Universal Hatching Sequels For Bourne With Renner And Weisz, Ted With… That Bear

According to their CEO Steve Burke, the plan at Universal Pictures is to produce more animation and more franchised sequel strings. In the cases of Despicable Me 2 and the upcoming Minions spin-off picture, they’ll be clipping both of those birds at once.

Heading up their sequel scheme is a plan for a Ted follow-up. Burke told The Hollywood Reporter that the studio want to get that film going “as soon as we can.”

And there’s going to be more in the Bourne series too. Speaking with Coming Soon, producer Frank Marshall clarified that the next Bourne will continue to follow our two new leads:

We’re gonna follow Jeremy’s character. Everything else is wide open. That’s the great thing about this now. The table is set to go any direction we want to. But we will, I’m sure, follow Jeremy and see what happens. Jeremy and Rachel [Weisz].

Presumably because they’re already under contract, and very attractive to audiences.

I hope they bring Tony Gilroy back too. Legacy wasn’t Michael Clayton, but neither were Identity, Supremacy or Ultimatum.
