The Bourne Ultimatum

Not that I didn't like the last two Bourne movies - I did, and very much so.  However, they had absolutely nothing to do with the Ludlum books.  None of the characters (except Bourne himself), none of the scenarios, none of the locations, none of the intracacies, etc. found in the books made it to the screen.  The movies had totally different story lines.  I've never come across this before and don't know why it was done, or why Ludlum and the Ludlum estate permitted it. 

I do believe that the Bourne Supremacy, if filmed AS WRITTEN, would make a great TV miniseries.  I hope that one of the movie networks such as HBO would do this someday.   There's enough action and background - real background - in the books to satisfy anyone, especially the passionate Bourne fans.  It would probably have to be a six or eight hour project.

Anyone else who read the books who would agree?
