Producer Frank Marshall, behind the upcoming The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and the highly successful Bourne series, took a moment away from touting the Brad Pitt-David Fincher piece to update a select pool of journalists (somehow I snuck in with real journalists) on one of our favorite spies, Jason Bourne.

Marshall assured us that Bourne 4 would definitely be happening, though at this point the only two people signed on are Marshall himself and writer Chris Nolfi.  If things go to plan, a good script will develop that will draw Damon back to he project, despite some resistance to continuing the character.

As for the script, there is a wealth of information available to the production now that they have the rights to all over the Robert Ludlum stories, including many that didn’t feature Jason Bourne, but that could be written around the character.  A particular favorite of Marshall is called The Parsifal Mosaic, which was set during the Cold War and followed a spy who becomes entangled in a plot that could end in nuclear strikes while delving into the death of his lover, a KGB double agent.  Sounds alright by me.

It’s worth noting that while Bourne has continued in novels, most of those books are written by other authors and not covered with Marshall’s Ludlum deal.

When Bourne comes in from the cold, we’ll brief you on new developments.
