Oh ok, sorry, now I gotcha! My apologies for sounding snippy (if I did).
No worries - I believe that if you don't ask, you will never know Happy

I hope that the fights scenes that make into the next film are actually watchable.

isn't shaky-cam a way to hide the fact that there is a complete lack of action?
My wife has an eye condition where her eyes shake - this can be good and bad...
There's a bunch of Clancy stuff in development, including Rainbox Six and Splinter Cell. Although, I don't know if I want to see another Jack Ryan movie. Sum of All Fears was terrible and so was Affleck in the role.
Supremacy was one of my favorites of last year (I actually liked the style) so I'm glad he's returning. Damon doesn't get enough credit for what he brought to that role. I find it interesting that both he and Affleck (The Sum of All Fears) starred in their own action (franchise) flicks around the same time but it's Damon (not someone one would picture as an action star) who came out on top.

Off-topic, but will Jack Ryan ever return to the big screen or is that Tom Clancy character done now?
The music in both movies were outstanding too, I hope all the major crew returns to keep the cohesion of the previous movies.
Always thought Damon didn't get enough love for the Bourne films. I think he's a fantastic Jason Bourne.
both were excellant and its great news that they are doing Ultimatum. . the shaky cam thing didnt bother me at all.
i've got both films on dvd and I still haven't seen them.

I really liked the gritty, documentary feel of Supremacy. Thought it was a much better film too. Really looking forward to the third one now.
Never saw the second one yet, but I have seen the original and that was pretty good. I want to get to watch Supremacy sometime this weekend.
Shaky cam annoys me a little but it seems to be en vogue with action films these days.  Didn't put me off Bourne Supremacy.
I guess I am the only one that hated Supremacy because of shaky cam man.  I'm not sure I can sit through either re-watching the Supremacy or seeing the Ultimatum because of that.  Interesting story, horrible execution.
I liked the shots and overall style to supremecy. I can't wait for another sequel. They are what Bond should have been the last few years.
Ah, shaky-cam man! Preferred the first film to be honest. Damon makes a good secret agent.
The Bourne movies are superb. I'm really glad that they are in fact making this one. I liked the first one a lot, "Supremacy" was a different kind of good if you all know what I mean. So if either Greengrass or Liman directs it's bound to be good (to me anyway).
I thought Bourne Supremacy was much better than the first flick, as far as style. But this news doesn't really concern me though, I want to hear that he's been given the chance to direct The Watchmen.
Paul Greengrass to Direct Bourne Ultimatum
I just saw this news item.  Am I the only one that thought that Greengrass was the problem with the Bourne Supremacy.  The editing/direction of that movie gave me motion sickness.
