The Bourne Ultimatum returns to Waterloo

The Bourne Ultimatum crew have been filming at Waterloo Station again.

I passed through the station yesterday afternoon as I was on my way to see Spider-Man 3 (more of which later) and I couldn’t help but take some more photos, especially as my post on the filming back in January is the most popular in the history of this site.

As I got off the train, I saw a crowd gathered near platform 9 and it seemed to be similar to the scene being filmed before. What appeared to be Matt Damon’s stunt double raced by me and several policemen (well, actors not real ones) then ran in the opposite direction. I have a feeling they are running to the scene of an ‘incident’.

Like before, the extras mingled pretty seamlessly with public. Maybe the effect the film makers are going for is the raw, hand held approach that worked so well in the second film.

Below are some pictures.

This is a scene where something happens at the station and the crowd gathers as Jason Bourne runs away.

The Bourne Ultimatum opens in the US on August 8th and in the UK on August 17th.
