We have missed the Bourne franchise. Whatever The Bourne Legacy was supposed to be, it failed on too many levels. The film was slick, and quite well made, but the “original character” invented outside of a fairly iconic book series just didn’t click with audience members. It left fans missing their first love, Jason Bourne. What better way to revive the franchise than to put Jason back on screen, in a self-titled adventure? Here are 10 reasons why Jason Bourne will revive the entire Bourne franchise.
10. Paul Greengrass Is In The Saddle
There are many who are still partial to the first Bourne film, The Bourne Identity, starring Matt Damon, and directed by…? Remember? Doug Liman. The film nearly killed Doug, and it definitely strained his relationship with cinematographer Oliver Wood. Even if Doug wanted to come back for the sequels, it likely would have been a no-go from the studio. So, Paul Greengrass settled into the director’s chair, and not surprisingly, picked up where Liman left off without all the drama on set. In fairness to everyone, the first two films were pretty dang awesome, and that’s what we’re expecting for Jason Bourne. Well, stylistically speaking. Tonally speaking. Paul was responsible for both The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum, so he and Matt Damon enjoyed a working shorthand, enabling them to quickly get back in the saddle. Paul is a huge audience draw to the sequel.http://toutlecine.challenges.fr/star/0005/00056415-photos-paul-greengrass.html Via toutlecine.challenges.fr
