Jason Bourne Series by Robert Ludlum
The Bourne films are a series of American action films based on the character Jason Bourne , a CIA assassin suffering from dissociative amnesia who must figure out who he is,  created by author Robert Ludlum. All three of Ludlum's novels were adapted for the screen , featuring Matt Damon as the title character in each. Damon chose not to return for the fourth film, The Bourne Legacy , which introduces a new main character, Aaron Cross Jeremy Renner , a Department of Defense operative who runs for his life because of Bourne's actions in Ultimatum. The character of Jason Bourne does not appear in Legacy , but mention of his name and pictures of Damon as Bourne are shown throughout the film. Unlike many contemporary action series, it is distinguished by its use of real stunt work, in contrast to the growing use of computer-generated imagery in action scenes. A man is found floating in the Mediterranean Sea with two gunshot wounds in his back and a device with the number of a Swiss safe deposit box embedded in his hip. Upon reaching shore, the man assumes the name Jason Bourne after finding a passport under that name in the safe deposit box, along with other alien passports, large amounts of assorted currencies, and a gun.
