Jason Bourne Not Backing Down to Bond’s 19 Film Lead

Jason Bourne: Chasing Down James Bond

Among cinematic super-spies, Jason Bourne is currently the ‘in’ guy, despite the fact that sneaky Brit agent James Bond continues to truck right along, releasing his 22nd installment next month. But Bourne isn’t backing down, as news is coming in today that Universal is pressing on with the already announced fourth film in the franchise. According to Variety, the film will be written by Bourne Ultimatum co-writer George Nolfi, and will not be based on a story from Bourne creator Robert Ludlum. This fourth installment will be an original story.

The other important news is that according to Variety, Universal has secured the participation of director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon. This means two things: that Jason Bourne will be in the fourth film, and that the film will also including nauseatingly shaky camera work. That said, who isn’t excited about another Bourne movie — if anyone has had doubts about the staying power of this series, those should be long extinguished after three impressive outings. Then again, that is one man’s opinion — it is time for you to weigh in below.
