BREAKING NEWS: Paul Greengrass will not do “Bourne 4″…

This is kind of sad news and good news at the same time. Why sad? Because Paul did a brilliant job directing the last two movies. I think the Bourne trilogy is amazing, I love them all three of them. The good news, I think they will find a better director to make “Bourne 4” a more action packed film. It’s going to be interesting to see who they are going to pick as the next director.

They could even get Doug Liman back who directed the first one, “The Bourne Identity”, never know.

Report: Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood to work together for the second time in the “Hereafter”…

Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood already worked together for the film, “Invictus” which is set for a theaterical release date on, Dec. 11th.

Clint recruited Matt Damon again to star in a thriller titled, “Hereafter”. The plot and synopsis is being kept underwraps for now. Clint and the crew will start filming “Hereafter” right away this fall. While they are keeping quiet on the plot, they compare this film to the likes of, “The Sixth Sense”. Hope this isn’t another film about seeing dead people?

Will Clint have a starring role to be onscreen with Matt in “Hereafter”? Could that be why they are keeping the plot secret for now?

Report: Jason Bourne to become the next James Bond? Universal Studios scores rights to Matt Damon’s iconic character…

Universal Pictures has made an overall deal with author Robert Ludlum that gives them the right to make any Jason Bourne movie based on his books and gives them the right to make films on his other novels too. Ludlum Entertainment gave Universal the go ahead to continue the Jason Bourne saga.

The series was originally supposed to be a three part trilogy but since the “Bourne Ultimatum’s” huge success, they decided to get right to work on a fourth installment. The 4th Bourne will be an original story, it won’t be adapted from one of Ludlum’s novels. Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are still on board for a 4th Bourne, the film is confirmed for a summer of 2010 release.

Although there are only 6 novels in the Jason Bourne series written by Ludlum, Universal feels they can keep the stories going.

What do you think? You think Jason Bourne can take the spotlight of James Bond in the future? Universal wants to keep Jason Bourne going forever. Matt Damon can’t play the character forever so obviously there will be different actors playing the character whenever Damon hangs it up.

While I did like “The Bourne Identity” and “The Bourne Supremacy”, those are good movies, I think “The Bourne Ultimatum” is the best of the three. It’s very rare to me when I think a third sequel of a trilogy is the best of the three. “The Bourne Ultimatum” is an amazing action flick, such a thrill ride with incredible action sequences throughout the entire film, non stop.

I hope the 4th Bourne will be even more action packed.

Report: “Bourne 4” greenlighted!!!

Universal Studios has greenlighted to make a fourth Jason Bourne movie. The three Jason Bourne movies so far are “The Bourne Identity”, “The Bourne Supremacy”, and “The Bourne Ultimatum”. George Nolfi will write the script for the 4th Bourne film.

While the first three Jason Bourne flicks were adapted by the novels written by Robert Ludlum, the fourth one will not be adapted from one of his books, instead the 4th Bourne will be an original story. Director Paul Greengrass will helm the fourth film as he directed the last two (Greengrass didn’t direct “Bourne Identity”), and of course, Matt Damon will reprise his role as Jason Bourne.

Cool. Glad the fourth one will be an original story, not adapted by the book. The story will be more unpredictable that way.

One thing though, while I do hope the next Bourne movie will be action packed all the way through just like “The Bourne Ultimatum” was, I hope the action scenes in the 4th one will be more creative and original. I would like to see more than the typical car chases and the running after the badguys on foot.

Matt Damon sure is on his way in becoming the next generation action hero. He’s no Sly/Arnold but Damon is quickly on his way up there.
