Op de websites CHUD en Coming Soon staan quotes van de regisseur:
CHUD: When I was honest with myself last Autumn, and I was starting to get going on other things, you just come to a point where you realize youve done it. You dont have anything more to contribute to a franchise that needs to continue obviously, and in order to continue, a franchise needs to be rebooted and reenergized by new perspectives.
Coming Soon: I think they have a good way to do a prequel with someone else, and basically make it about the Bourne identity, the actual identity. Any studio is interested in making it an evergreen that can just go on and on and on, and it never will with our character because hes resolved his issues now. Hes got his memory back three times now. I dont think anybody wants to see me say I dont remember again, but I think what we could do is that you can do some movies with another actor, anyone, whether its Ryan Gosling or Russell Crowe or Denzel Washington, and hes Jason Bourne, and at the end of his one or two or three movies, you see them getting ready to pass the identity onto me, so it just becomes like a 007, it becomes the name that they give this certain person who is uniquely positioned.
De termen reboot en prequel zijn gevallen. Hier weet Hollywood tegenwoordig wel raad mee!
