LOS ANGELES — Author Tom Clancy's most well-known character Jack Ryan will return to theaters next year in the form of up-and-coming A-List actor Chris Pine (Star Trek, Unstoppable, This Means War). The current working title for the project is "Jack Ryan" and the picture is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Frankenstein, Hamlet, Thor). Branagh will also serve as the film's villain. The movie will also star Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner.
In the latest installment, Ryan makes the move from the Marines to financial consultant for a Russian billionaire. Ryan is then framed and forced to go on the lamb all due to a sinister terrorist plot.
Ryan first appeared on the Silver Screen, played by Alec Baldwin in "The Hunt For Red October" (1990). Harrison Ford picked up the mantle for the next two Ryan ventures: "Patriot Games" (1992) and "Clear and Present Danger" (1994). It would be eight years before Ryan returned to cinemas in "The Sum of All Fears" (2002) played by Ben Affleck.
"Jack Ryan" is slated to open on December 25, 2013.
