Josh Zetumer, scribe of Peter Berg’s upcoming “Dune” redo, has been snapped up by Universal to pen the third sequel to “The Bourne Identity”.

You’ll recall that George Nolfi was initially onboard the project as scribe, but he’s knee-deep in [another Matt Damon flick] “The Adjustment Bureau”, of which he’s the writer and director, and as Universal wants to get the new “Bourne” off-the-ground as soon as possible, he’s had to hand over the Remington to someone else

The Hollywood Reporter says it is unclear what will occur after Zetumer submits his draft or whether his script will be integrated with Nolfi’s.

“Our hope is that Nolfi, a key member of the ‘Bourne’ team, will return after he is done with ‘The Adjustment Bureau,’ ” a Universal spokesperson said.

Writing two scripts, though rare, is not without precedent in the tentpole movie world. “Star Trek: Generations,” “Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer” and “Wolverine” are movies that had parallel scripts commissioned and sometimes had them combined. “Conan,” still in development, is another project that falls into that category.

Frank Marshall and Jeffrey Weiner are producing the latest “Bourne” instalment, which will see Matt Damon reprising his role as the amnesiac super-spy.

Aside from the abovementioned “Dune”, Zetumer penned “The Infiltrator”, which Leonardo Di Caprio is attached to.
