Tony Gilroy, the main screenwriter of the earlier Bourne films, was hired by the studio to write a draft of the script to The Bourne Ultimatum (2007). Universal green-lit the film based on the draft, but Gilroy didn't do any revisions or rewrites because he was committed to his directing debut Michael Clayton (2007). In 2011 actor Matt Damon accused Gilroy for writing a quick draft for money and then leaving the project in turmoil. Damon called the original draft "unreadable" and potential "career-ender" for Gilroy, also saying that Gilroy arbitrated to get sole screenwriting credit before the movie came out (the Writers Guild of America turned the request down). Later Damon said it was "idiotic" for him to "blurt out" anything about the subject, since it was between himself and Gilroy (either they figure it out, or won't). In 2012 Gilroy said that he and Damon haven't spoken to each other "in years", although Gilroy later co-wrote The Great Wall (2016) which starred Damon. See more »

The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) Review: After a thrilling set of two, we get the final installment. Here's my take:
The Bourne Ultimatum has it all. We have Jason Bourne(Matt Damon) on the coattails of the ones who know everything. He has been running for too long. This time, it ends.
The Bourne Ultimatum has a great plot, awesome writing, fantastic direction, suspense, and some of the best action of the summer. Matt Damon delivers possibly his best performance to date. He has the conviction and swelling desire of the troubled assassin.
There are some intelligent humor here and some fine suspense. The reactions to certain events will have you either laughing(in a good way) or cheering on. (or both) I heard a lot of intelligent laughter in the theater and lots of clapping. The audience was loving it.
The Bourne Ultimatum delivers all in a nicely gift-wrapped package. All of the goods and then some. This is, in my opinion the best movie this summer.
The Last Word: Excellent conclusion. The best of the trilogy. This is how summer movie thrillers should be done. I love the Bourne trilogy.
