Ludlum Material Likely Source for Fourth Bourne Film

Last month, I mentioned that Universal had signed a deal that gave them first look rights to all material in the Ludlum library.

It looks like they are going to take advantage of that in their search for the plotline for the fourth Jason Bourne film.

Coming Soon spoke with producer Frank Marshall, who revealed the plans for that film:

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

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

“The Parsifal Mosiac,” not a “Bourne” adventure as a novel, deals with a U.S. spy who falls in love with another spy who is revealed to be a double agent just before her death. When he retires from the business, though, the spy learns that she may still be alive and sets out to learn the truth.”

The Parsifal Mosaic came out in 1982 and was Ludlum’s first novel after The Bourne Identity.
