Chris Pine to play Jack Ryan
Posted by: Sturdy
Today is Chris Pine day at Flix66.com. We just posted a story that Chris Pine will star in The Art of Making Money and now Variety is reporting that Pine will be playing Jack Ryan in the franchise reboot. Talks are still early going, so no word on what will be Pine’s first adventure as Ryan.
Jack Ryan fans know that The Hunt For Red October and Patriot Games were actually early adventures for Ryan and that everything written recently featured an older Ryan, ala Harrison Ford. When Ford was first announced to be playing Ryan, it was no secret that author Tom Clancy was not happy with the choice and wanted a younger Ryan. Well, it looks like he got his wish. Personally, I’d have liked to see Affleck have another go at it.
