New Jack Ryan Film To Be Written By Old Jack Ryan Film Writer
Despite the low-key announcement, it seems as though this project has been steadily moving forward, with "Lost's" Jack Bender directing and the presumably Italian Lorenzo di Bonaventura serving as producer. No other details have been released, but judging by the working title, I'm going to presume a Russian context for this story.
The Jack Ryan serial has been dormant since 2002, when Harrison Ford was replaced with Ben Affleck, and the James Earl Jones-type character was replaced with a Morgan Freeman-type character. (Inspired choice, by the way) Though no production date has been announced, it is reported that they want to get underway before year's end.
Now: GET OFF MY PLANE!
Whoops, wrong movie.
