Chris Pine’s Jack Ryan reboot nabs “Sherlock” screenwriter


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Super spy Jack Ryan now knows who will be putting words into his mouth.

Anthony Peckham, a screenwriter with Clint Eastwood’s “Invictus” and Robert Downey Jr’s playful “Sherlock Holmes” reboot on his resume, is about to add another tentpole franchise to the list. Paramount just tapped him to pen a Jack Ryan reboot for the studio, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Peckham already knows “Star Trek” standout Chris Pine will be his leading man, which might make it easier to find Ryan’s voice. By all accounts, this will be an early adventure in the days of Ryan, an intelligence officer born of Tom Clancy’s best-selling novels. Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck all have had a shot playing Ryan on screen.

Paramount hopes to begin filming the new Jack Ryan film early next year, with Jack Bender (of “Lost” fame) behind the cameras. More news at it develops.
