Stiles Talks ‘Bourne Ultimatum’


While doing press rounds for the upcoming remake The Omen, Julia Stiles told that she will indeed be in the third installment of the Bourne series, The Bourne Ultimatum.

Stiles was quoted saying, “I’m going to be in it… Paul Greengrass is going to direct it. Matt Damon and Joan Allen are going to be back too, and it’s going through so many incarnations of scripts. I think I was lucky to not die in the last one, but I just don’t know if I’m going to be good or bad.”

She talked more about her character saying, “I really liked that you didn’t know what I was doing in the first one… and then luckily for me, they decided to explore my character a little bit more in the second one, and now hopefully, more in the third one. You feel like it’s a trilogy that is complete. It’s not just one movie and then another, and then another. Characters you didn’t pay much attention to in the first one, you realize they are much more significant as the trilogy goes on. It’s also a work in progress, too. That’s part of the reason why I can’t explain what exactly my role is going to be in this one, because what’s great about Paul Greengrass is he’s really good at updating those stories so it’s not going to be anything like what the book was. I’ve seen a first draft, and then Tom Stoppard is doing [rewrites]. It’ll be much more about current events, which I think is much more interesting.”
