Bourne Legacy: Manila Locations

Thursday, January 05, 2012

Recently, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Francis Tolentino said in an interview that the Bourne series part 4 will be shot in different location here in Manila. 

He reportedly said The Bourne Legacy will be filming for a month and the places for the shoot will be Intramuros and Navotas Fishport among others such as Marikina Market, San Andres Market, Ramon Magsaysay Boulevard, Ayala Avenue, Nagtahan, Pasay Taft, and Jones Bridge.

Tolentino did not confirm whether or not a report that the shooting will start on January 14, 2012 is true. But chances are they will shoot the movie mid week to first week of February.

Several sources say The Bourne Legacy will be written and directed by Tony Gilroy. It topbills Oscar-nominated actor Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) as new CIA operative Aaron Cross. The film also stars Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz.

The Bourne films are a series of action thriller spy films based on the character Jason Bourne, a former CIA assassin suffering from extreme memory loss, created by author Robert Ludlum. All three of Ludlum's novels were adapted for the screen, featuring Matt Damon as the titular character in each. Doug Liman directed The Bourne Identity (2002), Paul Greengrass directed The Bourne Supremacy (2004) and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), and Tony Gilroy co-wrote each film. The series is noted for its realism, in contrast to the growing use of CGI in the action genre.

How I wish I can see them in person and have an autograph from them especially Jeremy Runner and Rachel Weisz :)

More about the latest movie:

"Matt Damon will not be involved in any more parts of the Bourne franchise".
Incorrect. Damon stated that he would like to be in the Bourne movies again in the future, and that even if this movie doesn't do well, they could still make another staring Damon and forget about legacy. So, just because he isn't in this one movie, that doesn't mean that he won't be in the rest of the entire series. This movie had a deadline before a script was even finished, so both the director and Damon walked out.
