Out doing promotions for the upcoming “The Bourne Ultimatum” DVD, producer Frank Marshall spoke to Coming Soon a little more about a potential fourth film in the series and seemed more optimistic than before.
“There were only three books written. I know they’ve written a fourth but it wasn’t written by Ludlum. Look, we would love to continue the franchise. We just need a great story, and we’re not going to do it unless we have a great story, but we are working on coming up with one, and Matt said to me, ‘Look, you hand me a great script, I’m in.’ Unfortunately, we’re not able to do any writing at the moment, but we’re all thinking about it” said Marshall.
He also had some comments on the upcoming “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”: “What we’ve done is we moved it from the ’40s to the ’50s so we’re acknowledging that everybody’s 10 or 15 years older and it plays into the story. We’re not trying to hide that Harrison’s older, but we have Shia LaBeouf coming in as his sidekick, so we’ve got a young element. The best way to describe the movie is that it’s an Indiana Jones movie. It’s got all the style and elements of the old movies, and we’re not really trying to do anything different. You’re going to see a teaser poster later this month.”
He also claims they’re still aiming for a fourth “Jurassic Park” to come out in Summer 2009, but are waiting for the strike to end to further work on the script.
