Chris Pine is the New Jack Ryan in MOSCOW
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has said that the latest Jack Ryan film will begin shooting later this year, in either the late winter months or early spring. Actor Chris Pine, who recently played Captain Kirk on the rebooted “Star Trek” film, is slated to fill the role of Ryan in the film.
The upcoming film about Ryan, entitled “Moscow,” is not based upon any of the Tom Clancy novels like the previous movies. The screenplay for the current film had been started by Hossein Amini but has been taken over by Adam Cozad. The newest film will find Ryan fresh out of the Marines and working as a financial consultant for a billionaire Russian. Ryan is eventually forced to go on the run to clear his name after being framed in a terrorist plot.
Chris Pine will take over the role of Jack Ryan in the latest film, a role that has been played in the past by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck.
