‘Bourne’ sequel preps for Babelsberg shoot

Damon starrer is third major H'w'd prod'n for studio

BERLIN — “The Bourne Supremacy,” which is set to secure financing from Germany’s Hannover Leasing film fund, is set to start shooting at Studio Babelsberg outside Berlin in coming weeks.

Paul Greengrass’ follow-up to Universal’s 2002 hit “The Bourne Identity” will lense in Berlin and other German locations through February after its shoot in Russia.

Henning Molfenter, head of production at Studio Babelsberg Motion Pictures, is associate producer on the Matt Damon starrer. It’s the third major Hollywood production for Babelsberg after “Around the World in 80 Days” and last year’s “The Pianist.”

Hannover, meanwhile, is partnering with U on six features that may include Sydney Pollack’s “The Interpreter,” starring Nicole Kidman. The fund company, which in the past has partnered with 20th Century Fox and New Line and helped finance two of the “Lord of the Rings” films, has raised some $266 million via its Montranus Beteiligungs tax-sheltering investment vehicle.

Hannover will present U’s “The Skeleton Key” and Paul and Chris Weitz’s “Synergy” to its investors at a Dec. 17 meeting, where the project slate will be determined.
