When Captain Phillips was held captive by pirates, it all seemed like an action movie happening in real life. Sure enough, Hollywood had to make a movie about it and here it is. The first teaser trailer of the film starring Tom Hanks as Captain Phillips. The film is directed by Paul Greengrass. Tom Hanks haven’t been in a great movie in the last 10 years or so and I hope he’ll redeem himself with this one. Tom Hanks in another adventure movie kind of like, “Cast Away”.
Universal Pictures, has officially found their director for Jason Bourne 4. The new director is Tony Gilroy. Gilroy also did, “Duplicity”, and, “Michael Clayton”. Don’t count on Matt Damon coming back for Bourne 4 ’cause it looks like it won’t happen. Damon won’t do it without Paul Greengrass. So look like we’re gonna get a different actor for, Jason Bourne. It also sounds like they are re-booting the entire franchise as this article said they are going back to the beggining, not continuing from the last Bourne movie.
See the article here at, Deadline.
Could the franchise be successful without Matt Damon? To be honest with you, yes it could be successful easily. Hope they find a good actor for the next, Jason Bourne. I’m a big fan of the Jason Bourne stories. Huge fan. If James Bond and Jack Ryan can go through so many different actors, the same will happen with the Jason Bourne movies.
Who should be the next Jason Bourne? I hope it won’t be Jeremy Renner or Channing Tatum.
I would like Jason Ritter from NBC’s “The Event”, to be the new Bourne. That show, “The Event” is almost Bourne like, Jason Ritter might be a good pick.
Paul Greengrass, the director, who made, “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum”, has decided to drop out of directing, “Bourne 4”. Paul says he will still be involved with the film, however, but not as director.

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.
