Yes, but Bond hasn't been a trendsetter since Connery. After that, they adapted to whatever movement was going on at the time in order to stay relevant. Blaxploitation leads to Live and Let Die
; the Bruce Lee Kung Fu fad gives us The Spy Who Loved Me
; Star Wars
leads (directly) to Moonraker
; Raiders of the Lost Ark
led to Octopussy
; and the resurgence of Hong Kong chopsocky led to Tomorrow Never Dies
. It's how the movies stayed on top of things.
So, sure, they'll have a Bourne feel to them, but that doesn't mean they'll be Bourne clones. As stated before, I don't see any danger of confusing the two characters, or the overarching storylines.
