Chris Pine and Kevin Costner in another new image from the new Jack Ryan film
Filming is underway in Manhattan on the new Jack Ryan film and it’s clear Paramount is excited about rebooting the franchise that has seen Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan appear in THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, PATRIOT GAMES, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER and THE SUM OF ALL FEARS. Chris Pine is taking over as Jack Ryan, who was previously played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. Obviously, Paramount is going younger this time around (which is funny since Tom Clancy encouraged them to do that with PATRIOT GAMES) and this film will focus on Jack Ryan’s transition from soldier to financial analyst to CIA operative/analyst.
The Jack Ryan film is set to star Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. Yesterday we got our first look at Jack Ryan in character, riding around Manhattan on a motorcycle. Today we get a glimpse of Chris Pine and Kevin Costner on a Manhattan rooftop. I assume this image is from later in the film since Kevin Costner’s character (William Harper) is the man that recruits Jack Ryan into the CIA. Kevin Costner is set to reprise his role in WITHOUT REMORSE. JACK RYAN hits theaters on Christmas Day, 2013.
