The Jason Bourne trilogy is like my Star Wars. I burn these movies onto DVDs and leave the labels blank and just leave the discs lying in different places around the house, so that if I need to burn something I’ll pop a DVD into my iBook thinking it’s blank and poof, the movie is set to start playing automatically from wherever it left off and I’m immediately sucked back into this whole world of intrigue and excitement.
I have a Glock stashed under the cushions of my love seat and a Sig Sauer 9mm hidden in the freezer along with several passports and a fortune in foreign currency.
The prospect of a new movie has me pretty stoked. I wonder what it will be about. In Bourne Ultimatum it was hinted that Jason and Nicky might have had some kind of romantic past. How many of you really want to see Matt Damon getting it on with Julia Stiles? That’s why I was excited to read that the new one might be set in the period immediately following The Bourne Identity. That would mean the return of Franka Potente as Marie in a true sequel to the greatest love story ever told: The Bourne Identity.
Franka, one day you will be my beautiful bride and we will live together in perpetual bliss and I will put many many babies inside you.
The character of Marie was Canadian in the original Bourne novels. I think the fourth Bourne movie should take place in Montreal so Jason can run around in the Underground City and have a shootout in the lipstick forest.
I read somewhere that the new movie might be called “The Bourne Legacy.” The gang over on the Giraffecycle forum have a few more suggestions.
