'The Bourne Ultimatum' Location Map - Tracking Jason Bourne Across Seven Countries

29 April 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ending the Bourne trilogy with a jolt, director Paul Greengrass delivers the most widespread installment yet with The Bourne Ultimatum. Picking up where The Bourne Supremacy left off, with Bourne bleeding in Moscow, the action then finds us visiting locales in France, England, Spain, Morocco and finally the U.S. This was easily the most challenging map of the three to make, primarily because I almost tried to map the entire sequence in London's Waterloo Station and because once the action moves to Tangier, Morocco it was nearly impossible to find any of the locations used as streets didn't seem to exist and there is no Google street view in the city. Nevertheless, I try to make as much sense of all the commotion as possible to the point I was even able to locate one of the slight turns Bourne makes in New York while being chased by Paz »

'The Bourne Supremacy' Location Map - Tracking Jason Bourne from India to Germany, Russia and the U.S.

28 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jason Bourne returned to theaters in 2004 with Paul Greengrass at the helm of The Bourne Supremacy and the franchise and action films would never be the same again. Some may argue Greengrass' decision to use handheld camera work, what is now not-so-affectionately-referred-to-as "shaky cam", was a detriment to cinema as others tried to mimic it, but I think it's safe to say it will never be duplicated. Greeengrass brought a third person feel to his shooting and in putting together the location maps for not only Supremacy, but also The Bourne Ultimatum (map coming tomorrow) offered up an interesting task. It was almost like I became a cinematic detective as Greengrass goes wide and tight with so many of his shots. I was having to go through the movie frame-by-frame at times, searching for clues, street signs and business signs in hopes of nailing down the exact location for some »

'The Bourne Identity' Location Map - Tracking Jason Bourne from Italy to Prague, France & Greece

27 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can still remember going to see The Bourne Identity with a friend in 2002 and coming out incredibly charged. In fact, six months later I would end up starting this website and before I ever made the movie location map for Collateral, the Bourne trilogy was going to be my first movie map. Well, three years later, the time has finally arrived. Today we will make our way through Doug Liman's introduction to Jason Bourne, the title character played by Matt Damon that would spawn two direct sequels, one spin-off and a fifth film on the way. Identity is just the start, offering locations in Italy, Prague, France and finally Greece, as this is a franchise that takes us all over the globe. Just below are links to maps for The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, which take us to India, Germany, Russia, Madrid, Morocco and, of course, »

What I Watched, What You Watched #293

26 April 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This week I started work on a feature I'll be publishing this coming week related to the Bourne trilogy, which meant I had to watch The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum and then, on top of that, I only watched The Water Diviner in theaters, which made for a rather standard week of movie watching. In addition to movies, though, I am one chapter away from finishing Dennis Lehane's "The Given Day", which is the first book in his Joe Coughlin series of novels, the second of which is "Live by Night", which Ben Affleck will be bringing to the big screen and the third book in the trilogy is "World Gone By", which actually just came out last month. I can't wait to get my hands on that one, though before that I am going to dive into some Ian Fleming novels. I've never »

15 of the most unnecessary sequels ever made

25 April 2015 8:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some movies leave fans hungry for more, with films like "The Godfather," "Star Wars," "Lethal Weapon" and "The Bourne Identity" tailor-made for sequelization. However, Hollywood has a depressingly long track record of truly unnecessary sequels. The previous weekend brought us "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," and we thought it was the perfect time to take a look at 16 of the least necessary sequels ever made. »

'John Wick' Directors to Helm Valiant Comic Adaptation 'Bloodshot'

22 April 2015 1:16 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In case you hadn't heard, Valiant Entertainment is gearing up to begin their own cinematic universe, and they're beginning with a five picture deal at Sony Pictures that will kick off with adaptations of their Bloodshot and Harbinger comics. The former will be the first to arrive, with an eye towards being released sometime in 2017, and THR reveals John Wick directing duo David Leitch & Chad Stahelski will be at the helm with a script from Kick-Ass 2 scribe Jeff Wadlow and The Thing remake writer Eric Heisserer. Even if you're not interested in Valiant comics, it's Leitch and Stahelski directing is great. For those who don't know, Bloodshot follows a soldier brought back from the dead by a secret government agency and turned into an unstoppable killing machine with no memory, not unlike a fantastical version of The Bourne Identity or a less hellish version of Spawn. This project has »

Julia Stiles hopes for Bourne return: 'I would love to be a part of it'

25 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Julia Stiles has said that she is hopeful of returning for the next Bourne movie.

Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon will both return for their first entry in the franchise since 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum.

Bourne film will not include Matt Damon, Jeremy Renner crossover

Stiles famously played Treadstone operative Nicky Parsons in 2002's The Bourne Identity, and later appeared in sequels.

The actress recently told reporters that she "would love" to reprise her role as Parsons in the next Bourne movie.

"Yeah, they're writing it now so I'm hoping that my character fits into the storyline somehow," she said.

"But Matt and Paul have so much integrity that they waited a long time before making another one, for many reasons, but largely because they wanted a good story there.

"And they're so much fun to shoot, I would love to be a part of it."

Jaimie Alexander Finds NBC’s Blindspot

19 February 2015 8:10 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the Peacock Network: Thor actress Jaimie Alexander is finally stepping up into the spotlight, as the lead in NBC pilot Blindspot.

An action-thriller in the vein of The Bourne Identity and Memento, the series will focus on a beautiful “Jane Doe” who finds herself at the center of an FBI investigation when she awakens inside a duffel bag in the middle of Times Square in New York City with no idea who she is or what the tattoos covering her body signify. Using clues found on her body, FBI agents begin to piece together a larger conspiracy.

Mark Pellington (The Mothman Files) is set to direct the pilot episode, working from a script by Martin Gero (Stargate: Atlantis).

Blindspot certainly sounds like an intriguing star vehicle for Alexander, who has been looking for a way to establish herself as a leading actress for some »

Box Office Democracy: “Kingsman: The Secret Service”

17 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is, hopefully, a watershed moment for spy action movies. Much in the way The Bourne Identity did in 2002, Kingsman has such a fresh new take on the genre that it begs to be the new standard these films are compared to. Kingsman could have so easily been the lazy bit of satire I feared it would be in the run up to the movie and it avoided nearly all of the pitfalls that could have felled it. It did step in to one big pit and while it put a bit of a crimp in my enjoyment of the movie it was at least a spectacular and bold piece of failure and I suppose tasteless and vexing is always better than boring.

Matthew Vaughn directs action sequences in Kingsman that are nothing short of brilliant. He shoots action with wider angles and without cuts like they »

First Trailer for 'Hitman: Agent 47' is Full of Crazy Action & Cliches

11 February 2015 7:30 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He's an engineered human being. Strong. Faster. And more intelligent than normal people." Imagine if The Bourne Identity was a mindless action movie. You should be picturing this first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47, the latest attempt to bring the popular video game franchise to the big screen. This time, Rupert Friend plays the title assassin who starts to learn about his origins in the middle of a bunch of explosions and crazy action. This just looks like cookie-cutter silliness, but enough so that it might be fun. However, the script just sounds awful even from the little dialogue in the film, with one egregious theft form Watchmen. Here's the first trailer for Aleksander Bach's Hitman: Agent 47, originally from Apple: Hitman: Agent 47 is directed by Aleksander Bach, making his feature directorial debut with a script from Kyle Ward (Machete Kills), Skip Woods (The A-Team) and Michael Finch »

Thn Talks ‘Badge Of Honor’ With Lochlyn Munro

9 February 2015 9:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Lochlyn Munro may not be an immediately recognisable name but the Canadian actor has certainly been a prominent face in mainstream media since his breakout in the late 90s. You’ll know him best for his comedic appearances in A Night At The Roxbury, Scary Movie and White Chicks but the talented star has also featured in 21 Jump Street, Charmed, SmallvilleCastle and Arrow.

To celebrate the release of the new crime-thriller Badge Of Honor, we were fortunate enough to speak to Munro about the film, his past roles and his brilliantly diverse career.

Lochlyn: Hello, this is Lochlyn.

Thn: Hello Lochlyn, this is The Hollywood News. It’s a pleasure to be talking with you, I’m a huge fan!

Lochlyn: Oh well thanks, thanks! It must be a bit late for you out there, huh?

Thn: Yes, it’s actually 1 am here but I’m a bit of a night owl! »

‘Agent X,’ ‘The Farm,’ ‘Genies’ Receiving California Tax Credits

5 February 2015 5:08 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A pair of upcoming cable series — TNT’s “Agent X” and USA’s “The Farm” — have been selected to receive production tax credits worth a combined $12.5 million from the state of California.

Paramount feature “Genies,” also known as “Children of the Lamp,” has also been selected for a $7.4 million credit from the California Film Tax Credit program for the 2014-15 fiscal year after moving off the waiting list. To receive the credit, production must start in California within 180 days of notification from the state.

Two studio movies that had been slated to receive allocations have been dropped from the program — New Line’s comedy “Mean Moms,” which had been in line for a $6.7 million credit, and Fox’s Beach Boys biopic “All Summer Long,” which had been set to receive a $7.7 million credit.

It’s not uncommon for waiting-list projects to wind up with the credit, which provides up to 25% of qualified expenditures. »
