In 2002, an unexpected hero was born with the release of THE BOURNE IDENTITY—the big screen version of Robert Ludlum's best-selling novel that had at its center a trained assassin attempting to recover his memory while evading shadowy figures from his past. The edgy and sophisticated espionage thriller featured a towering, against-type performance from Matt Damon as Jason Bourne.
Now, following the smash worldwide success of THE BOURNE IDENTITY, Universal Pictures brings the second installment of Ludlum's series to the screen with Matt Damon returning as trained assassin Jason Bourne in THE BOURNE SUPREMACY.
Two years ago, Jason Bourne thought he had walked away from his past.
But now, his past is about to return.
Bourne and Marie (Franka Potente) have maintained their anonymous, underground existence at the cost of permanence. Fueled by splintered nightmares and haunted by a past he cannot remember, Bourne moves Marie from city to city, trying to remain one step ahead of the threat implicit in every unexplained stranger's glance, every "wrong number" phone call...that at any second, without any warning, he might get pulled back into the world he hopes he left behind.
When an operative appears in the sleepy village that has been their latest home, Bourne and Marie collapse their lives and head out. His past at the door, their only choice is now to run.
But once a line is crossed and the stakes in a new global game of cat-and-mouse are raised, the Jason Bourne created by Treadstone—the covert, now dismantled operation that spawned cold-blooded, professional assassins—returns.
Two years ago, Bourne walked away from the deadly world that created him with a promise of retaliation should anyone attempt contact. Now that that world has indeed come calling, Bourne intends to keep his word.
They should have left him alone.
Matt Damon returns as Jason Bourne in THE BOURNE SUPREMACY, which re-enters the shadowy world of the expert assassin who continues to find himself plagued by painful flashes of memory from his former life. THE BOURNE SUPREMACY continues the story of the reformed killer and picks up the thread of unanswered questions posed in the international hit THE BOURNE IDENTITY.
Returning to the memorable roles they created in THE BOURNE IDENTITY are Franka Potente as Marie; Brian Cox, once again as agency operative Ward Abbott; Julia Stiles, portraying Nicky; and Gabriel Mann as Danny Zorn. Joining the cast of THE BOURNE SUPREMACY are Tom Gallop (A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) as Tom Cronin, Karl Urban (THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy) as rival assassin Kirill and triple Academy Award® nominee Joan Allen (THE CONTENDER, NIXON) as Agent Pamela Landy.
Compelling use of exotic worldwide locations and the muscular cinematic edge brought by vanguard director Paul Greengrass (writer/director of the award-winning BLOODY SUNDAY) maintain the aggressive style and fresh, non-traditional perspective established in THE BOURNE IDENTITY. Tony Gilroy (THE BOURNE IDENTITY) writes the screenplay, based on Robert Ludlum's book of the same name.
