Many writers have tried to write this Jack Ryan movie. All have failed.
Paramount thought they could make a Chris Pine-starring Jack Ryan film before ‘Star Trek 2′. They thought wrong.
Jack Ryan is returning, but will be played by an entirely new handsome actor.
Anthony Peckham, the writer behind Sherlock Holmes and Invictus, is Paramount's choice to pen the latest Jack Ryan film, Empire Online is reporting. The film, starring Chris Pine and directed by Jack Bender, will mark the 5th time the iconic Tom Clancy character has appeared on the silver screen.
In the film, Ryan and his trusty sidekick Watson will attempt to stop an attack on Nelson Mandela as he watches a rugby game atop the Tower of London. That's my guess, anyway. What do I look like, a god damn 19th century detective?
