The Bourne Supremacy is a 2004 action spy thriller film starring Robert Ludlum‘s Jason Bourne character. Though it takes the name of the second Bourne novel, its plot is entirely different. The film — directed by Paul Greengrass from a screenplay by Tony Gilroy — is the second in the Jason Bourne film series and it is preceded by The Bourne Identity and followed by The Bourne Ultimatum, The Bourne Legacy, and Jason Bourne.
The Bourne Supremacy continues the story of Jason Bourne, a former CIA assassin suffering from psychogenic amnesia. Bourne is portrayed by Matt Damon. The film focuses on his attempt to learn more of his past as he is once more enveloped in a conspiracy involving the CIA and Operation Treadstone. It also stars Brian Cox, Joan Allen, and Julia Stiles.
