Next Bourne? After three films as our beloved Jason Bourne, Matt Damon has declined working on the new project, The Bourne Legacy, and has said goodbye to the character
After three films as our beloved Jason Bourne, Matt Damon has declined working on the new project, The Bourne Legacy, and has said goodbye to the character. Who will be the next Bourne? Jake Gyllenhaal – hot property thanks to the recent Love and Other Drugs – currently heads up a very long list which reportedly includes Tobey Maguire, Garrett Hedlund and Josh Harnett. Unfortunately, it will be 2012 before we get to enjoy Bourne's next adventure.
Inception in 3D?
Still just a rumour, but filmmaker Jonathan Liebesman (Battle:Los Angeles) commented during an interview that Warner Bros will convert Christopher Nolan's mind-maze into 3D. The news bodes well: imagine the city folding in on itself in 3D. Apparently, Nolan is not a huge advocate of the technology but fan pressures could change the British director's mind and a tri-dimensional version of the acclaimed work could be on the cards.
Who could have forgotten the legendary scene in which Kevin Costner holds Whitney Houston while 'I will always love you' plays in the background? It may divide the fans of the 1992 drama, but a updated version is on the way. Costner's character is now an Iraq war veteran who leaves the army and gets a job as a starlet protector. The threats are far removed from the original and involve new technologies such as Facebook or Twitter. Candidates for the new diva are reported to include Christina Aguilera and Taylor Swift.
