‘Bourne Identity’ film scenes to be shot in PHL
Some scenes from the upcoming fourth installment of the “Bourne Identity” series of movies will be shot in the Philippines, Oscar-nominated John Sayles said.
Sayles disclosed the plan to Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Cuisia Jr. during a recent call in connection with the Filipino film “Amigo.”
“He informed the Ambassador that some scenes in the fourth installment of ‘Bourne Identity’ will be filmed on location in the Philippines in January,” the Philippine Embassy said in a news release.
Sayles also said he wished that more films about the history of the Philippines, in particular the establishment of the Philippine republic, will be made.
The Bourne series of spy films started in 2002, and loosely based on Robert Ludlum’s novel.
A sequel, “The Bourne Supremacy,” was shown in 2004, while the third installment, “The Bourne Ultimatum,” was shown in 2007. Sayles had worked on the film Amigo, a Philippine movie on the Philippine-American war in the early 1900s.
