'The Parsifal Mosaic' and 'Bourne 4' Are Likely Two Different Films


Universal Pictures reportedly are negotiating for the screen rights to Robert Ludlum's novel 'The Parsifal Mosaic', which has been suggested to potentially be the source of fourth 'Bourne' film story.

"The Parsifal Mosaic", and the fourth installment of "Bourne" series, "Untitled Bourne 4 Project", could end up being two separate movies. The speculations rose to the surface after Variety reported that Universal Pictures are in talks for screen rights to "Mosaic", the espionage thriller novel from author Robert Ludlum.

While "Mosaic" is shaped up to be the first major project produced by Captivate Entertainment, the company that controls screen rights to Ludlum novels, the trade reported that Universal will be using an original idea for the fourth "Bourne" film. The report contradicted the remark made by "Bourne 4" producer Frank Marshall earlier, which suggested that the new "Bourne" film could use "Mosaic" as its source material.

"The Parsifal Mosaic" revolves around a U.S. intelligence agent who thinks he witnesses the execution of his lover, who was identified as a KGB double agent. After he retires, he learns that she may still be alive. In his attempts to find her and unravel a conspiracy, he becomes involved in an effort to track down Parsifal, a shadowy figure behind a blackmail scheme.

The negotiation for "Mosaic" report came hot on the heels of the news that Tom Cruise is in talks to star in another Robert Ludlum novel adaptation, "The Matarese Circle". Universal are expected to put the film on a fast track. Meanwhile, details of "Bourne 4" are still coming back and forth.
