Grass is Greener For Bourne Director
The Bourne series has suffered another setback after director Paul Greengrass has decided to pull out of directing the fourth installment. It was reported on Monday that he’d quit the production amid alleged creative differences and dissatisfaction with Universal’s decision to develop dual scripts, but in an official
“My decision to not return a third time as director is simply about feeling the call for a different challenge. There’s been no disagreement with Universal Pictures. The opportunity to work with the Bourne family again is a difficult thing to pass up, but we have discussed this together and they have been incredibly understanding and supportive.
“I’ve been lucky enough to have made four films for Universal, and our relationship continues. Jason Bourne existed before me and will continue, and I hope to remain involved in some capacity as the series moves on.”
It’s the latest in a series of problems for the beleaguered fourth film, which has already seen scheduling and script issues and the small fact that er… Matt Damon still hasn’t signed up for it. Little bit difficult to make another film without your star isn’t it. Could you imagine Die Hard 4 without Bruce Willis? Yippee ki yay I don’t think so.
