I loved Matt Damon in The Bourne movies, and both were excellent. These new stills from the upcoming third film, The Bourne Ultimatum were released on IMDB website, where the status is listed as “filming,” and it is slated for an October, 2007 release. The only thing I’ll really miss is German actress Franka Potente, who was killed off in the last Bourne film after a heartbreaking car chase over a bridge.
Here’s a kind of worthless teaser trailer, that has the release date listed as this spring, which is probably wrong. I swear I saw an actual trailer for this film, but I can’t find it anywhere. Have any of you seen the trailer?
And here’s a scene recorded on set in Tangier, it’s kind of boring, but Matt Damon’s in it, so what the hell.
Word has it that The Bourne series could go up to five films. The Bourne Ultimatum is the last Bourne novel written by now-deceased Robert Ludlum in 1990 (although I tried to read the first book and found it much different from the film), but there were two sequels written by Eric Van Lustbader called The Bourne Legacy and The Bourne Trajectory. These follow-up novels were published in 2007 and 2007, probably to capitalize on the movie series. The producer says there’s enough material left for two more movies and it’s up to Damon how many films will be made.
