JACK RYAN, DECLASSIFIED
Best-selling author Tom Clancy died last October at age 66, but his best-known creation, CIA analyst turned action hero Jack Ryan, continues to cheat death and turn back the clock. He’s young again in JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT, the Ryan re-boot from Paramount opening January 17. Not based directly on any Clancy novel, the new film stars Chris Pine (STAR TREK, UNSTOPPABLE). Pine and director Kenneth Branagh, who also plays the film’s villain, have been given something of a clean slate to re-imagine Ryan for a new generation of geo-political thrill-seekers.
Pine, 34, who portrayed Captain James T. Kirk in the last two STAR TREK films, has boldly gone where no one but William Shatner has gone before, and as Jack Ryan, he’s following in the footsteps of three more of Hollywood’s best-loved leading men: Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. Each put his stamp on the role in four previous films. Unfamiliar with the character? Relax. We’ve prepared a dossier for you. (Click Here)
