ludlumtheparsifalmosaic-120808Producer Frank Marshall revealed to ComingSoon.net that since they now have access to the entire library of Robert Ludlum, the late-author’s novel The Parsifal Mosaic may be one of the potential sources of material for the next film:

Question: Would you want to do a straight adaptation from one of the novels?

Frank Marshall: Actually, there is. “The Parsifal Mosaic” is one that we like.

Marshall also said that Matt Damon hasn’t signed on yet, and in fact, he and the writer (George Nolfi) are the only two signed on.

Here’s some of the plot summary of The Parsifal Mosaic via Wikipedia:

Michael Havelock, (an anglicized version of Mikhail Havlíček), is an intelligence agent in the United States. At the beginning of the novel he believes he has just witnessed the execution of his partner and the love of his life, Jenna Karas (anglicized version of Jenna Karasova) along an isolated stretch of the Costa Brava. Jenna had been marked for execution because she had been proved to be a KGB double agent.

Producer Frank Marshall revealed to IESB that the plan is begin shooting the fourth Jason Bourne movie next summer, for release in 2010.  As reported back in February, director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon are set to return.  Marshall also confirmed that they’ll probably be creating an original story for the movie (predicting that Bourne will be headed to South America), since creator/author Robert Ludlum only wrote three books and wasn’t involved in the later books in the series:

IESB: The Bourne series, are we going to see another one?

Frank Marshall: Oh absolutely, Bourne 4…Hopefully we’re going to be shooting next summer for release in 2010.

IESB: Do you know which way the story is headed, is it going to be the next book?

FM: No actually, there was a fourth book written, but it was not by Mr. Ludlum, so we’re probably going to take our own direction, and we’re working on what that storyline is going to be right now.

Though he wouldn’t reveal any plot details, Marshall did say that the story would likely take place in South America.
