Bourne Legacy filming in Manila, Philippines cancelled
In a press release statement according to sowhatsnews.wordpress.com, Universal Pictures expressed their disappointment with what the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) did – they cleaned up the planned shooting locations that Universal Pictures have specifically chosen which “detracts the ambiance that the movie is aiming for.”

The fourth “Bourne” movie filming is expected to start on January 14, 2012 in locations in the Philippines such as in Intramuros Manila, Navotas Fishport, Marikina Market, San Andres Market, Ramon Magsaysay Boulevard, Ayala Avenue, Nagtahan, Pasay Taft, and Jones Bridge according to MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino
