Paramount Pictures has confirmed that Chris Pine will play CIA analyst Jack Ryan in the latest installements from the franchise based on the Tom Clancy novels.
According to Variety, Paramount Film Group president Adam Goodman said, "Tom Clancy created an unforgettable character with Jack Ryan. With Chris in this role, we've taken our first step in creating a re-boot that lives up to the successful lineage of the franchise."
Alec Baldwin first played the character in 1990â€™s â€œThe Hunt for Red October,â€ Harrison Ford played Ryan in 1992â€™s â€œPatriot Gamesâ€ and in 1994â€™s â€œClear and Present Danger,â€ and Ben Affleck tackled the role in 2002â€™s â€œThe Sum of All Fears.â€
This is the second Paramount franchise Pine is involved in, as he previously played James T. Kirk in â€œStar Trek." Way to go Chris! Sounds like someone is well on their way to becoming the next Jason Bourne!
And yet he still seems so humble and sweet...aww!
