? My point was, if they can be bothered going all the way to Goa where it was remote and a nightmare to film... they could have continued to Oz. Bourne may have gone all the way to the otherside of the world if he was trying to fall off the grid! Nevermind, I do understand your point.

    "My point was, if they can be bothered going all the way to Goa where it was remote and a nightmare to film"


    What do you mean by "a nightmare to film"?
    From: peta_h Date: April 22nd, 2006 03:14 am (UTC) (Link)
    In the interview they were saying that everytime they got a camera out, all the locals, who had crowded around, would all stare at it. Having to deal with the temperature as well as stray oxen walking around etc. They weren't accustomed to Hollywood moving in and filming in their streets. (Special Features on the Bourne Supremacy)

    It certainly wasn't a nightmare in Goa, and everyone had a great time there, but local crowds did appear to make it difficult in certain exterior scenes.

    And yep, I'm in Australia (I thought that was very obvious!)

    I never realised you were in Australia.... I thought I was all alone down here! You make me feel proud! Knowing the best Matt info is home grown from Oz!!!
