Chris Pine will star as Jack Ryan in winter or early spring
HollywoodNews.com: Notice any big franchise titles missing from the summer box office?
Remember novelist Tom Clancy’s character Jack Ryan?
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura reveals that Jack Ryan will return before the cameras in “Moscow” in either late winter or early spring. Chris Pine of “Star Trek” fame is expected to fill the shoes of Ryan who has been played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck in the past.
“Moscow” isn’t based on any of the Clancy novels. Plot follows Ryan, just out of the Marines, before he joins the C.I.A., working as a financial advisor to a Russian billionaire.
Ryan gets framed and must clear his name while rescuing his wife. No director has been attached at this time.
The last Jack Ryan title starring Ben Affleck, “The Sum of All Fears,” made $118.9 million at the summer box office in 2002.
