The Bourne Ultimatum 220x150 The Bourne Franchise is NOT Dead   Tony Gilroy Writing The Bourne LegacyWhat did we do before Twitter?! For anyone who doesn’t already, you can follow us here. And while you’re there, you should follow one of the world’s greatest movie Producers, Frank Marshall (Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Hook, The Sixth Sense + a million more!).

The man who also producers the Bourne franchise has just told us that there is….:

Fantastic news today! Tony Gilroy, the keeper of the Bourne flame, is back with us to write the treatment for #4, THE BOURNE LEGACY…

If you’re a fan of The Bourne movies, then this is great news. Tony Gilroy is the master of conspiracy movies. He also wrote Proof of Life (which very oddly and completely by coincidence I’m watching as I write this post), more recently State of Play (also for Crowe) and has always been involved in the Bourne movies. The fact he’s still on board and working can only be a good thing. The fact Paul Greengrass (director of the previous 2) pulled out was bad, but what’s to say he’ll never come back?

We’ll keep you posted as more unfolds.

    Honestly, the way they left it was the perfect ending to the trilogy, a natural end to the story arc. To make another when there isn't necessarily another story to tell, or try to begin a new story arc – especially without Greengrass – would be a risk, and I don't think the best thing for the franchise. It needs to be left as it is.

    The only way to take it forward would be to go before the first film, to examine how he became Bourne following what we found out in the three films so far, and his first missions and what happened. If you can find another story to tell which people want telling, then that's it I think. But its a big risk as the trilogy as it is stands on its own.
