Bourne 4 is The Parsifal Mosaic?
A fourth Jason Bourne film was confirmed a while ago, and the makers now have access to all Robert Ludlum's novels. With that in mind, the next Bourne film may be based on a book not about the man himself.
The inspiration for Bourne 4, may come from The Parsifal Mosaic. And not a Jason Bourne in sight.
The next in the series of Jason Bourne novels, The Bourne Betrayal, was written by a friend of Robert Ludlum. And as one of the producers said in June this year, they are taking a different direction with the character. One of the producers has told Coming Soon, that the book they have in mind is The Parsifal Mosaic. Written by Ludlum, but not about Jason Bourne.
I haven't read it, but it seems to revolve around a US intelligence agent, who witnesses the death of his partner. She also happens to be his girlfriend, and a suspected KGB double agent. He then finds himself investigating his girlfriends background, and uncovering a few surprises. There is also some political intrigue thrown in.
Despite not being a Bourne novel, it sounds like it has all the hallmarks. And plenty of opportunities for Richard's favourite shaky cam. No Matt Damon onboard officially yet though, he is waiting for a script.
Anybody read the book? Is it Bourne enough for Bourne?
