Director Paul Greengrass, director of “The Bourne Supremacy,” and “The Bourne Ultimatum,” says he won’t be directing the fourth Jason Bourne movie. Here’s what Greengrass said about his decision not to do a fourth movie:
“You won’t find a more devoted supporter of the Bourne franchise than me… I’m very proud of those (Bourne) films and feel they express everything I most passionately believe about the possibility of making quality movies in the mainstream. My decision to not return a third time as director is simply about feeling the call for a different challenge… Jason Bourne existed before me and will continue, and I hope to remain involved in some capacity as the series moves on.”
There is no word on who will helm a fourth film. It’s also not known if the several script that have been in development for a fourth movie will be used or if another new script will be commissioned.
Paul Greengrass will most definitely be missed. Whoever they choose to head Bourne 4, that person has some large shoes to fill.
