Re-Bourne

I personally love the Jason Bourne trilogy by Robert Ludlum. And when the first book was made into a movie, I loved it even more. I totally buy Matt Damon as the amnesiatic title character. Seeing the latest installment, The Bourne Ultimatum, is on my to-do list. With this movie, comes the end to Ludlum's series (even though author Eric Van Lustbader wrote two more Bourne novels, The Bourne Legacy and The Bourne Betrayal).

Given that, it's almost impossible to NOT come up with a few more titles to possible future installments as the Bourne series grows:

Bourne to Be Wild - Jason Bourne wakes up in a Nairobian hut and needs to fight his way across the jungles of Africa.

Bourne Free - the follow up to Bourne to Be Wild, Jason has since tamed an elephant, cheetah, zebra, hyena, and gnu to live in peace and assist him on his journeys.

Bourne Ready - returning from Africa, Jason sits at Gate B34 at Kenosha Regional Airport, just waiting for something to do.

Bourne in the USA - in this two-parter, Jason awakens on a bench in Asbury Park, NJ, and he has no idea where that is.

Bourne to Run - Figuring he can't do any worse, Jason announces his candidacy for president, even though he has no idea who he is. Given the competition, Jason wins by a landslide.

Bourne Loser - Jason wakes up in a comic strip and thinks the artist has made him a little "too hippy".

Natural Bourne Killers - Jason wakes up in the trunk of a car driven by Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis while traveling across the country on a Route 666 killing spree.

Bourne Again - in a takeoff of 50 First Dates, Jason keeps waking up on the same day over and over again, and to make matters worse, Andie McDowell is there every morning.

Help me out here!
