Next 'Bourne' lands scribe

George Nolfi to pen fourth installment of franchise

Universal has tapped scribe George Nolfi to pen the fourth installment of the studio's multimillion-dollar Jason Bourne franchise.

Nolfi co-wrote 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum" with Scott Z. Burns and the story's creator Tony Gilroy, which brought in $443 million at the boxoffice worldwide and is one of the studio's top-grossing films of all time.

While the trilogy of Bourne films were adapted from Robert Ludlum's books, the fourth will be based on an original story.

Paul Greengrass, who directed the last two Bourne films, and Matt Damon are also attached to the new film.

Frank Marshall is producing, with Jeffrey Weiner and Henry Morrison executive producing.

The WMA-repped Nolfi's credits include "The Sentinel" and "Ocean's Twelve."
