Chris Pine doing “Star Trek” sequel before Jack Ryan


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: In the battle of big-budget franchises vying for Chris Pine’s attentions, the “Star Trek” sequel may be winning out over a planned reboot of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan franchise.

That makes sense on some level, as anticipation for a new “Star Trek” is extremely high right now while the Ryan franchise has been on ice since Ben Affleck’s turn in 2002’s “The Sum of All Fears.”

But instead of rumors, Deadline’s now reporting that problems with the Jack Ryan script have officially shifted that project to the backburner so that Pine can dive right into J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” sequel.

“Paramount’s expectation is for the ‘Star Trek’ sequel to start production by the fall so that the studio can keep that film’s projected June 29, 2012 release date,” Mike Fleming writes.

While original “Star Trek” writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci hammer away at the screenplay (with the great Damon Lindelof), it has yet to be confirmed that Abrams will return to direct. More on that, I’m sure, as we get closer to Abrams’ “Super 8” release in June.
