Rob’s Supremacy is Bourne?

29 Oct

By:  Parisienne

We’ve all seen Matt Damon grace the screen as Jason Bourne and as this part of Matt’s career takes a turn, Robert Pattinson may replace him.  According to an online article, Rob may be replacing Matt as Jason Bourne in the next film of the franchise.  Do you think that Rob has what it takes to add this character to his resume of film roles?  In my opinion, he has the charisma and dedication to play any film role that he chooses.  If he is cast in this role, do you think that it would help or hurt his career?

    Well the Bourne series is another franchise. Rob’s been in the TW franchise and HP franchise so he knows what those are about if he were to sign on. I guess it depends on how they want to take the story. Would Rob excel in an action movie picture?

      I think Rob could introduce a new kind of action hero. I really like Christian Bale as Batman in Dark Knight. Very complex a little cerebral yet calculating and mysterious. Rob could definitely pull this off with no problem.

        The existing franchise fans will have to like his portrayal of the character in order to continue to support the franchise. So he definitely needs to bring his own ideas but he has to be believable to sell it.

          Yes! Actually, I would interesting to see Rob play a good guy gone bad.

          This will be interesting to see how this all goes down and who they select. However, Rob has my vote if the script and marketing is bullet proof.

    I think with the write script, Rob could definitely do the series. However, I don’t think it should be an exact replica of the Bourne Character we’ve seen from Matt. I think the character needs to be more cerebral.

      And my question is could he sell it? I guess depending on the script. However, we’ve seen other actors step into the shoes of an existing character (James Bond) and still make him believable. THe basic premise is that he’s a young trained operative – Rob can pull that off.

        Yes! It’s all in the marketing. The marketing needs to be spot on.

        I think if they sell the movie as a stand alone project it could revitalize the franchise. But it has to be tailored made for Rob or for anyone they decide to go with. I mean it has to embody the essence of who that actor is to some degree and then bring it to the character.

          That’s an interesting comment. How do you think they will pull off the change in characters for Spiderman? Tobey MaGuire and Andrew Garfield? Maybe that could be an indication of how you could spin the different actors?

            Well that is going different movie than what we’ve seen from Tobey. They are going to go back to the original story to develop this franchise. Meaning Spiderman as a teenager, high school student etc…. This will be totally new. So I see it working.

              Well that was sort of what they did with the Tom Clancy The Sum of all Fears movie. In the book the timeline the main character is older. But in order to get Ben Affleck to play Jack Ryan they had to change a few things about the characters’ timeline but not the story. So they could do that and still make it so that a new actor can tackle the part. I see that working pretty well for Spiderman too. I think that has been what has always made James Bond work so well, the stories are standalone events not so much a history timeline that they have to pursue.

            I would like to continue this conversation on the Unviversal Bourne Legacy article.
