Nolfi Returns To Script BOURNE IV!!

I am – Hercules!!
George Nolfi, who co-wrote “The Bourne Ultimatum,” is returning for the fourth installment of the Universal franchise. The untitled sequel will not be based on a Robert Ludlum novel. Director Paul Greengrass (“United 93,” “The Bourne Supremacy,” “The Bourne Ultimatum”) and Matt Damon have been attached to the project since February. Find all of Variety’s story on the matter here.

    by Spacker Dave

    ... I think its a bad idea to go a fourth. As they stand now the Bourne flicks are one of very few trilogies that remained consistent and entertaining right through the series. It's a major gamble and especially so since there are no more Ludlum books to go off.

    Damon is in it in voice only.

Bourne is so good that he knows exactly what the guy will have to do weeks in advance.

    The Bourne Legacy..

    by CeejayNightwing

    is the unofficial 4th book so I guess that's the title they'll end up going with. But since none of the films follow the stories from the books then I'm not expecting this 4th installment to do so either. I'm guessing it will deal with his past relationship with Julia Stiles that was hinted at in the last movie and other crimes against humanity he has yet to redeem himself for. These films are great, but if they make too many they will become too formatted the way the Bond flicks were.

    by Crow3711

    When Greengrass and Damon were promoting Ultimatum they were adament about no more Bournes and kept making the joke it would be called "The Bourne Redundancy" They both expressly said there was no more story to tell and it would just be a story for the sake of telling one. Fascinating. They must have had a lot of dough thrown at them, It's strange how even people with artistic integrity go back on themselves. The Bourne Cashcow indeed.

    by _Maltheus_

    Supremacy seemed like it might have been a good movie, but I couldn't make out a single scene due to all the shakiness. I don't mind a little shakiness, it never bothered me in other movies or BSG, but they went so far overboard in the last movie that I left in shock. How could anyone give a positive review to a movie they couldn't possibly have seen? Since they've decided to go with the same director, I'll most likely pass on this one. Too bad, I really liked the first movie.

    Not be based on a Ludlum novel...

    by Darth Macchio

    Well...I don't know about the Supremacy or Ultimatum novels (or beyond) but I read 'Bourne Identity' and to say the first movie is "based" on the book would be a bit of a stretch. Names are the same, the into is pretty much the same but the moment he gets to the shore, it's quite different. The main antagonist is entirely different from the movie, etc, etc...so saying the next one isn't based on a Ludlum novel doesn't really mean anything as it's more like "The Bourne movies are very loosely based on characters and stories created by Robert Ludlum" in the first place.<p>If Greengrass directs, can someone at least get the guy a DoP who will refuse to film the whole movie in fucking shaky cam or as if it's an episode of "Cheaters!"? You're not a rebel if you sit in a booth 20 feet behind your actors and film them with a god damn handicam. You're just screwing up a scene with distracting camera work. Stop, please. And if I wanted to feel like I was right in the middle of a fistfight, I'd go down to the local pub and insult the local sports franchise or play a freakin video game, not watch an action movie.

    by _Maltheus_

    Yeah, I too got the sense that the crappy camera work was to make us feel like we were in the middle of the fight and that might make sense if Bourne was a drunk loser who had no idea what's going on, but it doesn't fit his precise, highly aware fighting style.

    I just saw your post after posting mine. Guess I wasn't the first to notice. The 2nd movie had nothing to do with the book...in fact Marie is important in the 2nd book and doesn't die like she does 5 minutes into the movie...and the 3rd one...well let's just say our friend Carlos the Jackal came back

    Bourne 4 will be in flip book form

    by Prossor

    Paul Greengrass's vision cannot be contained or realized on the film making medium anymore, to continue pursuing his unique vision for the SHAKIESt and most EDITED movie ever he will introduce Bourne 4 not in theaters, but for 10.00 you will be given the flip book and proceed to go inside a washing machine turned on and read away. Only don't eat anything 2 hours beforhand.

    Albeit, not of an official Bond film. <p> But my point remains the same. When they run out of books as source material, would you rather no more movies with that character be made?

    Look up the books on Wikipedia

    by BizarroJerry

    You will find that the two films after the first (and even the first to some extent) differ wildly from the books. For example, Bourne's girl does not get killed in #2, she gets kidnapped. Oh, and by #3 they're married and they have kids and his not on the run anymore, etc, etc. Check out the summaries.

    or that sequence in the crappy DOOM movie, and make the whole movie in POV with the camera attached to Damon's head so that we get his view the whole time. Then the constant shakiness would actually make sense.

    No Ludlum book, no problem.

    by sewiz

    Don't know if it has been mentioned yet, but it really, really doesn't matter if they are not "basing" this on a Ludlum book, as these movies where very, very different than the books (ummm as in, Bourne/Webb isn't even an assassin, he was only posing as one to draw out the world's most notorious killer, when he gets amnesia). I like the Bourne movies, but only because I can view them as seperate from the books.

    The Bourne Coercion

    by spidermanfreak20

    Next step is logical. Coercion. I think it's safe to say unless your going to go to the cliche family route. Long lost spy father or brother your only other chance is to finally make Bourne stop running and have him join up with Pam Landy and the Government. But of course he does not want to do this willing. Hence coercion. He is made by force to join up and help the side that hunted him. But of course this is the Jason Bourne series not Bond. Franchise gets boring if Bourne becomes a bitch like Bond always helping and not fleeing so as always with deception you can make it that Bourne is coerced into helping Landy and the Governement in finding 3 other agents with amnesia (like Bourne) and bring them in for questioning. Action ensues they all don't want to go. Yadda Yadda Bourne bags all their asses only to realize that he's just been lied to by Landy and these agents will be executed with no trial. One of them is executed. So Bourne being Bourne cant let that stand so he undoes his mistake in trusting Landy and the Government and helps break out the other two buddies. That seems a logical Part 4

    The Bourne Vengeance! Keep it alphabetized!

    by Freakemovie

    They've got to name it The Bourne Vengeance in order to keep the series alphabetized, or else my DVD shelf won't look right.<br><br> By the way, for the couple of folks on here who say it'll be bad because it's not based on a Ludlum novel: welcome to the party. The only movie that was remotely similar to its book was Identity; Supremacy and Ultimatum just stole the titles.

    by moviemaniac-7

    But probably only if they set out an entire arc like the first three movies. They were about remembering what he was. Now the new trilogy (or duology - whatever) should be about him getting back into the CIA and do their dirty work again. Something like that. Maybe with a sidekick. BourneMan & Robin?

    Why not? Shakey-Cam GOTTA EAT

    by MurderMostFowl

    Seriously, I hope they tone down the shakey-cam. Shakey-Cam *can* work, but only in the rarest of cases. It's like the "morph" effect in the 90's. The artificial "tension" and confusion shakey-cam provides only works in moderation, and usually it just tells me that someone along the line is a bad story teller. If you can't create tension, risk, fear legitimately in a chase, then you shouldn't have that scene. grumble grumble.... at least it's not bullet-time *and* shakey -cam
