After a lot of speculation and back and forth about “Bourne 4″, it sounds like there is finally some news from someone who should know best what’s going on. “Bourne” Trilogy Producer Frank Marshall posted on his Twitter that “Tony Gilroy, the keeper of the Bourne flame, is back with us to write the treatment for #4, THE BOURNE LEGACY…” and Deadline states that he’s also writing “what studio insiders are calling the ‘Bourne Bible’.“
Tony Gilroy is the mastermind who wrote all three “Bourne” screen plays. That’s why his return to the successful “Bourne” franchise could be also considered a jackpot for Universal and “Bourne” fans from all around the world if they get Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass (Matt said he won’t do “Bourne 4″ without Paul, and Paul said he’s not doing another “Bourne” movie).
Let’s hope that Tony Gilroy’s return is reason enough for Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon to sign on for “Bourne 4.” After all, Matt Damon IS Jason Bourne, and Jason Bourne needs Paul Greengrass behind the cameras.
They are hoping to release the movie for 2012.
