[Universal Studios] has signed a deal with the estate of [The Bourne Identity] author Robert Ludlum (who died in 2001) that gives them exclusive rights to the character and first look at other Ludlum novels.The movies have nearly nothing to do with the plot-lines from the books. However, the movies are very good on their own. I love the character, so seeing more story lines play out -- in print and on-screen -- is just fine with me!
Initially intended to be a trilogy, there is now a fourth Bourne film in development. Matt Damon is reprising his role as the super-skilled former spy, whilst Paul Greengrass will again direct. The film will hit screens in summer 2010.

The Pajama Pundit welcomes people from all political stripes to voice opinions freely and without fear of mean-spirited attacks. He does however expect intelligent discussion -- and some understanding of proper grammar usage.
