I got the train into Waterloo this morning and as soon as I got off platform 10 I noticed that the crew from The Bourne Ultimatum were filming there today.
I saw director Paul Greengrass in discussion with actor Paddy Considine and later on noticed Matt Damon and producer Frank Marshall. They were filming there last October so maybe they are back to do pickup shots.
What struck me was how laidback (yet professional) the whole thing was. Despite the presence of a big star and one of England’s best directors, commuters went about their business as usual without causing any fuss.
Here are some pictures:

The film is the third Bourne film (after 2002’s The Bourne Identity and 2004’s The Bourne Supremacy) and is scheduled for release later this year on August 3rd.
