Director Paul Greengrass insists his Jason Bourne movies offer a more lasting legacy than the James Bond franchise, because the audience identifies more closely with Matt Damon's action hero. The movie-maker is just starting work on the series' third movie, THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, and is flattered 007 producers are making a conscious effort to transform the suave superspy into a grittier character. He says, "Well, you know what they say? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. That's honestly what I think. I think there's a big difference between James Bond and Jason Bourne. "I think James Bond is the secret agent who likes being a secret agent and likes killing people. He's a misogynist, an old-fashioned imperialist, and Jason Bourne is an outsider on the run and he's one of us and he's fighting against them, I think. That's the profound difference, and that's why I like Bourne."
