The Bourne Legacy

What do you get when you combine the action franchise spawned from the best-selling spy thrillers of the late Robert Ludlum that has become one of the most influential movie series of the past 25 years and the smokin’ funky grooves of late 1970’s disco?

Bourne To Be Alive, that’s what.

This video mashes up scenes from all three of the original Jason Bourne adventures – The Bourne Identity (2002), The Bourne Supremacy (2004), and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) – and scenes from the trailers for the forthcoming semi-sequel/franchise reboot The Bourne Legacy with the 1979 dance floor classic “Born to Be Alive” by Patrick Hernadez.

You can watch the video here below.

The Osterman Weekend (1983)

Despite losing the opportunity to call the shots on Thor 2, acclaimed veteran television director Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) has kept busy lining up other jobs in the meantime. Recently he signed on to direct a new film adaptation of Robert Ludlum‘s 1972 suspense novel The Osterman Weekend, from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand) and Jesse Wigutow (It Runs in the Family).

The plot of the film, according to The Playlist, “centers on John Tanner, who is told by a reporter that his friends aren’t who they say they are. The reporter then turns up dead, forcing John to go on the run and figure out the conspiracy before he winds up dead himself.” Robert Schwentke (RED) was originally slated to direct the film back in 2010, but left to make R.I.P.D. when the project stalled.

The Bourne Legacy

Universal Pictures has released a new poster and teaser trailer for their upcoming super-spy sequel The Bourne Legacy. You can check them both out here below.

The gritty, globe-trotting action franchise inspired by the novels of the late Robert Ludlum seemed to have wrapped up with 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, which was star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass’ farewell to the series that made them both household names in Hollywood. But never underestimate a studio’s willingness to exploit a viable cash cow for every penny its worth.

You Won’t Find Jason Bourne Or Matt Damon In Tony Gilroy’s ‘The Bourne Legacy’

The Movie God   |  @   |

A few days ago we found out that Jason Bourne franchise writer Tony Gilroy would be pulling double-duty as both writer and director for the fourth installment in the series, The Bourne Legacy. The looming concern was whether star Matt Damon would be willing to return to his role despite the fact that second and third chapter director Paul Greengrass wasn’t involved.

The answer is apparently no.

After the initial reports of Gilroy’s involvement, the director wanted to make sure some unclear things became very clear, and one of those things was the Damon/Bourne factor. Gilroy explained in detail that this would be the movie we’ve heard about all along, using the Bourne title but at the same time being a completely original story, not adapted from Robert Ludlum‘s novel. Now we know that in this, a brand new hero will be used, not Jason Bourne, and that it will supposedly paint a much bigger picture to the world we’ve seen expand over the course of the first three movies.

Click on over to the other side to read Gilroy’s plan and explanation.

Matt Damon Says ‘Bourne’ Sequel Still Five Years Away; Prequel With New Director & Star Possible

Jason Bourne

It seems like the moment that it was announced that a fourth Jason Bourne movie would be made to follow The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum that was not based on a Robert Ludlum novel, everything started going wrong and falling out of place.

Through the many problems, the biggest was of course when director Paul Greengrass decided to leave the movie and move on to other things (Read: ‘Bourne’ Trilogy Director Paul Greengrass Walks Away From ‘Bourne 4′). Since Greengrass did not direct all three of the previous films, so long as the studio kept their hands on star Matt Damon, all could still be sunshine and rainbows, right?
